I don’t even know where to begin. I’m very grateful, proud, and beyond excited to be your Miss World Canada 2019. I’m so excited to accomplish many great things with this title and to give back. I feel very honoured to be the first Nova Scotian to have ever won this incredible title in the 63 years of the pageant’s history. I can’t wait to see what this year has in store for me!
The Miss World Canada pageant was such an amazing experience. I can’t recommend it highly enough. The memories I have made I will carry with me for life. I met so many wonderful people and I created a bond with all of the girls there. I know I have formed friendships for life. We spent so much time together throughout the week, after the pageant I felt lost without them by my side. This pageant truly helped me become the best verson of myself I can be. I became even more involved with volunteer work while developing my Beauty with a Purpose. During my volunteering at a local elementary school breakfast program my eyes were opened to the number of children in my own community living in poverty and suffering from food insecurity. I am currently participating in fund-raising projects to assist in the school breakfast program. I have also developed an educational program as part of my Beauty with a Purpose called “Grow and Learn“ where I visit school age children and speak to them about the benefits of proper nutrition and the role gardening plays in providing healthy economical food. During the session I assist the children in planting seeds so they can witness first-hand it’s growth.
I will be travelling to London, England in November to compete at Miss World. I can’t wait to see London for the first time and to meet all my new pageant sisters. I’m working very hard to prepare! I have been doing a variety of workouts and training to help get ready for the fitness challenge, polishing my interview skills, practicing my new dance solo as well as taking dance classes, planning my wardrobe, performing lots of volunteer work and further developing my own beauty with a purpose project! I have also been practicing for the top model challenge by participating in Atlantic Fashion Week and walking for several designers. I was recently a judge in a pageant for the first time and it was a lot of fun! Pageants are a great confidence booster for participants of all ages. In addition to all of these activities I am currently enrolled full time in a Bachelor of Science in Nursing. I’m very fortunate that my professors have been so incredibly supportive and understanding during this journey.
I can’t wait for this once in a life time adventure to begin!
Lots of love always,
