It is with great joy that I announce that I have been selected to represent the beautiful province of Newfoundland and Labrador at the upcoming Miss Universe Canada pageant this upcoming July. Competing at this pageant has been a dream of mine for as long as I can remember, and I am both excited and humbled by this opportunity.
What would being Miss Universe Canada mean to me?
Being Miss Universe Canada would give me the opportunity to have not only a national platform but an international one to advocate for stronger human rights and more specifically women’s rights across the globe. This has been something that I have been passionate about for a very long time, and I take every opportunity available to work on behalf of women’s rights.
My goal as Miss Universe Canada 2020 would be to show young women and girls across the world that they can do anything they choose to in their lives, from a career in STEM to holding elected office. I have been involved in the pageant world for many years, and I have seen delegates who have been engineers, pharmacists, business women, future doctors, and so many more incredible things. This is what Miss Universe is about – being the best version of yourself and a role model to those who see themselves reflected in you.
I am looking forward to this opportunity of a lifetime, and I hope you will follow along on my journey.
