Where to begin! Hello there! I’m Hanna, one of the Miss World Canada contestants from Ontario! I suppose if you are taking a look at this post, it’s because you are interested in getting to know me a little better.
Let’s start from the beginning, I am a 19 year old student entering her third year of university working towards my Bachelor of Fine Arts. I am a dance major and an art student through and through, and I could not imagine myself studying anything else.
My love for dance started at a very young age, and what started as a hobby soon snowballed into my greatest passion and a part of me that I could not live without. When I am not studying or at the ballet barre, you can catch me teaching my baby ballerina’s and working with kids of all ages, teaching them the fundamental steps that for some of them, may turn into a lifelong love for the art just like their teacher.
Aside from dance, I live a life that is probably similar to most 19 year olds, I go to school I work hard, and I dream of what my future holds because it seems so close yet so far away. One of those dreams is someday being able to travel the world and immerse myself in various cultures and locations that are filled with history.
I have been lucky enough to get many experiences to travel and explore little pieces of the globe. My parents are both Bosnian, and growing up, they always made it a point to create a strong connection to my roots, and give me a sense of pride for where we come from.

My most recent big adventure was the one I took to Poland. Why Poland you may ask? It was not for the amazing sights or lovely people, but it was in fact for a pageant! Last summer I competed for the title of Miss Supranational Canada, and by some miracle, won the title! Now I am not a pageant buff, and definitely was not as trained and knowledgable within the world of pageants as some of the amazing women I have competed with, but that trip was by far the most monumental trip in my lifetime so far.
I am hoping that everything I learned during those three weeks in Poland will help guide me through Miss World Canada, and I can not wait to see what my next adventure will be.
