Hello everyone, Miss Toronto East World here!
On July 4, I got the chance to meet with Salma Zahid, a Member of Parliament (MP) for the Federal Riding of Scarborough Centre.
MP Zahid has declared June as ‘Filipino Heritage Month’ on October 2018. The Filipino Heritage Month will continue to honour the Philippine independence day in June, and to acknowledge the rich culture and the contributions Filipino-Canadians made in the community.
I shared to her about the upcoming competition, and what I could do to help out in the community through my term as Miss Toronto East!
Meeting with MP Zahid was an honour as she acknowledges the growing Filipino-Canadian community and heritage. She happens to be working in the same geographical riding, so I will be looking forward to seeing her in the future!
