The path to who I am now has been challenging, wavering, and most of all rewarding. Full disclosure: I never thought I would be competing in a beauty pageant. The reason for my past
reservation was the result of pre-conceived notions affiliated with the passion I pursued in life, not a resentment toward the pageant environment or its patrons.

Here is a little bit about me; the past 7 years of my life I have represented Canada in the sport of taekwondo! I was the #1 world ranked Junior in 2016 and #13 world ranked Senior (female) in 2018 while
competing in TKD. During my tenure, I have had the pleasure of training with the most incredible
women; from Olympic gold medalists to world champions, these women were amongst the top 10%
of the world with regards to physical fitness. With help from family and friends, it was these women
and their leadership that provided me the opportunity to be a Team Canada athlete for 7 years,
accomplishing more than I thought was ever possible. Amidst these accomplishments are:
 Gold Medalist:
o Commonwealth Games, 2015 & 2017 (Female MVP in 2017)
o Spanish Open
o Presidents Cup,
 Silver Medalist:
o US Open
o Pan American Championship
 Bronze Medalist:
o German Open
 Accolades:
o Top 5 Athlete, World University Games
o Top 8 Athlete, Youth Olympic Games
o Top 8 Athlete, World Championships
o Buzz Feed’s student of the month, September 2017
 Sponsorships:
o Bell Canada, 2016 to present
o Petro Canada, 2017 to 2018

To be honest I never thought that me myself an athlete, that is constantly covered in bruises, strutting around in workout clothes, could ever even compete in a beauty pageant, let alone Miss World Canada. That was until early 2019 I had decided to retire from being a fulltime athlete and focus on my future, this being school, job opportunities and to relieve my body of the toll it had taken from taekwondo. I was beyond confused as to what to do with myself. I had spent the past 10 years of my life training 3 times a day representing my country, and now what? Everything I had worked so hard for and essentially lived for was thrown down the drain. I was so confused as to what to do with myself. That was until my mom secretly signed me up to compete for Miss World Canada. And ironically, I find myself back to what I love doing, representing my city, province and country
