Hello! My name is Erin Chapman and I am a delegate competing for the title of Miss World Canada 2019.
In 2017 I graduated as the Valedictorian from the University of Ottawa in communications and I now work for the Canadian Paralympic Committee. As the senior coordinator of digital media content I run all social platforms, our website, and cover live para sport events whether it be a World Cup, Championship, Parapan Am Games, or Paralympic Games. Last year I had the honour to attend the Paralympic Games in PyeongChang, South Korea and this year I will be heading to Lima, Peru with my team to provide Canadians with coverage of the Parapan American Games.
When I am not at work I am teaching dance, training in aerials, taking Krav Maga classes, or being a dancer on the cheerleading team for the Ottawa REDBLACKS. The REDBLACKS are a professional football team in the Canadian football league. Our cheer team performs at every home game, we go to the Grey Cup every season, and our team completes over 700 hours of community service per season.
I first discovered my love of pageantry in 2017 when I competed in my first pageant. Last year I was fortunate to make the top 20 of Miss World Canada 2018 with the title of Miss Ottawa World 2018, and this year I plan to go even further! I returned from India one week ago where I was representing Canada at the Miss Glam World pageant. I placed 4th runner up and won three sub-titles: Miss Congeniality, Miss Beautiful Skin, and Miss Gourmet Queen. The international experience taught me new skills about pageantry that I can apply to Miss World Canada this summer and I am so excited to be competing again and have a chance to make new friendships that will last a lifetime.
