The sponsor party was a blast!! Getting to know each sponsors personally was a great experience. It was also an opportunity to meet the other beautiful women from different provinces.


By the end of the night, we got a lot of goodies that are extremely useful for us during the week and I can’t wait to try them out!

First I would like to thank Babe Box! At first I was wondering what was in the mysterious pink bag and lo and behold, there were amazing samples for hair, makeup, shoes, and nails!! I got excited!

Next, was Archer Dental! They were so sweet to make us these awesome shirts and provide us with toothbrushes and tootpaste to keep our beautiful smile and teeth pearly white and clean.

We also have The Kra Co. Their products are made from 100% Natural shea butter! I love this company because it really values women helping women, giving empowerment towards each other.

Maxine Warsh Cloth is an awesome product! It is simply a makeup remover but all you need is that cloth and warm water!! How amazing is that?

There are many more sponsors but unfortunately I couldn’t put any boomerangs here! If you check out my instagram, Facebook, or Twitter, you will find the other amazing sponsors partaking in this prestigious pageant! Check them out!!

I just want to take the time to thank this organization for setting up this send-off at Earl Bales Park for Jurice, Miss Ontario World 2017 and myself.

 

IPEN (International Professional Entertainment Network) is an organization that sends beauties and gentlemen to international pageants and partake in community events across the GTA.

Edgar Sulit, Jam Rodriguez, and James. I have no other words to express my gratitude except saying thank you. Thank you for believing in me since day one. You have spent endless hours on not just myself but the rest of the beauties and gents in IPEN to make sure we are prepared for any obstacles or challenges we may face in any upcoming pageants.

To all of IPEN family. Your endless support throughout the years is unbelievable. You took the time out of your schedule to come all the way to Earl Bales park yesterday and I know it’s not easy. Cooking food, setting up desserts, the traffic on the 401 and trying to find parking at the park. Also, to those who could not make it but took time to text or call, thank you! Your presence was there just as much. I am forever blessed and grateful to have a support system and whom I can also call family.

From the bottom of my heart, thank you all!

What a day this was!!! It was such a beautiful day to have this car wash!

To raise funds for Children’s Wish Foundation, I have decided to do a car wash. Thanks to LTO Kennedy Auto Service Centre in Brampton, we were able to take in many cars that day. From 9am till 6pm, we were non-stop washing cars from corvettes to pick-up trucks! Initially we charged $6 but people were generous enough to put in more and I’m so grateful for that! Many people asked us if we will be doing another car wash next weekend.

I want to personally thank the people who came out to help that day! After Canada Day, I know all of you wanted to rest but you came out for a great cause! I’m grateful and blessed to have the support system that I have in my life. Without all of you, this event would not be a success! I also want to thank my family and friends who came out as well. Your love and support means a lot to me!

Born and raised in Etobicoke, ON, my childhood was like any other normal childhood, except for the constant visits to the pediatrician’s office. I was born with a unilateral clubfoot which resulted in wearing a cast for a year. Then at the age of 6, it was only by accident that I found out I was hard of hearing. Growing up, I felt out of place from the rest of my classmates.

I joined a modeling workshop at the Eleanor Fulcher agency to fix my posture and confidence. By the end of it all, I did not feel quite satisfied, although I did gain a little bit of self-confidence. Then I found my true passion.

Beauty pageants! I began joining beauty pageants at the age of 13 until this very day. Beauty pageants is not all glitz and glamour. It’s about having a voice, confidence, experience, networking, and having lifelong friendships, empowerment, and the list goes on! Every year, I learned to have self love, self worth, and self confidence, and acceptance. All these things to truly learn to accept who I am, what I have, and who I surround myself with. For me, once I start to help myself, I can truly help others. That is how I found my next passion.

Helping others. Miss World Canada pageant serves what is called ‘Beauty with a Purpose.’ It’s important for me because growing up, I have learned from time and time again from my parents (who are nurses), my grandparents, my friends, or just people that I come across on the street, that it is very rewarding to give rather to receive. Growing up it was hard to accomplish my dreams or goals because I didn’t feel normal wearing hearing aids. With the support system that I have and the experience I have went through, I  want to share my story to others and help inspire them to reach their dreams and accomplish their goals despite any impediments they may have. I want to show them that with any physical disabilities they have, it should not be considered as a curse but rather a gift. As Marlee Matlin once said, “It was ability that mattered, not disability, which is a word I’m not crazy about using.”

I also enjoy traveling. Pageants allowed me to travel the world and experience its cultures and history. Through pageants, I was able to see the hospitality in Ecuador, the architecture and history of Germany, the technological advancements in Japan, taste the coffee in Colombia, and experience the colourful and vibrant culture of Nicaragua. There are so many places to see in so little time!

With my enjoyment of traveling, I found myself interested in becoming a Canadian Border Security Officer (CBSA). Two years ago, I have received my diploma for Canadian Border Security and Immigration. I have so much respect for my country that I want to give back and serve my country on frontier lines.

I hope you enjoy this post in getting to know more about me. As pageant week starts tomorrow I will be posting on a daily basis to keep everyone updated! So stay tuned.
