The Miss World Canada competition is brimming with some of the most talented and beautiful women, but they’re more than pretty faces. Miss World Canada recently went under new directorship and is full of fresh young faces, so you can be excused for not knowing much about Miss South Western Ontario World, Joana.
Here are five things you didn’t know about the 25-year-old.
1. She is from Windsor, Ontario
If Joana win’s Miss World Canada she will be the second representative to compete at Miss World from Windsor, Ontario. The first Windsor representative was Lana Drouillard, who was crowned Miss World Canada in 1971.
2. She started her own business
Currently, Miss SWO is a private tutor in both English and Mathematics. She started peer-to-peer tutoring with her mom when she was just 12 years old, and continued tutoring through high school and university. She see’s working with children as her calling and is passionate about being a role model for her students. Her business is called My Clementine.
3. She considers cooking to be her greatest talent
The Miss World Canada competition does have a talent portion but cooking may not be an option for this Windsor native. Miss SWO says there is nothing she enjoys more than preparing delicious, healthy meals to satisfy her friends and family. She loves to cook cuisine from all over the world, especially traditional Chinese dishes.
4. She has travelled to every province in Canada
When she was thirteen years old she promised her teacher that she would visit every province in Canada. By age 21 she accomplished this goal, and now would like to visit each of the three territories. She hopes others will be inspired to travel through Canada and visit its natural wonders.
5. She is a triathlete
Joana loves staying in shape. She competed in her first triathlon in 2015 and is eager to swim, bike and run again.
