As many of you may or may not know, I am new to the pageantry industry. I have decided to compete in the Miss World Canada pageant to try something new and be able to make a difference in my community. I was very nervous when it was time for the regional pageant. I was worried about things such as if they would like me or not. I thought the girls would be really competitive and hard to talk to. BOY WAS I WRONG. The weekend of the regional pageant was one of the best weekends I have spent in Toronto. All the girls were so nice! We all sat together talked and laughed. By the end of the weekend we all got to know each other and had a great time!
There is one girl that I have gotten to know very well during those two days and she is MISS VAUGHAN 2017 (Rushi Chakrabarti). She is my pageant sister! We have each others back no matter what and we’re always there for each other. We are both competing in the Miss World Canada pageant but it definitely does not feel that way! We help each other out when we’re not sure about what to do. We are in this pageant together and its great to be doing this with my new Best Friend!
I can still remember the first time we started talking. My cousin asked me to approach her at registration but I was too shy. When I built up the courage to do so, this amazing friendship started! We spent the weekend together from learning the opening dance steps together to being crowned Miss Windsor 2017 and Miss Vaughan 2017. Since that day, we keep in touch every week and check up on each other. We get along very well and we are very alike! We think the same way and have the same jokes. I’m so glad I met someone as amazing as her and I’m so excited to see her again for the Miss World Canada pageant this July!
I now have a new friend to visit when I go to Toronto and could not be happier!
