My dear friends,

Welcome to my blog!

I am sincerely thankful of Residence Ambiance Ile Des Soeurs, une résidence du Groupe Maurice, who warmly welcomed me to introduce myself, share my mission, as well as my values that pushed me to be on this challenging journey to Miss World Canada 2018 today.

 

I am so grateful to our elderlies whose efforts, sacrifices, and achievements in the past helped to shape the future of the society that our generation is now living in and taking advantage of.

I believe that elderlies hold an important role in the society as they provide guidance on spiritual and community matters. I have always looked to them as advisors having the knowledge of many years of living and carrying with them the history and stories of the past which could be a great source of learning and inspiration in our life. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

My public speaking tour at the Ambiance for the elderlies gave me one of the most joyful experiences. They strongly encouraged me to keep my energy and motivation high and never give up on my goals no matter what obstacles will be on my way.

I learned a lot from their words of wisdom and I loved the memories that some of them shared with me about their past when they were at my age!

Also, the beautiful couple that you can see below taught me that true love can exist at any time and at any age. They are around 90 years old now and found each other a couple of years ago at this place. They met in the yoga class for the 1st time and that was the start of their love.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Thank you and love you all!💕

Tina Khadivi (your Miss)

My dear friends,

I hope you are doing great and you are very welcome to my blog!

This picture was taken early in the morning at Elgar Community Centre where they put the local newsletters for people.

I would like to appreciate one of the most popular and engaging magazines in our area Le Magazine de l’Île-des-Soeurs for having me on their coverage and writing an article about my goals and journey to Miss World Canada 2018.

Words cannot express how exciting it is to receive such this strong interest and support from various newsletters to interview with me and share my adventurous life story, challenges that built my mindset, and lead me to have a mission of giving back to our society, especially on my beautiful journey to Miss World Canada 2018.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This excitement is due to the fact that I feel that they might have seen some potentials on a young (24 years old) woman who is trying her best to be the best possible example and source of help, peace, and inspiration of the others.

2 days after publishing the article I received some messages from people who were impressed by my story and dedication to the society. Therefore, I decided to go to Elgar Community Centre where that they had put the magazines so that I can interact with people more at a personal level, fulfill their curiosity by answering their questions, and ask if there is any cause that I can support or issue that I can contribute in solving in our area.

It has always been my dream to be a role model in my own way, not the one that people can just read about or see on television, but the one accessible to people, and known by many at a personal level (like a close friend).

Sometimes it takes a lot of time and energy to make it happen, but my heart believes that it absolutely worth it and that is the reason that I am here in Miss World Canada path.

The picture with a red dress was taken by Mrs. Delphine Bergeron (the reporter) on May 9th right before getting to the conference I had the privilege to be sent to on behalf of John Molson School of Business, Concordia University. The event was held by Montreal International Relations Council (CORIM), at hotel Bonaventure where the industry leaders from different parts of the world (Finland, Brazil, Saudi Arabia, …) were invited to cover important topics such as:

-Encouraging medium-sized businesses to grow
-Strengthening the internationalization of companies
-Women and entrepreneurship
-Financing strategies for tomorrow’s jobs

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I have always believed in a golden sentence which says “Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever.”
― Mahatma Gandhi

Thank you and love you all!💕

My dear friends,

I hope you are doing great and you are very welcome to my blog!

Sometimes, it does not take a big donation to make an impact. Sometimes it’s a lot of little donations that can make considerable changes in people’s lives!

Research shows that men’s health often takes a back seat when it comes to doing routine checkups and seeing a healthcare provider for symptoms of a health problem which can lead to serious consequences.

As women, we might know how important it is to care about men’s health in our society and support them to our maximum capacity. We can always show our support through participating in the fundraising events, volunteering, and donating to the causes changing the face of men’s health such as Movember and bring hope to our society.

Here is one of the pictures that I have from last year taken in the month of November, with one of my best friends Lisa, to support the event which was held by CASA CARES to raise money and awareness for men.

I also save money, even a small amount, but every year to donate to this cause with a hope of one day not finding a man (a father, brother, husband, and friend of someone) being sick!

Let’s work together & encourage each other to beat cancer threatening the lives of many!

I hope you enjoyed reading it and I would love to hear about your experiences supporting the disadvantaged ones seeking for your help on my Official Facebook page ( Tina, Miss NI -Quebec World 2018)!

Thank you and love you all!💕

My dear readers,

I hope you are doing great and you are very welcome to my blog!

This picture was taken on June 1st early in the morning in the beautiful sunny Mount-Royal Park. We gathered together to raise awareness and fight for the blood cancer that many people in our society are suffering from. This was done through Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) organization.

 

 

I would like to sincerely appreciate Mrs. Jessica Dupuis (the Fund Development Manager of the organization) who came to a cafe near my living area so that we can discuss more in details regarding their organization values, strategies, and programs that I would like to contribute in both in the summer and fall (after the Miss World Canada pageant).

I love the fact that the organization’s research on cancer, provided services and information is not limited to the ones diagnosed with the disease in Canada, but also across the globe.

For me, nothing is as fulfilling in life as being able to make positive impacts on people’s lives. I try to use my maximum capability to be involved in and support various causes such as breast cancer, blood cancer, prostate cancer, mental disorders that I am working on.

I hope you enjoyed reading it and I would love to hear about your experiences with any type of cancer & support that you received from people in the society my Official Facebook page ( Tina, Miss NI -Quebec World 2018)!

Thank you and love you all!💕

My dear readers,

I hope you are doing great and you are very welcome to my blog!

I love socializing and being around people who are the leaders of our society, dedicated to people, try hard to make positive changes in communities through their projects, strategies, and actions!

Learning from them and trying my best to shadow their mindset help me do better in my social initiatives on my journey to Miss World Canada 2018 and after.

I’m really fortunate to meet with the Quebec Minister of Finance, Carlos J. Leitão for the 2nd time.

Before I had the pleasure to meet with him as one of the selected students from John Molson School of Business (Concordia University) having the opportunity to participate in the discussion and exchange of ideas regarding Quebec’s budget priorities, policies implementation, and the economic development plans.

Last month I was invited to an event held in Quai 5160 in LaSalle where I had the opportunity to meet with the Minister again. Last time I introduced myself as a :

-A representative of our province (Quebec) in the final stage of Miss World Canada 2018

-A nominee for the RBC Top 25 Canadian Immigrants’ Youth Awards (Minster Leitão is an immigrant as well)

-A double degree (3rd year) student in finance & international business

-A voting member of the Board of Director Finance Committee at JMSB

When I went to approach Minster Leitão he knows exactly who I was (surprisingly!!!) and kindly asked me how I was doing and we went on to have a quit warm and friendly conversation.

 

It was a pleasure to meet one of the most knowledgeable and top-ranked (based on Bloomberg) economists in the world and someone who is impressively energetic, respectful and dedicated to our society.

I hope one day I can become one of them having the honor to serve our nation and people at such this large scale and scope.

I hope you enjoyed reading it and I would love to hear about your experiences and inspirations you got through facing successful leaders and lessons you got from them on my Official Facebook page ( Tina, Miss NI -Quebec World 2018)!

Thank you and love you all!💕

My dear readers,
I hope you are doing great and you are very welcome to my blog!
 
Aren’t we lucky for having each other in our society as sources of learning and inspiration? Aren’t we lucky to have the eyes to see people who are better than us in some areas, and a brain to think about the strategies that helped them to achieve their goals, sustain their success, keep humility, and helpfulness at the same time?
 
I believe that being a good observer of the ones with outstanding achievements and a good applier of the lessons from them make us a top student of the most important class simply called life.
 
Today, I am going to share with you some of the new lessons and inspirations that I got through my meeting with the Honourable Minister Isabelle Melançon (Minister of Sustainable Development, the Environment and the Fight Against Climate Change).
 
I had the pleasure to be invited to her event for the 1st time which made me super excited to know her as one of the leaders at the deeper level, face to face.
 
I woke up at 5 am in the morning and prepared myself for her event that was on May 27th in LaSalle. When I got there I saw something that I had never noticed in more than 200 events that I participated in during the past 4 years of living in Canada.
 
I got in and I saw a lady standing at the entrance, warmly welcoming, hugging and appreciating every single guest for being present at the event. Yes, she could not be anyone except Isabelle!
 
After a warm welcome and a small conversation, she congratulated me as someone who has the honor to represent the province of Quebec in the final stage of Miss World Canada 2018 and as a woman who fully dedicates her to the society and people through massive social contributions. I felt so excited at that moment by her empowering words that I could see the capability of even flying in myself.
 
In today’s world, sometimes we are so busy that barely see and mention each others’ accomplishments. But I think if we really know how much a small compliment can motivate the person and have a big impact his/ her life, we do not hesitate to be generous about giving it!
 
Before her speech, there was a short networking event and I tried to observe Isabelle and the other leaders in the room as much as I can to discover why people respect them that much and how they are liked strongly by the others. I can say all of them without exception were truly interested in knowing about you, your story, background. They barely said words about their own accomplishments though they had a lot to be proud of. Now I can understand why they are the leaders in our society and why they are captivating for many.
 
the more we fall in love with people, the more we are curious about them, and the less we talk about ourselves, the more people will give us the privilege to lead and guide them
 
I hope you enjoyed reading it and I would love to hear about your experiences and inspirations you got through facing successful leaders and lessons you got from them on my Official Facebook page ( Tina, Miss NI -Quebec World 2018)!
 
Thank you and love you all!💕

Dear readers of my article,

Some of us might have experienced loneliness in our lives or on our path to success. Sometimes we are not fortunate enough to keep the ones supporting and loving us unconditionally such as our family, and best friends by our side for a long time!

I always wondered how some people are so strong to stand the sadness of loss and have the courage to continue on their path lonely and achieve their goals! I wondered how a human who is quite fragile in some situations can become as strong as iron that cannot be broken by the toughest moment in life!

Recently, I had the pleasure to meet Joannie Rochette, the 2010 Olympic bronze medalist in figure skating. Listening to her while sharing her life story answered some of the unanswered questions that I carried with myself for years!

Her story was a story of an Olympian who lost her mother, due to a heart attack, only 2 days before her short program – known as the toughest program at the Olympics. After 10 minutes of receiving that tragic news, she decided to go through the challenge, give everything she has and try her best to make Canada win. I think this is the mindset and beliefs in our life working like a compass steering our success ship to the north. The external factors are just the waives that can be handled if the captain knows how the compass works and use it to guide the ship to the aimed destination.

She managed to make not only her family but also lots of people in Canada proud through the strong mindset that she set on her path and strong will to make that happen no matter what obstacles were on her way. She is known as one of the most brilliant figure skaters in its history and is the1st ever Canadian female figure skater to win the national title across all categories.

Words cannot express how lucky I was to meet with many role models and successful people on my journey to Miss World Canada 2018, and I am very fulfilled to have the opportunity to share some with you.

I hope you enjoyed reading the article!

Thank you and love you all!

My dear readers and supporters,

Attending the meeting held by MP Marc Miller; Ville-Marie- Le Sud-Ouest – Îledes-Soeurs At the Elgar community center on may 14th, was a great opportunity to not only share but to listen to the questions and concerns of people regarding infrastructure, environment and immigration factors in our society.

Although my Beauty with a Purpose platform on Miss World Canada 2018 journey is more focused on supporting sick children and optimization of the health care system in Canada as a Campus Ambassador of C4K (Capitalize for Kids), I always love to actively participate in and learn from the discussions covering variety of other topics in our society.

I am using any possible source that can enrich my knowledge and give me a more clear vision of the people’s main issues, worries, and expectations for improvements for my upcoming social initiatives.

During the meeting, I found out that the concern of many people is more toward the construction, traffic, and the plight of asylum seekers crossing the border into Canada through Lacolle in Quebec.

I cannot wait to know what you think and if there is anything that I can contribute in to make positive changes in my capability. I cannot wait for listening to your ideas!🙂

As JK Rowling, the author of Harry Potter, says “We are only as strong as we are united, as weak as we are divided.”

Let’s get together, help each other through new plans, actions and exchange of new ideas leading to great changes in our country, Canada.

Thank you for reading my article and love you all!

April 27th marked the 13th Annual Edition of the JKA Shotokan Karate-Do competition at le gymnase de l’école Ile des Soeurs.

JKA-SKD Canada is the sole organization to be certified by the Japanese Karate Association(JKA) from Tokyo, and they are representing our country (Canada) at the international level, and it was an honor for me to be among their judges, coaches, and competitors as their guest.

I am sincerely appreciative of Sensei (Master) Shahrokh Hoghooghi (Competition Director & the only holder of Dan 7 of the Karate black belt in Canada) for introducing me to his team, and congratulating me as a Miss World Canada 2018 finalist.

Having started taekwondo as a teenager and being a holder of the red belt, I can say that I was able to enrich my learning experiences from their techniques in a different field of martial art, karate. Without a doubt, I was impressed by their discipline, integrity, humility, and self-control during the fierce and intense moments of the competition. The competition was 8 hours long and had 100 competitors of different ages. These competitors had different tests individual kata, team kata, basic Kumite (battle), advanced Kumite.

As we all might have experienced, in sports we either win or a lose and sometimes the fear of failure can get the courage from people mainly children to go toward challenges such as sports competitions and this prevents them from developing their skills through the process. What really inspired me in that competition was Sensei Hoghooghi rewarding children who did not win the competition with”Effort Medal” because they tried their best. It gave the chance to every single child to go home with something to be proud of.

I think that most of us might hesitate to go toward challenges because we define ourselves by the results rather than the process. So, I hope we can all together promote this great culture in our society to appreciate and applaud each other in school, companies, competitions, etc. by efforts we put in and not merely the result we get!

Once again, thank you very much JKA Shotokan, Mr. Hoghooghi, and his amazing team who were so kind and respectful to me as their guest!

Hello everyone, I am proud to represent the province of Quebec for the Miss World Canada Final in Toronto. This is the first time I participate in a competition of this kind. Throughout this adventure I hope to inspire women and girls. Inspire people to jump and take the first steps in this gigantic world. I must admit that I am a girl like all of you, but one thing is certain, it’s that if I stand out it’s by my will and my desire to advance and adventure. I hope this week to convey my values ​​and my knowledge and what is close to my heart. Thank you for following me on this adventure.

First thing to know,I arrived here in Canada when I was 3.5 years old. Great parents have adopted me from Russia to offer me a life I could’nt hope for better. I am extremely grateful and if today I am the woman that I am, it’s a thanks to them. I have to say that I am a smiling girl, warm, optimistic and who laugh easily. In fact I really laugh a lot. I have many other qualities and flaws that make me the woman I am today. Nobody said you had to be perfect. Perfection is boring.

Furthermore, I am an active girl, my goal is to inspire girls to move and feel good about themselves. That’s why I plan to study kinesiology at university. I want to be a motivator for everyone! I want to change people’s lives whether it’s minimal or not. I want to make a difference.

That’s it for today, I hope this has allowed you to know a little more about me and that it has given you the desire to follow me throughout Miss World Canada 2018!

Bonjour à tous, je suis fière de représenter la province  de Québec pour la finale de Miss World Canada à Toronto. C’est la première fois que je participe à un concours de ce genre. Tout au long de cette aventure j’espère inspirer des femmes et des jeunes filles. Inspirer le monde à foncer et faire les premiers pas dans ce monde gigantesque. Je dois vous avouez que je suis une fille tout à fait ordinaire comme vous tous, mais une chose est sûre, c’est que si je me démarque c’est par ma volonté et mon désir d’avancer et d’aventure. J’espère tout au long de cette semaine transmettre mes valeurs et mes connaissances et ce qui me tient à cœur. Merci de me suivre de cette aventure.

Première chose à savoir, je suis arrivée ici au Canada à l’âge de 3 ans et demi. Des parents formidables m’ont adopté de la Russie pour m’offrir une vie que je ne pourrais mieux espérer. Je suis extrêmement reconnaissante et si aujourd’hui je suis rendu la femme que je suis, c’est grâce à eux. J’ai pour mon dire que je suis une fille souriante, chaleureuse, optimiste et qui ris facilement. En fait, je ris vraiment beaucoup. J’ai plusieurs autre qualités et défauts qui font de moi la femme que je suis aujourd’hui. Personne n’a dit qu’il fallait être parfait. La perfection c’est ennuyant.

de plus, je suis une fille active, mon but est d’inspirer les jeunes filles à bouger et se sentir bien dans sa peau. C’est pour cela que je prévois faire des études en kinésiologie à l’université. Je veux être un motivateur pour tous! Je veux changer la vie des gens que ça soit minime ou non. Je veux faire la différence.

C’est tout pour aujourd’hui, j’espère que cela vous a permis d’en savoir un peu plus sur moi et que cela vous a donné envie de me suivre tout au long de Miss World Canada 2018 !
