Hi guys! My name is Catherine and I am Miss Southwest Quebec World 2017!! I’m headed towards the competition Miss World Canada 2017 and this is all super surreal and exciting. I have always looked at these pageants with admiration and awe and secretly wished I could be up there one day and feel just as beautiful as these girls looked. Here I am now and it’s all happening! I just know that this experience will be life changing and eyeopening. It’s certainly pushing me out of my comfort zone so I’ll definitely find out new aspects of myself, things I didn’t think I could do, and I’m definitely going to learn a lot leading up to the contest and during the contest.
I have travelled a lot in the past years and I looooove to visit new places and learn about new cultures. I was very lucky to live in Dubai during my 8th and 9th grade and this probably was the most amazing thing that has ever happened to me. I met wonderful people and learned so much about the world and how Canada was viewed worldwide. You never really think of what people think of your country until you leave it. As it turns out, Canada is very well viewed country that people would love to live in. I never felt as lucky to be Canadian until I realized how great of a country it was. So one thing I have to thank this experience for would definitely be how much I came to appreciate Canada, because it’s easy to take where you come from for granted, and I would be beyond honoured to represent Canada if I ever become Miss World Canada.
I really want to use my first post to establish what I’ll be focusing on as Miss Southwest Quebec World 2017. Making a difference in my community or in the world has always been something I wanted to do, and now thanks to my title it’s even easier to help, and it certainly is what I intend to do. I believe that there is always room for improvement wether it is improving ourselves or improving our system of education. There are many children that have learning disabilities and they unfortunately do not get all the attention and help they would need. I really want to dive in their world and see what I can do to improve their situation, because every child deserves to have proper education and to have a promising future. I also think that children often suffer from an important lack of self esteem, so I would really like to find a way to teach children to love themselves and to know their worth from a young age, because confidence is a key aspect of everyone’s development and no child should ever feel like they are worthless.
I’ll be looking for sponsors during the next weeks to help me on the way towards Miss World Canada 2017 and to raise money for the charity Children’s Wish. Your support is extremely appreciated and I look forward to posting more blogs and interacting more with you guys!
