Her satisfaction of providing emotional support by merely holding hands of family members and patients experiencing tragedy and being of presence brings inner peace knowing everyday she is helping make a difference in somebody’s life. Palliative care nursing has engraved her with the mindset of “Life is too short, time is too precious, and the stakes are too high to dwell on what might have been” – H.C. Working with individuals in our society fighting for their lives and living with terminal illnesses makes understanding quality of life in high importance. She works towards making a meaningful difference to peoples’ lives when they are at their most vulnerable states.

Most importantly she hopes that winning your hearts and support will encourage other women from different cultural backgrounds and from many walks of life to gain the courage to see that real beauty is inner beauty, and you do not need previous titles in order to gain confidence to put yourself on a national stage. Everybody starts from somewhere, and anyone can be a Miss Universe Canada, because no beauty shines bright than that of a good heart.

Tysia Suzuki
Road to MISS UNIVERSE CANADA 2019! 65028310
Height: 5’6
Hometown: Burnaby, BC
Languages: English, Mandarin, Spanish
Occupation: Student at Shanghai Jiao Tong University (Chinese Language and Culture)
Road to MISS UNIVERSE CANADA 2019! Tysia-10
Tysia Yu Shuen Suzuki is a recent medical school graduate who hopes to lend her voice to the community as an advocate for health, sustainable nutrition, and international relations.

Born in Richmond and raised in Burnaby, British Columbia, she moved to Herstmonceux, England after high school to study at the Bader International Study Centre, the UK campus of Queen’s University. She was accepted the following year to Fudan University, Shanghai Medical College – one of the top medical schools in China – for a demanding 6-year medical program. Tysia graduated with a Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery (MBBS) degree and made the decision to diverge away from clinical medicine to instead promote the importance of lifestyle choices and preventive healthcare. Additionally, she completed a certificate in Plant-Based Nutrition from eCornell, the online learning platform of Cornell University. She feels that this path will allow her to make a difference in nutrition, environmental health, and mental health. Tysia actively volunteers as a health education guest speaker and provides Chinese public hospital language and service interpretation. She volunteered with a Chinese preschool as an early childhood instructor and wishes to help ensure that every child has the same opportunity to learn with full health. She is very humbled by the fact that she has already been able to share health-related messages to those otherwise not exposed. And she hopes to continue on this positive trajectory of health education and support.

Tysia has spent the past several years studying and traveling around Asia, Europe, and the Americas. Her father, who is of Japanese and Chinese heritage, immigrated to Canada from Taiwan when he was ten years old, and her mother was raised in a mixed European-Canadian Mennonite household. Her early family life shaped much of her understanding of both eastern and western cultures, and her life abroad reaffirmed the importance of strengthening international cooperation for a brighter and healthier future. Currently, Tysia is a linguistic student at Shanghai Jiao Tong University where she is testing at the highest level of reading, writing, and oral Mandarin. In her spare time, she likes to teach herself Spanish and does health research. She is grateful for the opportunity to have had such a unique education and wishes to globally educate youth on how to take charge of their health and nutrition.

From her early piano-playing days to her international singing performances, she has witnessed the power music has for bringing people together. She became an active member in choirs and musical performances, going on to volunteer with the Canadian Chamber of Commerce in Shanghai as a performer for multiple sports and business-related events. In 2012, she successfully auditioned and placed top 10 at the Chinese National Tibetan Folk Singing Competition in Chengdu, Sichuan Province. She has also hosted a Mandarin travel show aimed at promoting sustainable tourism and has been a commercial model. Tysia was honored to have been invited to participate in a Roundtable Luncheon with the Former Governor General of Canada, His Excellency, the Right Honourable David Johnston and other dignitaries during their state visit to China in 2013. She hopes to use her expat life experiences to help facilitate new opportunities for advocacy of and aid in health and wellness issues.

Pageants are a new experience for Tysia, but she is excited for the chance to represent her country. Her charisma, openness, and stage experience will assist her in utilizing this opportunity to inspire and empower women everywhere to strive to achieve their goals. Tysia is thrilled and grateful for the opportunity to share the stage with such strong, intelligent, and beautiful Canadian women. Becoming Miss Universe Canada 2019 would be an honor – one which she would fulfill with dignity and pride.

Elisha Jolly
Road to MISS UNIVERSE CANADA 2019! 65196010
Height: 5’6
Hometown: Toronto, ON
Languages: English
Occupation: Volunteering
Road to MISS UNIVERSE CANADA 2019! Elisha10
Elisha Jolly was born and raised in Toronto, Ontario; she still resides in Toronto, Ontario currently. Elisha strives to be a proud Canadian Citizen, while always putting her best foot forward and leading with integrity. She graduated from Centennial College in April of 2018 with honours in Social Service Work and Indigenous Studies: First Peoples Stories. Although this may not be the direct path Elisha chooses to pursues in her life, the wealth of knowledge she gained from her studies opened her eyes about Power, Privilege and Oppression on the micro, mezzo and macro level within a society. Elisha continues to explore alternate avenues through volunteering and taking courses that interest her; she is not ready to settle just yet in a specific career, however she hopes to excel in the business world. She has an undeniable passion for learning anything and everything, because knowledge is power, and whatever she pursues she is prepared to do it with determination, hard work and above all passion and love.

This is Elisha Jolly’s first time ever competing in a beauty pageant; it is a big step forward for her as she has always had an interest in modeling and acting. Elisha can be described as humble, patient, strong, confident, and rather clumsy at times; she is without a doubt hilarious with a very bubbly addictive personality. She has no shortage on friends or meeting new people, as people are attracted to her charisma. Elisha is a very earthy person, she supports global warming in reducing her carbon footprint by driving an environmentally friendly electric car, and also she is an animal lover as she has three cats and two dogs and would love to open an animal shelter one day! Health and fitness is very important to Elisha, she eats at least one green fruit or vegetable a day religiously.

Elisha has been through many trials and tribulations as child, an adolescent and a young adult, she uses self-reflection and mediation often to understand the unfortunate events that occurred throughout out the different phases of her life, this is her mechanism for release of negative lingering feelings that only would hinder her success. Elisha comes from a family riddled with cancer and mental health, unfortunately her brother one year older then her was diagnosed with drug induced schizophrenia at 19. Elisha is capable of understanding and relating empathetically to other families going through the same thing from beginning, middle and ending stages of this illness. She donates $25 a month to CAMH foundation and remains hopeful for a break through with such a complicated intricate brain illness.

Elisha has an abundance of support from family and friends. She would like to bring a heightened awareness to mental health, sexual harassment, and the vulnerable groups within society, such as, children, youth, single pregnant women, and elderly people. She believes young people today is what will shape our society in the future and we need to instil proper education, programs, and guidance to withstand adverse impacts to which they are exposed to on a daily basis. Elisha Jolly believes that her experiences gave her the back bone she needs to fight for what is right and advocate for the voices not heard, her personal values and beliefs gives her strength, and empowers her to commit to this journey, and be the best person she can be, she is ready to represent Canada in Miss Universe 2019 competition.

Alyssa Boston
Road to MISS UNIVERSE CANADA 2019! 66020010
Height: 5’8
Hometown: Tecumseh, ON
Languages: English
Occupation: Marketing
Road to MISS UNIVERSE CANADA 2019! Alyssa10
Alyssa Boston is an ambitious, confident and innovative woman who strives to break barriers in the workplace and advocate for mental health awareness. Raised in Tecumseh, a small town in Southwestern Ontario, Alyssa’s family has always supported her unconditionally and motivated her encouragingly, which has provided her with a solid foundation. In conjunction with her inner strength and belief that she can pursue her dreams, Alyssa continues to reach for the stars in all her endeavors.

Alyssa attended the Odette School of Business at the University of Windsor and graduated with a Bachelor of Commerce degree. She focused her studies on sports management, marketing and advertising. Her academic path set the precedence for a busy lifestyle, as she currently balances three jobs while incorporating daily fitness regimes and maintaining social relationships. Alyssa is employed as a member of the marketing team for the company, Muscle Cars and Classics, waitresses at a local restaurant and works as a Community Living companion for those who suffer with mental illness. In collaboration with her sport’s experience as a youth and utilizing sports’ business as her core studies, Alyssa finds pleasure in challenging herself in male-dominated activities and roles. With her current employment in the car industry, she hopes to demonstrate that women, if they choose, can integrate and excel in these male-dominated careers.

Alyssa has been very fortunate to grow up with the opportunity to get involved in many extracurricular activities. At a young age she developed a passion for sports, primarily playing both soccer and hockey. Aside for these sports, Alyssa participated in gymnastics, cheerleading and dance. Apart from her athletic ability, Alyssa has a creative side. She took lessons in piano, singing and drawing, attempting to use these skills wherever she can. Moreover, Alyssa uses her creative mind towards costume design and art. She has originated and constructed national costumes for herself at Miss Eco International and Miss Supranational and for the titleholder of Miss Global Canada.

Alyssa’s greatest passion is pageantry. At the age of 17, she tested the waters for the first time in her hometown pageant. This experience opened a new chapter in her life, intriguing her to explore the industry. Her entry in the Miss Universe Canada Western Ontario preliminary pageant in 2014 led her to compete at the national level. She moved forth to compete and win the title of Miss Swimsuit Canada in Montreal, Quebec and place in the top 20 at the international finals in 2016.

Captivated by the multifaceted components of pageants, Alyssa’s curiosity inspired her to take on other roles in the pageant industry. During this time, Alyssa’s talent was recognized as she was selected to represent Canada in Cairo, Egypt at Miss Eco International 2018. Her competitive nature sparked her desire to participate, thus to resume her role as a contestant. Alyssa eagerly applied to compete at Miss World Canada 2018, where she placed first runner up, winning the title of Miss Supranational Canada 2018. This victory provided her with the incredible opportunity to represent Canada in Poland at the 10th anniversary of Miss Supranational.

Pageantry to Alyssa is two-fold. This experience has helped her grow into a strong, confident woman and has given her a platform to advocate for mental health awareness. Her uncle suffers from a mental illness called Schizophrenia. She learned early in life what effects mental illness can have on a person and an entire family. Alyssa has grown to understand the importance of taking care of one’s mental state as one would care for their physical health. With an active hand in the Canadian Mental Health Association and her platform on social media, Alyssa, who advocates for this cause, created #TalkAboutME in which she works to educate people about the importance of understanding mental health. She encourages individuals to share their personal stories and keep the conversation going.

Medina Bandalli
Road to MISS UNIVERSE CANADA 2019! 65371611
Height: 5’9
Hometown: Edmonton, AB
Languages: English
Occupation: Psychologist
Road to MISS UNIVERSE CANADA 2019! Medina10
With a Masters Degree in Psychology and over seven years of education at the Undergraduate and Graduate level, Medina is a Provisional Registered Psychologist who is ready to represent Canada on the world stage. Being the youngest Psychologist in her field, her first goal was to complete her educational aspirations and be professionally secure in her career by age 25. Now, Medina is ready to take on her next goal of Miss Universe Canada.

When she isnt working with clients, Medina instructs spin classes at a local spin studio. Her passion for fitness led her into instructing, however more importantly it has encouraged her to lean in opportunities that challenge her.

Having been an elite athlete in competitive gymnastics for eleven years, her passion for athletics has continued to be a central aspect in her life. Growing up Medina played on her volleyball, soccer, and basketball team, and was a sprinter and jumper on her track and field team. Now, she continues to feed her fitness passion through basketball, spin, and yoga. Not only has fitness and athletics been her safe space, it has also provided her with the experience of being in the public eye. Competing athletically and instructing fitness classes has made public speaking and engaging with audiences her norm.

With her parents migrating from East Africa to Canada, Medina was always encouraged to not only travel and experience the world, but to learn about, appreciate, and immerse herself in other cultures. Medina had the opportunity to live and study in Australia for a year, and travel to Brazil, Costa Rica, Uganda, and Kenya (to name a few). Competing in Miss Universe Canada gives her the opportunity to share with others, what living in Canada has given and taught her.

Having worked and volunteered for non-profit organizations, donating time and knowledge by sitting on boards, and being a representative and brand ambassador for foundations, Medina advocates for the importance of contributing to causes greater than yourself. She values inclusivity, empowerment, positive change, and is determined to represent these values on an international stage.

Although her ambition has pushed her to seek out opportunities to continuously grow, her friends, family, and community, and the support and encouragement they provide is what has helped her to succeed. Connection, people, and community play a large role in Medina’s life, which is she values her her friends, family, and community above anything else.

Medina believes that life will continuously happen around us- the good and the bad. Although we don’t always have control over what happens, we can control a few things that can shift our world dramatically: our reaction, our mindset, and who we choose to surround ourselves with. It is with this mindset that Medina has succeeded academically and professionally with her education and career, physically during her elite athletic career, and personally with friends, family, and strangers that she connects with. Her intention with participating at Miss Universe Canada is to be her authentic and genuine self to show how far you can go by just being yourself. Proving that although hard work and drive are two ingredients in success, being kind to yourself and others will make the success worth it. Through her involvement with the Miss Universe Canada pageant, she hopes that by leading by example of being authentic, it can help advocate similar values in others. She hopes to advocate on behalf of mental health awareness, specifically reducing shame associated with seeking support from friends and family or from a professional.

With her confidence, her drive, and her ability to connect, along with her education, experience, and values – Medina is determined to represent Canada as Miss Universe Canada 2019.

Height: 5’5
Hometown: Ottawa, ON
Languages: English, French, Spanish (Native), Dutch (Native)
Occupation: Student at Carleton University (Bachelor of Music and Minor in Arts Management)
Road to MISS UNIVERSE CANADA 2019! Aiona-10
Aiona Santana was born in Leuven, Belgium and moved to Ottawa, Ontario, Canada when she was 12 years old. Due to her parents being of Venezuelan descent, she spoke Spanish at home and Dutch at school, she considers both languages her mother tongue as she learned them at the same time. Being of such an international background allowed her to be integrated into different communities and learn about distinct cultures from a very young age. She has travelled all around the world and applies this knowledge into everything she does. Aiona is entering her third year at Carleton University where she is studying a Bachelor of Music and a Minor in Arts Management. She is very passionate about her studies and aspires to be an example for any young women pursuing a career in the entertainment industry. She hopes to show them that anything can be achieved if you work hard for it.

From an early age, Aiona Santana set out to become a performer and professional singer. Natural ability will only take a talented artist so far, but a strong will and determination has helped push this artist forward and continues to drive her development and success. She knows what hard work is and never hesitates to prove it. Her studies at Carleton University provide her with the knowledge she needs on every aspect of music. She is also studying a Minor in Arts Management which is the business side of the entertainment industry where she is pursuing her passion for marketing. With both these fields combined, Aiona is determined to create her own record label in the future where she will recruit different kinds of artists and produce their music. Throughout the course of her musical career, Aiona Santana has won over the hearts of music lovers from all walks of life. Performing at a variety of venues, making dozens of appearances, all the while recording new singles. She has performed at local events such as the Tulip Festival, participated and received trophies at the Kiwanis Festival, and many more. Aiona Santana has earned the admiration and affection of countless fans, serving as both an inspiration and role model.

She has also completed a lot of charity work with the following organizations: HOLAS (the Humanitarian Organization of Latin American Students), Relay for Life, the International Fund Initiative, UNICEF Canada, Peace of Mind Canada, and Anges D’Aide Humanitaire. These humanitarian initiatives have inspired Aiona to work on her own projects in order to raise funds for many charities, her goal in life is to use her art and platform to support different causes. Aiona believes that as humans it is our duty to help others in need and use our talents for a good cause.

Modeling and acting have always been an important part of Aiona’s life, she was signed to AMTI (Angie’s Models & Talent International) in 2018 and immediately her modelling career took off. She completed many photoshoots with different photographers around Ottawa and the GTA area which has not only given her experience in front of the camera, but it also allowed for her to completely step out of her comfort zone and embrace the person she is. Aiona has been acting since she was 7 years old, she followed acting classes from a very young age and studied in the dramatic arts program at a specialized arts high school in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. Being at this school for four years, she performed in numerous theatrical plays and studied the dramatic arts in depth. Shyness in front of the camera is not something Aiona has, she has completely embraced her talents and is able to take on any challenges that come with it.

For being only 19 years old, Aiona Santana has worked very hard towards her goals and continues to do so. She competed at the Miss Canada Latina pageant last summer 2018 and placed as the fifth finalist, this not only sparked her love for pageants, but it also inspired her ability to make a change. Hard work ethic, passion, drive, and ability are all attributes Aiona possesses. Her combination of knowledge of the world, passion for humanitarian aid, and performance experience are all aspects that will help her succeed. She is ready to take on the Miss Universe stage, proudly represent Canada, and give it her all.

Though her real name is Madison, this fun-loving 21 year old has always gone by the shortened version “Madi”. Madi Lacey was raised in the hamlet of Britt, Ontario – about an hour north of Parry Sound, a town she also considers home. She has always taken pride in where she comes from, and does her best to be involved in her community.

As an active volunteer for numerous organizations throughout the years, her most notable accomplishment was organizing a charity walk – the BIG Britt Walk – which raised $82,000 ($50,000 by herself) over a five year period for the for Britt Area Nursing Services (BANS).

Carmelle Martinez
Road to MISS UNIVERSE CANADA 2019! 65387111
Height: 5’9
Hometown: Brampton, ON
Languages: English, Filipino (Tagalog), Filipino (Bisaya)
Occupation: Audit and Tax Reporting Professional
Road to MISS UNIVERSE CANADA 2019! Carmel10
Carmelle Nathalie Martinez was born and raised in Tago, Surigao del Sur, Philippines and moved to Brampton, ON when she was 14 years old. She graduated in June 2018 with a degree in Bachelor of Business Administration; with a specialization in Accounting, from the University of Guelph-Humber in Toronto, ON. She was the recipient of the Gold Medallion for Leadership Excellence Award for her ongoing leadership contributions within her campus community during her undergraduate studies. Carmelle currently works for Deloitte Canada in London, ON, which was her dream company, because she has always wanted to work for a global leading firm that would effectively support her professional development while also making an impact within her community. Carmelle is analytical, deliberate, and passionate about gender equality, anti-discrimination, inclusivity, and female empowerment. These strengths have helped her succeed in her current role as an Audit and Tax Reporting Professional, and other previous roles within the finance department as well as being a mentor in her alma mater’s community. She hopes to attain her Chartered Professional Accounting designation in the near future.

Since moving to Canada, she has met so many inspiring individuals who have motivated her in every aspect of her life. Canada has helped her become open-minded, because of its incredibly diverse community. Her passion for cultural integration derives from her experience working with people with different cultures. Hearing stories of first-generation Canadians with the same goal as her and her family inspired her to expand her network, so she can reach out to others to offer mutually beneficial support. The hardships that her parents went through while struggling to find their first jobs to simply be able to financially support her family motivated her to aim high professionally, and to also be kind and generous to others. Carmelle hopes to one day be in a position where she can provide equal opportunities, especially to new Canadian immigrants.

In countries like Canada, every citizen can make opportunities happen by simply supporting one another. Her educational background in business has allowed her to find unique and creative ways to improve situations that deserve attention. She believes that by making use of Canada’s diverse community, it will help inspire others to build a strong sense of open-mindedness. She was extremely involved in all the schools that she attended, but now Carmelle wants to take it to another level by being involved in her community through different platforms including beauty pageants. In 2016, she competed at the Miss Progress International 2016 in Puglia, Italy and represented Canada with her advocacy on aboriginal women’s rights. Carmelle realized that by participating in beauty pageants, it provides women like her to have a platform where she can start dialogue about situations that deserves society’s attention. By driving awareness to topics such as gender quality, anti-discrimination, inclusivity, mental health, and female empowerment, the community will continue to strive to become more progressive.

Carmelle’s passion for the various societal issues and drive to make a difference in the world has made her into the independent and confident woman that she is today. She hopes that with her participation in Miss Universe Canada 2019, she will inspire others to continue pursuing their dreams, while also making a difference in the world. Her extracurricular activities, previous pageant experience, community involvement, and leadership experiences motivate and strengthen her to continue pursuing her own dream of becoming the next Miss Universe Canada.

Cephra Hasfal
Road to MISS UNIVERSE CANADA 2019! 65414210
Height: 5’6
Hometown: Brampton, ON
Languages: English
Occupation: Business Marketing Student
Road to MISS UNIVERSE CANADA 2019! Cephra10
Cephra Rose was born and raised in Brampton, Ontario to Jamaican / Chinese parents into a family of seven. Growing up in a large and diverse family, she has always felt a deep longing for her own sense of individualism amidst an extremely talented family. With interests that were fairly foreign and out of the box, Cephra was always seeking new and exciting life experiences and tended to surrounded herself with a wide circle of friends from various backgrounds and walks of life.

Cephra currently resides in Windsor, Ontario, where she is pursuing a degree in Business Marketing.

Battling anxiety and depression through most of her teenage years up into young adulthood, she struggled with finding a sense of purpose and identity in the world. Through rooting her identity in her Christian faith, she was able to overcome both, also coming to the understanding that this life wasn’t simply about her, but a greater purpose, bigger than she could ever imagine. This sparked the desire to want to reach others with similar mental struggles by encouragement through a living hope. Cephra has always strived to apply these principals by getting involved firstly in her home, inner circles, and community before furthering that outreach.

Since the age of 21, Cephra felt it was on her heart to begin an online ministry in order to be more proactive about her vision. She is currently in the process of launching her own ministry that will focus on the everyday vain pursuits of this generation that deprive them of finding true identity fulfillment. Through the ministry, she hopes to inspire young girls and women to be the best versions of themselves in order to sustain beauty from the inside out. Other causes that are near and dear to her heart include issues of poverty, mental health, human sex trafficking and social & religious persecutions.

Cephra is extremely grateful for the opportunity to be part of this year’s Miss Universe Canada competition, as it brings her one step closer to bringing her vision to life. She hopes this platform will enable her to partner with organizations that have a similar vision, allowing her to be a voice for those who don’t have one.

In a society that promotes self-indulgence, she wants to be a reminder that it is okay to love ourselves and strive to be better, but let’s make sure our souls are beautiful, too.

Sara Winter
Road to MISS UNIVERSE CANADA 2019! 65786911
Height: 5’10
Hometown: Duncan, BC
Languages: English
Occupation: Golfer
Road to MISS UNIVERSE CANADA 2019! Sara-w10
Determined, ambitious, and hard working are all qualities that describe Sara Winter. She feels passionate about empowering women to pursue their goals, and wants to show the diversity we have in today’s society. As a hard working athlete competing against professional golfers on a mini tour, along with representing Canada twice on the international stage, in 2012 and 2014, she realizes how stereotypes influence many, but is determined to break the stigma that beauty pageants are given, and strives to demonstrate that we should never set limitations for ourselves.

Sara attended York University as a honour roll student where she was earning her Bachelor of Science, although she believes that education is crucial, she also feels that life is to short to not fulfill your passions. Taking a risk, she decided to take time off her studies, to pursue her dream. Golf can be a very male dominated sport, and it may feel intimidating for women. Sara saw how she could be a role model for young girls, and make a positive impact. For example, she is a top ambassador for a company called FOREher Sports, where they connect, educate, and inspire women on and off the golf course. Sara’s dream is to earn her LPGA tour card one day, but along the way if she can help grow the game and get more women and children involved, that feels just as rewarding.

At 15 years old Sara signed her first international modelling contract with an agency in Seoul, Korea. Quickly maturing and learning how much pressure women have to look a certain way, she struggled to feel like she was enough. This incident drove her to enter Miss Teen Canada 2011, where she earned Miss Photogenic. After experiencing the deeper meaning of beauty pageants, Sara used her platform to volunteer at Girl Scouts: an organization helping young girls overcome self esteem issues, and Kids Now: an organization that comforts cyber bullying victims. Both issues she dealt with growing up , and felt her relatable approach would be helpful to others.

Sara naturally has a passion for travelling, and feels intrigued to learn about new cultures. Opportunities through modelling and pageants have allowed her to travel , which has opened her eyes to many issues across the world. She aspires to help the youth succeed to their full potential, and achieve their dreams. For example, being a social influencer for a kids golf clothing company, where she got to encourage today’s youth towards their goals, and act as a role model. Although this is just a small gesture, Sara believes that regardless of what struggles you may be facing, having someone believe and support you can go a long way, and she hopes to put together many more projects in the future across the globe.

Sara’s athleticism, determination and positive mindset, make her a unique contestant and an even more relatable role model. Having represented Canada at SuperModel International 2012, and Top Model of the World 2014, give her the experience and confidence she needs to thrive and make Canada proud on the Miss Universe stage.

Height: 5’8
Hometown: London, ON
Languages: English, Polish
Occupation: Student at Western University (International Relations)
Road to MISS UNIVERSE CANADA 2019! Jacque10
Jacqueline Wojciechowski is a first generation Canadian born and raised in London, Ontario Canada. Her parents Mariusz and Ania Wojciechowski came to Canada in the early 1990’s from Poland, both with a vision of providing a brighter future for not just Jacqueline and her sister Sandra, but also for others by fostering over a dozen children in the past 17 years. Mariusz and Ania still to this day are foster parents and remain pillars of strong family values in both so many children’s eyes but also in the community. Jacqueline and her sister Sandra Wojciechowski have had so many foster brothers and sisters, it has been such a learning experience from each relationship and a blessing being part of such a strong family unit. By getting to share such a unique experience, she has found a fondness for helping children and hopes to bring awareness in any way that can benefit a child who needs a home.

While on her educational path of obtaining a Bachelor’s Degree in International Relations at Western University, she strives to find a career that will help bring cultures and families together. Jacqueline currently works as a Medical Office Receptionist as well as teaches Polish folk dance for the last 6 years and is an active member in her Polish community. One of the most cultural influencing aspects of her life revolves around dance and Jacqueline feels it truly is the universal language. Her involvement with Cracovia (a Polish folk dance group) has allowed her to not only learn and instill the rich Polish dance history in her community’s children, but has also allowed her to travel and perform in Europe.

Jaqueline has travelled to numerous countries, each one giving her insight and knowledge of how different societies and cultures function, sharing the joys and differences that are the very essences of life. These interactions have fueled Jacqueline’s dreams to become an ambassador of not just our great nation, but of our universe.

Jacqueline is no amateur when it comes to the pageant stage. As a former Miss Canada Globe 2013 who continued to be the first Canadian to win Miss Globe 2014, she knows what the pageant life is all about. The strength and determination that each contestant on any stage must endure is tremendous, and Jacqueline is ready to show what raw, sheer intrepidity she has in her path for the crown.

For Jacqueline the crown represents every woman. It represents a dream of progression. It represents a step forward for what hard work and certitude that women strive for every day. Women have fought for so long, so hard, and women are changing the world now more than ever!

Throughout the years Tiyana has stayed involved with the dramatic arts & was cast in her High School Production “Murder Mystery Dinner Theatre”. A role of a washed-up Rockstar intended to be for a man, & that she decided to audition for anyway and got the part! Always driven and focused she entered CMTC.

She has attended various classes around the city including Second City & Armstrong Acting studios, where she studied worked her way up to being invited into the Masterclass Level. With this knowledge she created an Acting program for kids back in her hometown at Studio E Music & Arts School.

That who you are isn’t defined on any one thing you do, but the multiple experiences that make you who you are. She wants to spread the message that “Life is a Journey” and encourage people not to fear, but to take that journey. She believes that God has a plan & purpose for everyone and keeps that at her centre core.

Height: 5’8
Hometown: High Prairie, AB
Languages: English
Occupation: Instructional Assistant
Road to MISS UNIVERSE CANADA 2019! Samant10
Born and raised on a cattle ranch near High Prairie, Alberta, Samantha Stokes has been immersed in the strong morals and values the western way of life has to offer for as long as she can remember. Her western roots and passion for agriculture opened many doors at a young age to this 23-year-old Alberta woman.

Samantha has currently completed two years of her Bachelor of Education Degree. She plans to complete her degree and further her studies in the fields of Equine Therapy and Animal Assisted Wellness. Samantha plans to open a facility to develop programs targeting children with disabilities, mental health and life coaching. Samantha actively works on educating herself in these areas and has recently completed the most widely used, acclaimed and researched suicide prevention training in the world.

By 19 years of age, Samantha had won three professional Rodeo Queen titles, including the coveted title of Miss Rodeo Canada in 2016. This small-town farm girl was one of the youngest to ever be crowned and completed over 1000 volunteer appearances across Canada, the United States, Australia and Holland during her three queen reigns. As the Official Ambassador for the Canadian Professional Rodeo Association, Samantha enjoyed representing her association and country with dignity and grace.

She thoroughly enjoys volunteering closely with organizations who promote the personal development of young women. For the last three years she has sat on the Board of Directors for the Miss Rodeo Canada Pageant encouraging young women to follow their dreams and become the best possible versions of themselves. This desire to motivate young women ignited early in her teenage years and has led to Samantha to her role as a pageant coach and motivational speaker to many young women and youth groups across Alberta. Her ambassador roles also led her to model for several different companies across Canada and the United States.

Always striving for a greater understanding of other cultures, Samantha has travelled to ten beautiful countries in pursuit of what sets her soul on fire. In 2018, she completed an International Business Tour across the Czech Republic, Austria, Slovakia and Hungary.

Samantha believes that becoming Miss Universe Canada is both an honor and a privilege to never be taken lightly. This patriotic, born and raised Canadian woman believes you would be granted a once in a life time opportunity to represent a strong country of freedom and acceptance. She looks forward to the endless opportunities to inspire youth while continuing to instill strong morals and values to all those her cross her path during this journey.

Lesley Seitz
Road to MISS UNIVERSE CANADA 2019! 66190710
Height: 5’4
Hometown: Surrey, BC
Languages: English
Occupation: Library Assistant
Road to MISS UNIVERSE CANADA 2019! Lesley10
Lesley Seitz is a passionate tennis player, baker, singer, and charcoal artist who enjoys reading books by J. R. R. Tolkien, J. K. Rowling, and Kiera Cass. She has achieved a Library and Information Technology diploma from the University of the Fraser Valley in Abbotsford, BC, and now works as a Library Technician at Kwantlen Polytechnic University. Lesley has lived in British Columbia her entire life and is interested in pursuing an education towards Teacher Librarianship, which will lead to a full-time Teacher Librarian position within an elementary school library.

Lesley believes the lack of proper libraries in Canadian education systems needs to be addressed. Participating in Miss Universe Canada 2019 offers Lesley the opportunity to bring awareness to this important initiative. After visiting, and volunteering, at several schools and comparing the libraries within these schools, she has come to realize that access to knowledge entirely depends on budget. Schools with limited budgets are unable to provide students with certain experiences, which can only be achieved through a proper library.

Lesley is a passionate supporter towards the Love of Reading Foundation, which provides aid to elementary school libraries across Canada, and is focused on drawing awareness to the work the Love of Reading Foundation is currently doing in Canadian communities. To be able to assist with aiding elementary schools across Canada, is an honor for Lesley since books, and other forms of information access, have had a positive impact on her life.
Lesley hopes to enhance the lives of young people by providing them with the ability to access books within their school systems, and to improve access to education and literature for Canadian students.
