World Class Beauty Queens: Please tell us about yourself.
I am Canadian born of Polish parents. I can speak Polish, English and French. Growing up, I was blessed to spend my youth travelling with my father, an oncologist, These experiences shaped who I am today and gave me an understanding of people and cultures. I graduated from the University of British Columbia in Art History and English Literature. I now have a masters in Education. I am a French and Art teacher. I love inspiring my students to be creative. I prefer to introduce my students to new art mediums and create original works of art instead of doing step by step crafts. I donate my work to art auctions to raise money for charities. My family has lodge in the Canadian Rocky Mountains, Mount Engadine Lodge, where we try to provide a uniquely Canadian experience to our guests. I love spending time with my family and I am always working on ways to help others.
World Class Beauty Queens: What does women Empowerment means to you? I believe that Women Empowerment means living a life where you don’t need to be concerned with the opinions of others as long as your motives are always pure of heart.
World Class Beauty Queens: Tell us about your pageant history.

World Class Beauty Queens: What inspired you to do your first pageant? I are up watching pageants with my grandparents and mother. I can remember distinctly watching the Mrs World pageant with my family the day Mrs Poland won Mrs World. I can remember her purple gown, her hair and even her winner’s walk perfectly. As a child I knew I would one day compete in pageants. I think I lost that dream as a teenager and then one day, in my early twenties, my mom suggested I compete in a local pageant, I did! And then it began.
World Class Beauty Queens: Why did you choose to compete for your current title? I was encouraged to do so by the previous Canadian title holder. I knew her from my Universe Days.
World Class Beauty Queens: To those unfamiliar with your pageant system please tell us what is it about? Mrs Globe raises money for the WIN foundation. WIN foundation was founded by Dr Tracy Kemble. The foundation offers classes to help women out of and to stay out of abusive relationships. The goal of our pageant is to support these women. The pageant also focuses on the divine feminine and celebrating and empowering femininity.
World Class Beauty Queens: What are you being judged on during the competition? Evening Gown, Personality Profile and Swimsuit. However, many other aspects are taken into account in an informal way (social media, attitude, accountability to meeting deadlines and responsibility). We also raise many for the WIN foundation, which allows a delegate to win the Choice of the People title.
World Class Beauty Queens: Tell us about your experience during the competition. I met many wonderful women who I felt a genuine connection with. I made life long friends within this incredible community!
World Class Beauty Queens: Tell us about your platform or what cause do you volunteer for. My platform for the pageant is to empower women. I am currently raising funds for our charity, WIN. I am pleased to say I am currently 8th out of 80 countries. This standing fluctuates on daily basis.
World Class Beauty Queens: What appearances have you done with your title? I have done fashion show and volunteered art classes and helped with auctions.
World Class Beauty Queens: What are some of your achievements? I won the Friendship Award at the Globe pageant in June. I cherish this achievement as I was voted in my my fellow delegates. I also design my gowns, swimsuits and national costume. I have also worked with First Nations artists, to help me with my costume.
World Class Beauty Queens: What makes you stand out from all those other beautiful girls? This is a hard one because I feel that on stage I am in competition with myself. I always want to do better than I did previously, with my walk, my gown or whatever it may be. All the contestants are beautiful and have so much to offer. In the MRS division, we are all so different it becomes hard to compare.
World Class Beauty Queens: Tell us about the moment your name was called out as the winner. I was ecstatic but at the same time a little sad my son and husband weren’t there, in person, to see me win. I love sharing experiences with the ones I love.
World Class Beauty Queens: What does it mean to you to be a Beauty Queen? To be a Beauty Queen means to uphold feminine and traditional values and to empower them. I think that often times this is counter-culture and I want women-hood to be celebrated and not to be dismissed. In Canadian culture I find women are encouraged to take on traditionally masculine roles are held in higher esteem,. I believe women can do anything they wish but do not need to dismiss their divine femininity to do so.
World Class Beauty Queens: How did competing in pageants helped your life? Pageants helped me with unleashing my creativity on a stage. I was able to showcase my designs of gowns etc. It also is the only place I could be myself without feeling judged - as crazy as that sounds!
World Class Beauty Queens: How did pageants helped your selfesteem and body image? Self esteem yes, body image - no. That is still something I am working on.
World Class Beauty Queens: You are an inspiration to all the girls out there. How does it feel? I truly believe that pageantry is amazing. I feel that unlike modeling you don’t need to be certain height or age so it is all inclusive. With enough work and dedication, anyone can be successful - Genetic lottery does not determine the winner. Hard work does.
World Class Beauty Queens: What is your on stage strategy to win the judges over? I feel like my walk is spot on. My mother was model and I think she taught my sister and I how to walk stage since we took out first steps as toddlers.
World Class Beauty Queens: How did you prepare for your competition? Preparing took thousands of hours. Making gowns, costumes, social media, appearances, raising funds, preparing speeches. This is a full time job and a half. I could have never done it without my family.
World Class Beauty Queens: What are your tips for learning better pageant walk? Practice in front of a full length mirror. Also, make sure you can walk in all your outfits. Some gowns are difficult - I’ve tripped on a few. For this reason, I always suggest high slits.
World Class Beauty Queens: What are your tips for choosing right pageant dress? Make sure it fits your body. It need to accentuate your best features. Unlike runway models, who are meant to be walking clothes hangers, and showcase the clothes, your gown need to showcase you!
World Class Beauty Queens: What are your tips for winning interview? Confidence, practice and speak about topics you know about. If you can answer questions with passion, you will be score better in this portion.
World Class Beauty Queens: What is one mistake that you've done during competing you wish you could redo and fix it? Answering a question too quickly. I wish I had paused and thought for a few seconds to give a more detailed answer. More stage time!
World Class Beauty Queens: What other mistakes are made by girls during the contest? I don’t notice other girls' mistakes to be honest. I am in competition with myself during a pageant. I think sometimes other people are too focused on their competition and lose opportunities to be helpful, to make a friend or to make memories. Experiences are better when they are shared.
World Class Beauty Queens: Any modeling or acting experience? I modelled since I was 13 years old and was a host in a pilot project.
World Class Beauty Queens: What are your plans for 2020 as a Queen? I plan to raise more money for the WIN foundation and hopefully find Canadian delegates for Mrs Globe.
World Class Beauty Queens: What kind of legacy do you want to leave behind? I hope people remember me as someone who influences other to take chances and mentor women and girls to get involved in anyway they can.
