2017 Sponsorships

I am proud to present my 2017 Miss Universe Canada sponsors that have graciously offered to help me take hold of my dreams and future. Many of my sponsors are based central in the Okanagan Valley and City of Kelowna. I plan to represent them in the best light possible as an official BC delegate — attending exclusive events, making speeches, appearing in promotional and more as a respectful thank-you for their support. 

If this sounds like something you'd like to have/be apart of, please contact me today to get your name on the official 2017 sponsor list.

She is clothed with strength and dignity, and she laughs without fear of the future. She speaks with wisdom, and teaching of kindness.
