Let's get in touch
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.
