Miss World Canada 2019 Naomi Colford will crown her successor at the end of the event finale.

We’ve picked out our favorites for the competition who we think have the potential to win the title and represent Canada at Miss World 2020 stage. Let’s look at the potential candidates:

She has an unwavering sense of self, thanks to a decade of public speaking, philanthropy work and her entrepreneurial nature.

Sandy Sekhon is a photographer and a marketing professional. The diva aspires to empower and inspire young girls across the world and the same motivation inspired her to participate in the competition. She has already impressed the judges with her speaking, flare, beauty, and charisma. Being born and brought up in an environment where the girls are expected to settle down as soon as they cross age had constrained Sandy from competing at the pageant before but the same urge to do something more for herself brought her at the stage. “I want to empower those girls to not be afraid to put their happiness first and know that it’s OK to do so. I want to inspire them to go after what they want and live the life they dream of. I often look back and wonder what I could have been capable of if I had that kind of encouragement from a young age,” she stated.

Sara Winter is a competitive golfer who advocates for addiction awareness in Canada. Having her mom struggle with substance abuse growing up, she knows firsthand the effects it can have on families and loved ones, henceforth wants to continue shedding light on this delicate topic and to bring resources for people who need it. She also won the Group 1 head to head challenge as she was able to impress the judges with her advocacy. She shares her story aiming to break down barriers for women in sports and pageants.
