The Miss World Canada pageant happens this Sunday (May 13), and contestant Ashley Callingbull of the Enoch Cree nation in Alberta has her eyes on the prize. Yesterday afternoon, she posted the following on her Facebook fan page:
At the airport heading to Vancouver for the Miss World Canada Competition! For the first day there will be a press conference tonight for all the delegates. A huge thank you to my sponsors and everyone that has helped me along this journey. :D
Ashley will likely keep everyone posted on her Facebook and Twitter pages, so if you're an Ashley fan we recommend checking them often; she could also use your help. All 32 Miss World Canada contestants are also in the running for the People's Choice award, and there are two ways you can vote: At the official Miss World Canada site, and on the Miss World Canada Facebook page.
Here's some more positive thinking from Ashley's Facebook page, as well as her video statement explaining why she should win. Convincing stuff.
This is the 2nd time I dreamt I won Miss World. It was such a good feeling! Today I got my swimsuit competition outfit, my heels for both my swimsuit and evening gown.. I tried everything on.... and I believe I'm ready to go! My body has transformed from training so hard. I am in it to win it! Like my trainer says "competition mode" :)
