The 2013 delegates showcased their devotion and eagerness to be great leaders by raising over $64,000 for their partner Variety – the Children’s Charity.
No one can deny the contestants’ passion and energy,said Chu,
I had the privilege working with these talented young ladies for 9 days!! These girls truly worked hard and came together as a team and supported one another that was truly amazing – all while knowing only one would take away the crown.
And that special young woman was Camille Munro. Through all the photo shoots, rehearsals, sponsor events and overall long days, Munro’s consistency stood out as star to the team. This star quality was obviously shone through to the judges who crowned her Miss World Canada 2013.
Chu went on to say,
I’m so proud of the ladies and wish them all the best of luck with which ever path they take. Congratulation Camille!!! We know you will make Canada proud.
