Hello, I am Melanie Paquin and I am proud to be your Miss Canada 2010. With this title, as I take office to show you the beauty of a person is represented not only his personality but also by the values that it inspires and its positive aspirations. We can all be beautiful in our own way by reversing our faults and quality over not being afraid of ridicule.
I live in Ottawa for 11 years but I am originally from Abitibi-Témiscamingue. In everyday life, I am community advocate with the male customers by Court because I believe that rehabilitation may be possible. In today’s society, prejudice is too prevalent towards people with a criminal record due to the image projected by the media, yet many people do not end up facing the judicial system. I also work part time in the field of restoration for the past 7 ½ years, which can be outgoing and able to socialize, what I can do in my workplace because I have to maintain a caregiver-client relationship . They are opposites but two trades that I value and I complement each other. For cons, I realized that I want to open my horizons and maybe get into the communications field.
In another vein, I am a passionate girl fashion is always on the lookout for the latest trends, particularly in accessories, shoes and cosmetics. My greatest asset is my authenticity and my joy. I’m the first to advocate that 24 hours in a day is enough to accomplish anything. I am also listening to others, generous and determined. My core values in life are love and family that I consider to be the core of a happy and fulfilled life. My hope long term is to build a happy family by following the example of my parents who love each other unconditionally and keep a job I love. Also, I am godmother Foundation Lorenzo Di-Fraga which helps children with muscular dystrophy. In short, here’s a quote I’ve changed my way but that describes me in my daily life: “Who is not worth a joke, not worth to have a genuine personality and accomplished.”Miss Canada’s experience has been one of the grandest of all my life and to reach this stage, I was elected as 1st runner-Miss Quebec 2007. I had entered this contest, firstly because it was not just a beauty contest, but a personality, attitude and most importantly, there was no parade bathing suit. The Miss Quebec had me allowed to grow and assume myself as a woman while developing confidence in me. So I wanted to continue this experience by participating in the Miss Canada 2010 last October. There are no words to describe what I lived for four days except: Wow. I experienced the star system in Quebec and the feeling of being on the red carpet that I could live without it. After much effort and patience, I realized a dream: to have a crown and earn it.So I hope to use my reign wisely and that I have given you the desire to participate in this great adventure.
