Alicia Angus was born and raised in the small town of Winchester Ontario, who is now living in the big city of Toronto, pursuing her dreams.
Alicia graduated from high school with the gold medal for highest academic grades. She began her academic journey in the Nursing program at Saint Lawrence College in Kingston, Ontario. Then she was accepted into the Communication and Sociology program at Carleton University. Once she completed her schooling her goal was to move to Toronto to become the strong independent, hard working woman she is today.
This past year she began her career path as a Medical Coordinator and assistant to surgeries at the Toronto Foot Clinic. She absolutely loves her job and being able to help new patients every single day.
Alicia is a part-time model, working with Ottawa & Montreal in high fashion runway and print jobs. She began her Pageant journey at Miss Teen Canada when she was 17, and since then has had the honor of represented Canada at multiple international pageants, she has placed top 10 and top 5 multiple times while winning best swimsuit body and the overall title of Miss World Perfect 2016.
She has had the privilege of bringing voice to two of her platforms, Canadian Cancer Association and Domestic Violence. She has spoken on stage in front of over 20,000 people about these issues, while also speaking to other victims and survivors of Domestic violence. Alicia has personally been a victim and survivor of emotional and physical abuse, and she now lives by the motto ‘Your Scars are Your Strengths’. Alicia wants to give voice to all these men and women around the world that you are not alone, and it will be okay. There is always a light at the end of the tunnel.
Alicia greatest mentors and supporters throughout her life and her struggles are her parents and her family. Her mother was diagnosed with cervical Cancer back in 2008, she is now cancer free and is the definition of strength and selflessness. Her mom never took a single day for granted and that is something Alicia embodies each day.
Alicia’s family also recently lost a grandmother and an aunt to Cancer. These three women have instilled so many amazing qualities that she wants to share with the world. Staying humble, loving yourself, being strong, seeing the best in everyday even if you must look a little harder sometimes, and most importantly cherishing every moment you have with the people you love and the memories you make.
Alicia believes that her journey and experiences throughout her life has given her the empowering stories and values that make her ready to represent Canada at Miss Universe pageant.
