Brianna Lamirande is Miss Heartbeat Queen 2016!
My name is Brianna, I am 22 years old from Sudbury, ON, Canada.
I never thought I would get involved in pageantry as I was under the impression that pageants were only for the picture perfect girls. My first pageant was the Miss North Ontario Regional Canada pageant in 2015. I decided to join after a close friend participated and highly recommended the experience. To my surprise I ended up placing in the top 10, was a runner up for scholastic and a runner up for fundraising. I was also asked to move on to the Miss Universe Canada pageant, an honour I never thought I'd receive at my first pageant!
Outside of the pageant world I am an officer in the Canadian Armed Forces, working with a local Army Cadet unit where I inspire the youth in my community to become the leaders of tomorrow. I attend Fleming College and am taking the Fish and Wildlife program in hopes to pursue my career aspiration of becoming a conservation officer. I am very passionate about the environment and ensuring that people will be able to enjoy outdoor activities for a long time!
I've now competed in Four pageants and have won my latest, I am the reigning Miss Heartbeat Queen 2016. With this title I plan to work with the Heart and Stroke foundation to promote healthy lifestyle choices!
Pageantry goes hand in hand with my love for volunteering. Throughout my short time competing I have fallen in love with the opportunities provided to me to give back to the community. I can't wait to continue on in the Pageant World!!! <3
