Christina Logan is a 24-year-old Toronto resident who grew up in Georgina, Ontario. She strives to live an active lifestyle filled with creativity, adventure and friendships. While pursuing a career as a professional dancer, Christina is currently employed as a sales associate at Fresh Home and Garden.
Christina is devoted to promoting the Arts in Canada. As an engaged patron of the Toronto Arts community, she volunteers in local dance organizations and contributes monetarily to dance start-ups. Recognizing a shortfall in the industry, Christina advocates for funding the Arts by encouraging voters to ensure the community’s needs are met at all levels of government. She attended a government-sponsored specialized arts high school, and then completed her Honors Bachelor of Fine Arts in Performance Dance at York University. These opportunities allowed Christina to study under Toronto’s leading dance professionals, and offered extensive performance opportunities. Establishing herself as a choreographer, her pieces were praised by audiences and professionals alike. She was a member of the York Dance Ensemble, and participated in shows across the Toronto area. During her third year of University, she completed a year abroad at Towson University in Baltimore, Maryland, one of the top dance programs in the USA. During her tenure, she was offered a role in a dance short film, “It Goes Without Saying,” which has been featured at the California ISFF, winning Best Experimental Short, and more recently was accepted to the Paris Short Film Festival.
Christina is an avid independent world traveler who recently backpacked for eight months, cherishing the sights and amazing cultures this world has to offer. This adventure taught her to be independent, self-sufficient and curious. Traveling made the concept of environmental conservation and one’s environmental footprint important to Christina. In every job she holds, she has instated recycling programs which she would like to develop further.
Pageants have assisted Christina to develop personally and professionally. During her initial competition as a teenager, she discovered that a title was more than a crown. Fundraising for passion projects and advocating for bullying legislation made her a leader in her community. This encouraged her to pursue other pageants to expand her outreach and sponsorships, at one point representing ONEnergy – a Toronto-based company dedicated to providing corporations with renewable energy resources. Their initiative was a lesson in the importance of protecting our environment and living greener. Most recently, she participated in a pageant in China, where she improved her modeling skills, experienced the fascinating Chinese and Inner Mongolian cultures, and made wonderful life-long friendships.
Christina believes in education, awareness, and compassion. She continually challenges herself by staying on top of current events, and gets involved locally. In her youth, Christina volunteered at her church, and was a volunteer dance instructor. Faith allowed her to develop a deep love for service, and she became a leader at a Christian camp, volunteering her summers for three years. Mini-Yo-We was where she learned to guide young women from all walks of life, and to encourage kindness, empathy and service in youth. While dealing with her own past abuse, she found that connecting with children helped heal her trauma. This made Christina a feminist, speaking out for equality and women’s rights, while advocating for victims. Christina strives to live a healthy, pure lifestyle, respecting her body through nutrition and fitness and her soul through strong moral values and convictions. Miss Universe Canada 2019 is a platform where Christina hopes to share her life experience and her talents, to further engage in community service in Canada and abroad. Christina feels blessed and humbled to represent her family and community on the Miss Universe Canada stage.
