Tessa Johnston is 22 years old and of the Italian descent. She was born and raised in the very diverse city of Windsor, Ontario, which has greatly impacted Tessa’s passion to learn and experience other cultures.
Tessa completed two years at the University of Windsor finishing with a minor in Spanish, and is now pursuing the career of Real Estate.
Tessa’s greatest passion in life is volunteering and giving back not only to her community in Windsor, but also around the world in third world countries. She has volunteered for over 8 charities in Windsor, and has led 4 international volunteer trips overseas to Latin and South America. On these trips Tessa’s eyes were opened to the conditions and lives of those in third world countries, and this pushed her to help as much as she could. On these trips Tessa led and helped to build 4 schools and housing for teachers to increase the access to education for children in poverty. She also learned to live with more compassion, generosity, and happiness.
Tessa is very active in the fitness industry and includes fitness workouts into her every day life. As a registered yoga teacher Tessa also gives back by volunteering with a local organization in Windsor to teach yoga to young girls at risk for losing fitness or do not have the funds to do so. She can also be found helping people stretch in classes, or before her workouts at her local Crossfit gym which she attends every day.
Tessa’s passion for pageants began when she was 16 and competed for the first time in Miss Teen Ontario. Although she did not place this did not stop her and she has since placed top 10 at Miss Globe Canada, 1st runner up at Miss Via Italia, and top 5 at Miss Universe Canada Western Ontario.
Tessa is described as a strong leader who exhibits an open mind and will always put her best effort forward. She strives to live a well-balanced life between work, fitness, family, and giving back.
