The last few weeks have been a whirlwind of photos and media interviews for University of Regina alumna Camille Munro. Earlier this month, the recent Human Justice graduate was crowned Miss World Canada, and will now move on to compete in the Miss World Pageant in Jakarta, Indonesia in September. The prestigious Miss World Pageant features contestants from 120 countries, and is one of the most popular pageants in the world.

Munro, who has long been involved in various social and charitable causes, says she feels privileged to wear the Miss World Canada crown. ‘Miss World Canada is a woman who finds joy in being of service to her community and working with those who can implement positive changes in a community’, she says. ‘To me, Miss World Canada is a humanitarian who is always striving to be the best she can be for others’.

Munro was chosen the winner among 34 other accomplished competitors from all over the country. She will have a very busy summer ahead, undertaking numerous official events and speaking engagements across Canada, and of course, preparing for the Miss World Pageant in the Fall. ‘I’m so excited about the Miss World competition’, she says. ‘It will be an opportunity to meet women from all around the world – women who I might not otherwise have had the opportunity to meet. I will be representing Canada and I hope I can make Canadians proud’.

Building on her undergraduate studies and on her passion for social justice, Munro says she plans to pursue a law degree in the near future. And regardless of what happens at the Miss World competition in September, she says her role as Miss World Canada has already helped to shape the course of her personal and professional life. ‘I am proud to say I am a role model for many young women’, she says. ‘And I wish to leave them the best possible image of what it means to be a good person and a positive figure in your community’.
