For those of you who have regularly been following this blog, you’ve seen me write before about Tara Teng, Miss World Canada 2012. She is currently representing Canada at the Miss World Pageant in China, and needs our help to advance to the semi-finals.
Before I go on, you may be wondering why I am promoting a “beauty queen” on a blog about sex trafficking. I met Tara when she was still Miss BC, and to be honest was a little skeptical that she would be as passionate about fighting trafficking as she claimed. Then I met her, and I was blown out of the water.
Don’t believe me? Check out my interview with Tara, as well as some of her accomplishments to combat human trafficking. It becomes clear very quickly that her passion is justice and her platform is beauty. Her titles have already opened up crazy opportunities to fight trafficking all over the world.
The Miss World Pageant is literally the next platform for Tara. She truly embodies the phrase “beauty with a purpose,” and takes her stewardship extremely seriously. She is one of the world’s greatest champions for justice, and we get to be part of helping her extend that influence.
At this point in the competition (which runs from July 18 to August 18), we can help Tara get to the semi-finals by liking the Miss World Canada 2012 facebook page, commenting on it, and sharing Tara’s posts. The bonus is that if you follow her journey, you will get to see this girl’s heart of gold. She regularly posts pictures and videos.
