Hope for the Sold sends out a HUGE congratulations to Tara Teng for winning the title of Miss World Canada 2012! Tara has worked so hard for this – and not because she seeks glory for herself but because she believes that this platform can empower her to empower others. Tara, thank you for your heart for justice, for your never ending energy to fight on behalf of human trafficking victims, for your willingness to declare war on exploitation, for your convictions about true beauty, and for your humility. Your joy bursts out of you on that stage and we celebrate with you!
As Miss World Canada, Tara will be representing Canada at the Miss World Pageant in Inner Mongolia this summer. I will be sure to post updates. For those of you who have not been acquainted with this beautiful friend of mine, you can read my interview with Tara Teng (when she held the title of Miss BC) and learn about her journey with Miss World Canada here.
There are many of you who supported Tara through your votes and by helping her raise funds for Variety Children’s Charity, and a BIG thank you goes out to all of you as well! She could not have done this without you. I know Tara will not waste this opportunity to do some serious good in the world, and it is so exciting for us to stand behind her as a community of love and support.
Great job to all the ladies who competed in this pageant – I hope that you will continue the great things you are doing in the world to help others!
