- I recently had the opportunity to represent Canada in the Reinado del Café pageant in Manizales, Colombia. It was an amazing experience visiting Colombia and meeting other delegates from all over the world. I was not expecting to win the crown but I did, and I felt very honored to be awarded such a title as well as to be representing Canada.

• A motto that has served you as inspiration.
