Originally from Sept-Iles, Quebec, Sasha is very proud to be part of rich Canadian heritage. Sasha chose Aviation as her career path. She believes that by visiting various countries with unique cultural heritage and living conditions is the most effective way to learn about cultural heritage, values and principles.

It also is the key element in understanding how all these people can live and harmoniously interact within the borders of the single country – Canada.

Sasha’s Core Principles are guided by determination and perseverance. She believes that achievement of every challenge is a function of inspiration, fueled by passion.

Her decision to be part of Miss Universe Canada is the best opportunity to demonstrate to younger generation of Canadians the importance of taking a fearless and ambitious approach to setting goals and finding the right mix of determination and courage in achieving them.

Sasha realizes the importance of giving back to the society by helping improve the lives and the living conditions of fellow Canadians. Sasha hopes that one day she will be able to lead a charity organization whose focus would be helping people to have a second chance in life. For all those that found them in the struggling stalemate, often, just a small push is enough to make the wheel turn again.

Languages spoken fluently (please include your native language if English is not your native language).

I speak English and French fluently.

What are your interests and what do you enjoy doing the most?

My interests include traveling, reading, as well as physical fitness.

List any special training you have had (music, art, drama, dance, etc.) 

I have taken acting classes.

In what sports, if any, have you participated?

Throughout my high school years, I was part of the basket-ball team. Although we were not technically the best team, we always had so much fun playing together as a team, and we always made the best of every situation.

Name one person, other than your parents, who has had the most influence on your life. Why? 

From such a young age I have always admired Barbara Walter’s motivation and strong ambitions, which has influenced me to pursue a field of studies in communications. She once said the best question you can ask an interviewee is why, and I strongly believe being curious and asking questions in life is an asset because certain things in life are not always evident, and therefore require additional efforts to uncover their true meaning.

What is your proudest personal accomplishment (other than participating in this pageant)? 

The saying “After every hurricane, comes a rainbow” is a motto I have stuck by. During the last year I have suffered difficult times, as many people have. I’ve learned that there are great things that come along after every difficult situation. Tough times happen in life, for you to grow into the person you need to become. I would definitely say that my proudest accomplishment would be becoming the woman I am today, by never fearing the unknown, by trusting and believing in myself, and by going after what I truly want in life, and never giving up.  Today, I would never let anything or anyone get in between of my dreams and aspirations. And the day that I realized this, and put my thoughts into actions, was the day I was truly proud of myself, and knew that I had fought the inner battle with myself, and was now ready to tackle with great strength and perseverance, whatever I sought after in life.

What is the most interesting or unique thing that has ever happened to you and/or what is the most interesting thing about you? 

I would say the most interesting thing about me is that I am a very determined individual. Nothing to me is unattainable in life all you need is the belief in yourself and the will to try. There is nothing I love more than a challenge in life, and no matter how high the stakes are, or the number of people that tell me to give up, it will only make me more eager and strong-minded to fight for what I want the most.

What is your career ambition and what are you doing or plan to do to accomplish that goal? 

My ultimate career ambition would be to inspire and be the voice of our younger generation.  Being very young, yet so mature, I can say that I have a lot of life experiences, both good and bad. With my stories, I want to help others surpass these difficult times, and strive for them to become whoever they want to be. I want to be a mentor, a role model, and build an organization that gives children a voice and help them overcome their self challenges. Whether it be body issues, self confidence issues, a lack of positive roles models in their life, I want to build an organization that brings hope back into these children’s lives, so they too can strive to inspire others by their success stories and build a greater future.

What would be your “dream job” in life?

My ultimate dream job is to become the “mother Theresa” of today’s generation. To be a motivational speaker for the children and be a voice and inspire others to become who they want to be. I want to inspire others and build hope. I want to work with hundreds of charity organizations to make this world a better place one step at a time. Working a 9-5 job would never be as re-warding for me then by helping others have a better life and seeing a smile in their face, because you’ve just made their life better. I’d want to be a missionary like wonder woman, traveling across the world, building homes, helping the needy, and saving our youth and making our society a greater place to live in.

Are you currently a student?

No, I have currently taken a leave of absence from school until summer 2012.

McGill University

Area of study:

Public Relations

Are you currently employed?

Yes.

If yes, what is your occupation?

I am a flight attendant, for Air Canada.

Describe where you were raised and what your childhood was like.

 I was raised in a small town called Sept-Iles, which is located in north eastern province of Quebec. Being raised in such a small town really molded my values, and definitely made me the person I am today. Being raised by two of the hardest working parents, they taught me that you have to work hard in life to get what you want, because no one will go out there to get it for you. I have always been a “go getter”, striving for excellence in life, and never giving up and my dreams. Being from a small town, I grew up and went to school with the same tight knit friends, from elementary all through graduation day. As a child, I always wanted to do everything I possibly could! I always had new ideas and visions, whether it be putting on a singing and dance show with my sister for my family, or re decorating my room every week, I was always so creative and would want to tackle a million things all at once. I would always dream big and aspire to be so many wonderful things in life. And now that I am older, I know that I can do and be whoever I chose to be, it’s all a matter of what you want, and how badly you want it. And nothing in life is un-attainable!

List any interesting or unusual jobs you may have had. 

The most interesting job I have had would definitely be the one I currently have as a flight attendant. I truly love what I do, and there is nothing more calming yet exciting then spending your days in the skies, above the clouds, 40 000 feet above the ground! I have travelled to the most exquisite and interesting places, from Sao Paulo, Shanghai, to Rome and Paris. I have been fortunate enough to visit these beautiful places and take a bit of each culture back to Canada with me.

List any volunteering you have done.

During the summer, I have been a part of a volunteering organization for multiple sclerosis. A group of flight attendants from across Canada came together to raise money by making a calendar where the profits went to this the MS foundation. I have recently undertaken a new challenge that I hold very dear to my heart, of being a volunteer for Montreal Children’s General Hospital.

What is your most unusual talent?

My most unusual talent would be that I believe that I am a good actress. Acting and improvisational skills are something that comes naturally to me.

Where is the most interesting place you have been?

The most interesting place I have visited would definitely be the Trevi Fountain in Rome.

What do you hope to be doing in ten years?

I definitely do not have a specific “plan” in life. I live every day as it was my own. I believe that having a life plan can sometimes set you back, and take away from living in the moment! If I want something I do it, if I don’t like something I change it! My only wish is that in 10years I am happy, and surrounded by the people in life that mean the most to me.
