Family is important to Patricia, who had a great childhood with both of her parents. Every night she would go for walks with her father and talk about the importance of working hard and living your dreams as best as you can; and treating people the way you want to be treated.  She learned respect at a young age.  She volunteered at the food bank and provided assistance where needed for family, friends, neighbors or community.   At this stage of her life, she wants to further that cause. She believes that if she attends the Miss Universe Canada pageant, she can share her love and kindness towards the world.  She  finds it was empowering and gives her a voice.   Patricia strongly believes that any goal can be reached, so she has decided to set a lofty goal for herself.   With some national and international pageant experience in her pocket, she will strive further with this pageant.
