Markham’s own official entrant in the Miss Universe Canada 2017 pageant, Victoria Deng, is out in the community drumming up support for her quest to be crowned later this year. The campaign to become the next Miss Universe Canada begins with good old-fashioned hard work in the community.
In addition to a full roster of public events, Deng, an Air Canada brand ambassador, is hosting a charity fashion show at Citizen at 522 King St. W in Toronto on August 24 to raise funds for Operation Smile.
Operation Smile benefits children with facial deformities. Miss Universe Canada will be crowned October 7.
