Why Pageants
Why pageants?
Misconceptions about pageantry are wide-reaching. Modern pageants are often scholarship opportunities that focus on empowering women by promoting inner beauty, ambition, intelligence, and philanthropy.

Pageants are won in the interview room. Private interviews often determine the finalists, while the on-stage finale is typically a tie-breaker in the search for a strong role model and spokesperson for the organization.

Advocating for a worthy cause, community service involvement, and personal growth are key. Pageantry is also a great source of sisterhood, as pageant sisters tend to remain lifelong friends.

✧ Best in 20s Award
✧ Compassion Award
✧ Face of the Americas Award

She was crowned the 1st runner up to Mrs. Canada Globe during the pageant finale.

When Patricia Celan entered the Miss BC pageant after her uncle Valentin died of cancer, she began extensive fundraising efforts for the cancer charity portion of the pageant. This involved selling the designer bags that she inherited from her uncle, organizing large garage sales with products donated by community members, and online fundraising.

On July 1, 2013, she was crowned Miss Charity BC by Monte Durham of "Say Yes to the Dress Atlanta". She followed her crowning with a surprise; she had promised donors that if she was the top fundraiser for the year, she would shave her head on stage in solidarity with those struggling with cancer. She removed the crown and shaved her head.

While she was having her head shaved, further donations were collected from the audience. In total across her various fundraising efforts, she had fundraised over $10,000 for cancer charities - half of the entire Miss BC pageant fundraising of $20,000 that year. Her headshave made local and international news, such as Yahoo Trending (US) and Daily Mail (UK).

During her titleholder year, she was involved in multiple community and charity events with a team of other titleholders, who remained good friends after their reigning year came to an end.
