For Sascia Sahota, it was her unique background that influenced her to enter this years Miss BC Pageant. Sahota’s goal at the July 1st showcase is to represent diversity and celebrate people’s differences.

“I’ve had times in my life where I’ve faced great adversity,” explained Sahota. “Both as a woman and as a woman of colour, but I have pushed myself to maintain my integrity, learn from my mistakes and better myself and strive to inspire others around me to do the same.”

The Langley resident comes from Danish and Bermudian descent and is a contestant in the Mrs. BC category which is open only to married women.

Sahota’s athletic upbringing has led her to promote an active lifestyle while a career in the modelling and film industry has caused her to encourage others, stay positive, and to pursue their dreams.

“My passion is to encourage youth and inspire them to pursue their dreams, no matter how small or big,” Sahota said. “I believe that when you set your mind upon a goal, you can and will achieve it!”

Today, Sahota works with her husband Ryan in communications at Pacific Charted Advisors and will compete in the Mrs. BC Pageant for the first time.

“I feel honoured to be a part of Mrs. BC because their values align with my own. I celebrate women and girls from all backgrounds. Beauty comes in all shapes and sizes, and it starts from within,” Sahota said.

The annual pageant partners with the Canadian Cancer Society to help raise funds for their “Cops for Cancer” program with the RCMP.
