Back in the Hunter’s Bay Radio studio, I had the honour of interviewing
Ciara Thompson and her mom Heather. Ciara shared her wonderful
and difficult journey; from anxiety, depression and being bullied to being
crowned Miss Canada 2017! She truly shows us how far you can come!
I asked Ciara to share her most important message:
My most important message is to follow through with your goals, little goals,
and make a game plan as to how you can accomplish them. It will help you
grow as a person. I think that’s pretty much what life is about—becoming the best version of yourself. Ultimately you will create a chain reaction and you’ll
be able to create a brighter future.
I feel compelled to add: You are often capable of so much more than
you ever dreamed! You didn’t, for one minute, dream of being Miss Canada?
Not even for a second! You struggled and you had a hard time, but at age 24
you started entering pageants and… When at 25, You won! It's an Incredible
story, seriously! I am just so proud of Ciara. And sometimes I’m sure people
havean impression of beauty pageant contestants and their goals of
“World Peace”like in the movie, “Miss Congeniality".
I asked Ciara what she is passionate about and she shared her goals:
I am so passionate about helping people, specifically those who
are homeless. I think they are kind of looked over and that’s where I’d like
to hone in and really make a change.
This young woman is so lovely (and so is her supportive mom!)
and I will support her in any way I can.
Ciara is amazing, inspiring and shows that you can accomplish almost anything.
From bullied to Miss Canada 2017.

Wow! I don’t think I could pull that off,
but if that is your goal… GO FOR IT!
What do you dream of?
