Indian-origin girl wins Miss Teen Canada pageant

Toronto: An Indian-origin teenager has won the “Miss Teen Canada Petite Globe 2015” pageant held in Toronto recently, a media report said.

Arshpreet Chahal, 15, of Vancouver was crowned champion at the national finals held at the Richmond Hill Centre of Performing Arts in Toronto on August 22, the Voice Online reported.

Seventy girls contested in the pageant that was held in Toronto from August 12 to 23.

Prior to the national finals, the contestants took part in many promotional activities.

The Class 9 student at Vancouver’s John Oliver Secondary School was chosen a national finalist in December last year.

Arshpreet said that winning the title was not easy. “It required hard work and maximum effort,” she was quoted as saying.

“Her favourite subject is English. She plans on pursuing her dream of being a lawyer and she loves animals,” the official website of the pageant was quoted as saying.

“She plays basketball, soccer, and field hockey and is working as a freelance model. Her hobbies include reading, writing and travelling,” the website added.
