Miss Canada Siera Bearchell inspires women with body positive story

We already love her.


 

(SPOT.ph) The stunning Miss Universe contestants had everyone talking after they strut their stuff in the Swimsuit Competition. However, there's one particular candidate who's making waves in an awesome and positive way.

 

Miss Canada Siera Bearchell, a 23-year-old law student and entrepreneur, took to social media to talk about her struggle with weight. She captioned a photo of herself during the Swimsuit Competition, saying, "I am not as lean as I was when I was 16, 20, or even last year, but I am more confident, capable, wise, humble, and passionate than ever before."

 

I was recently asked, "What happened to you? Why have you gained weight? You are losing points" This was a reference to my body of course. While I am first to say I am not as lean as I was when I was 16, 20, or even last year, but I am more confident, capable, wise, humble and passionate than ever before. ????????As soon as I started to love who I was rather than always trying to fit what I thought society wanted me to be, I gained a whole new side of life. This is the side I am trying to bring to the @missuniverse competition. The side of life that is so rare to find: self-worth and self-love. We always focus on the things we wish we could change rather than loving everything we are. #missuniverse #bodydiversity #IMG

She continued, "As soon as I started to love who I was rather than always trying to fit what I thought society wanted me to be, I gained a whole new side of life. This is the side I am trying to bring to the [Miss Universe] competition."

 

Bearchell is currently in Baguio City with other fellow contestants; meanwhile, other candidates are en route to Batangas. The final coronation event is slated for January 30.
