A young lady kababayan is set to represent Manitoba to the 2019 Canada Galaxy Pageant. It is a pageant open to all girls and young women aged 9 and above and subdivided into 6 divisions according to the contestants’ age group. They are a system that’s inclusive to women and do not have restriction based on age, size, height, marital status or that they’re mothers. The objective of the pageant is to tap intelligent, ambitious, personable and progressive women who make a difference in the community through volunteerism and service.
The pageant is taking place on April 26-28, 2019 in Mississauga, ON with Manitoba being represented by 12-year old Katrina Czarina Salazar in the Junior Ms. Galaxy division.
Karina or KC as she is fondly called, may not be a new face to some as she has been very active both in school and community since her family moved in Winnipeg in 2015.
KC won the Second Princess title in the Manitoba Filipino Street Festival’s 2016 Queen Bulilit. She was the Best in Talent during 2017 Shining Star Fashion Show. She is also a member of Winnipeg Sikaran Arnis Academy where she won several medals. She was also a finalist for the first-ever Winnipeg Kid Mayor ‘18.
KC graduated grade 6 with honours and awards such as Leadership Award from MLA of Logan in 2018, Outstanding Grade 6 Student, Winnipeg Foundation Scholarship and Leadership Award from CanU.
Although her name symbolizes toughness, KC is known for being loving, charming and funny.
If KC wins Canada Galaxy Pageants, she will represent the country and compete at the Galaxy International Pageant happening in Orlando, Florida.
Manitoba will also be represented by Ariele Lopuck in the Miss Teen Galaxy division.
