Miss Global 2014 Ela Mino - Canada

Miss Global Beauty Pageant Ela Mino Winner Titleholder Universe World

On December 19th 2014 I had the honor of becoming the second Canadian woman to win the Miss Global pageant. As a first-generation Canadian, I feel blessed and humbled to have won this prestigious title wearing the name of my country. I am also very proud of my Albanian heritage, where I have learned many of the values that have made me the young woman that I am today. My experiences as a Canadian-Albanian woman have made me truly grateful to be apart of an organization that celebrates diversity among women. The Miss Global Organization embraces the uniqueness of each of its competitors and allows each girl to showcase what they are truly passionate about. I know that the women I shared my experience with have inspired me, and the friendships I have made will always hold a special place in my heart.

My previous experiences as Miss Calgary 2012 and a finalist at Miss Universe Canada have allowed me to grow with more compassion and confidence than I could have ever imagined. I feel privileged to have been placed in a role where I have the ability to impact thousands of lives all over the world. Not everyone shares the same walk in life and I know that mine has been a rather fortunate one. I have clean drinking water, a right to an education and I am not limited in opportunity as a result of my gender.

As the newly crowned Miss Global, I want to contribute to worthwhile causes and serve as a leader, creating a brighter future for those in need. I am looking forward to spending my year as an ambassador for international charitable organizations and raising awareness for various causes.

I’d like to thank my family for their tremendous support, My beautiful friend Adwoah Yamoah for guiding me through various competitions, Emily Kiss for setting an incredible example for me and welcoming me into the Miss Global family, and finally the Miss Global Organization for this once in a lifetime opportunity. I will strive to represent the Organization with pride, elegance and grace.
