The crowning of Miss Canada, Alyssa MacLeod, former Shrine child
The room was packed for the breakfast at the governors hotel as the Shriners of the Philae temple were present to celebrate the crowning of Miss Canada, Alyssa MacLeod, former Shrine child from Boularderie in Nova-Scotia.
Alyssa was born with a mild case of cerebral palsy, but with the help of the Shriners Hospital for Children Canada, where she was a patient for many years, she pursued university studies and graduated with a bachelor in science and french.
Alyssa hopes to give back to the Canada Shriners Hospital by becoming a doctor and being able to practice there, which she calls her second home.
Her Miss Canada platform focuses on empowering children with disabilities.
