The Drumheller Mail - - CLASSIFIEDS - Pa­trick Ko­lafa

A Drumheller woman has re­ceived the ti­tle Miss Star­land, and is on the way to Miss World Canada this sum­mer.

The Mail brought read­ers the story of Michelle Shar­run. She was ac­cepted to com­pete in a re­gional com­pe­ti­tion of the Miss World pageant in Cal­gary. She said it was an in­cred­i­ble ex­pe­ri­ence, and she came home Miss Star­land. “This means I go to na­tion­als for a week in July,” she said. She says the ex­pe­ri­ence in Cal­gary was like a boot camp, and in just a few short days, they were pageant ready, and helped to build their con­fi­dence.

“It taught us to love our­selves, no mat­ter what size we are some of it was nerve wrack­ing, but you re­al­ize that you are all there to make a dif­fer­ence, and that’s what you are there for,” she said.

In the com­pe­ti­tion, they are judged on an in­ter­view, a swim­suit, pho­to­genic, and for­mal gown. They were all also part of an open­ing group dance num­ber for the com­pe­ti­tion.

From the re­gional con­test, Shar­run was one of eight se­lected to the Miss World Canada Com­pe­ti­tion on July 16-23. This con­test se­lects the Cana­dian rep­re­sen­ta­tive for the in­ter­na­tional Miss World com­pe­ti­tion.

While it is a great ac­com­plish­ment just to make it this far, Shar­run is ded­i­cated to hav­ing a good show­ing at the com­pe­ti­tion. She is work­ing at get­ting more com­fort­able in front of a cam­era and other skills that she wants to im­prove to be a suc­cess at the next level.
