MISS UNIVERSE CANADA CONTESTANT - Courtney Hewalo

Name: Courtney Hewalo

Age: 20 | Height: 5’8″ | Montmartre, SK

Courtney was born and raised in small town Saskatchewan. She now lives in Saskatoon where she attends the University of Saskatchewan. Courtney is pursuing a bachelor of science majoring in anatomy and cell biology as she hopes to be admitted to the College of Medicine in the near future.

She has become a member of the Greystone Scholars Society and the Golden Key Honors Society as a result of her academic achievement. She is also a member of the anatomy and cell biology student society. Courtney’s aspiration is to become a pediatrician, which will allow her to combine her love of children, her ambition to change people’s lives, and her excellence in academics into a career.

Courtney has always been a strong part of her community through sports, school, and volunteering. Her love of sports has led her to excel in activities such as dance, volleyball, baseball, badminton, track & field and snowboarding. She has volunteered with The Children’s Wish Foundation, Regina General Hospital, her local dance club, and within her high school.

She is also a certified lifeguard who spent a number of summers running her hometown swimming pool. This job taught her valuable skills that she will use throughout her life which allows her to be the positive role model she feels all children need. In addition, Courtney seizes the opportunity to model whenever it arises. When Courtney is not playing sports, modeling, or volunteering, she loves to spend time at her family’s cabin sitting in the sun, relaxing.

Courtney believes that life is full of setbacks, but success is determined by how you handle those setbacks. This philosophy is what has led her to become a part of the Student Wellness Initiative Toward Community Health (SWITCH). SWITCH is a student run inter professional clinic servicing the core neighborhoods of Saskatoon.

As a part of SWITCH, Courtney gets to help people who have faced more setbacks in life than any person should have to, and has the chance to help them to achieve some sort of success in their lives. She is also a part of the executive board that governs the activities of SWITCH. Courtney feels that anyone can make a difference in the world if they truly want to. She believes that helping even one person betters the world in an extraordinary way.
