CBC.ca – Siera Bearchell was feeling a mix of excitement and relief after being crowned Miss Universe Canada in Toronto over the weekend.

“I knew coming into the competition that I had a good chance at winning, but you never know what can happen. I just kept telling myself to be myself, enjoy the moment on stage,” said Bearchell.

Bearchell just completed her second year of law school at the University of Saskatchewan. She’s also an entrepreneur, having launched her own brand of clothing, Watered Down Apparel.

She said that with every purchase, 30 days of clean drinking water is provided for people facing a lack of clean water. She’s partnered with the Water Is Life organization in order to make that happen. Bearchell said the idea came from a trip to Kenya, where she helped build a school for children.
