Black Press Media is a proud partner of the Miss BC pageant, with this year’s event taking place June 29 – July 1 in Fort Langley.

Submitted by Alexis E. from Surrey

I am joining Miss BC to build up my confidence. I am impressed with the Miss BC program in developing leadership in women. I know the opportunity will help me deepen and build my skills as a leader. I have a unique lifestyle since I have a double whammy. I was born with cerebral palsy and gender dysphoria. These are unique to have both. Cerebral palsy has impacted my language and speech. Gender dysphoria impacts my lifestyle as I feel I was born a wrong gender. These will not stop me keep going in my life. A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step. This inspires me to keep it up. I can do anything one step at a time.
