Hi everyone! My name is Ysabelle, the current Miss Vancouver World 2020 and a Miss World Canada finalist.
My advocacy lies in food allergy awareness as I am severely allergic to peanuts/tree nuts, oral allergy syndrome to fruit and the cold (literally)! Since the age of three, when I was first diagnosed with food allergies, I have always wanted to advocate for it but never knew how. Miss World Canada has given me the chance to actively share awareness through my reign as a beauty queen and reach out to many communities of people living with food allergies.
I have collaborated with Kiligraphy Co. and #risingyouth to create a series of button pins that depicted the most common food allergies. All the proceeds will go towards research in oral immunotherapy (OIT for BC) and the Children’s Wish Foundation.
I am hoping that these items will help spread awareness about food allergies. Currently, 2.5 million Canadians live with food allergies, and 1 in 2 Canadians know someone with a severe food allergy.
If you know someone with a food allergy or have a food allergy yourself, please take a look at these pins! Thank you for all the support, and don’t forget to like, share and repost!
