Carat Cheung (Miss Chinese Vancouver 2009 1st Runner Up). We went to the same high school and it is exciting to see the progress of her career as it is still developing.

My knowledge of Chinese culture and language.
Reasons for joining the Pageant:
To experience a different realm outside my comfort zone.
What is the most beautiful object or incident in the world:
The unconditional love that a dog has for their owner and the amount of excitement in them when they see their best friend come home through the doors!
Who is your female role model and why:
My cousin is an inspiration to me because she is the perfect combination of success, humility, athleticism, and tops it off with a great sense of humor.
Why do you think you will excel at this Pageant and be crowned Miss Chinese Vancouver:
I feel I have the most to learn from the Pageant experience and therefore I also bring a lot of my own diverse experience and abilities that makes me unique.
If you won this contest, how, as Miss Chinese Vancouver, would you contribute to society and the world:
Growing up I was not able to afford dance lessons or go far with piano but I was always able to be involved with sports at school, which has followed me into adulthood. I hope to use this platform to encourage young females to explore sports and hopefully find one or more to fall in love with because I believe in its positive effects on psychosocial development, community involvement, and health and fitness.
