But it’s not your everyday leave of absence. The 23-year-old Metis from Moose Jaw has completed two years of law school at the University of Saskatchewan. But Bearchell now plans to take a year off of her studies in order to fulfill her responsibilities of being Miss Universe Canada.
Bearchell, Métis, won the pageant title in mid-June in Toronto, beating out 63 other entrants. Besides representing the country at various events throughout Canada and the world during the upcoming year, Bearchell has also qualified to compete at the Miss Universe competition.
