3rd place

Group Seven

Gayathri Wijesinghe

I am an egalitarian, chocolatier,model,mental illness advocate and eye opener.

Why would you like to win?

If i saw a southasian woman in such an acclaimed magazine as a teen, it would have helped me overcome my own struggles trying to feel secure. I would love all races to see me and think, wow the world is becoming a more safeplace.

What would you do with the money if you win?

I’ll rent a pop up shop and throw chocolate events where some proceeds would go to A Vancouver local charity helping those in Vancouver and Sri Lanka.
