My platform is all about spreading acceptance and inclusion amongst our Canadian Community. We need to empower diversity and bolden our Canadian values by ridding discrimination against a person’s race, ethnicity, culture, physical abilities, gender, beliefs and love interests.

This segregation can take a significant toll on an individual’s mental health. Having been discriminated against for my ethnicity I understand how impactful the struggle is towards a teenager’s well-being.

I have been and will continue to spread awareness about the issue while providing help and resources to those who are struggling with discrimination. Hatred and hostility will simply blind us from the astonishing power that diversity holds. We need to accept one another for our differences instead of discriminating over things we cannot control.

Lots of Love,

Melika Mojaveri, Miss Teenage Ottawa 2021 🙂
