    Jelena Pejic - Miss Universe Canada 2010 Candidate

    Miss Universe Canada 2010 Official Contestant

    23
    Name: Jelena Pejic
    Age: 22
    Height: 5'10"
    Hometown: Kitchener, ON

    Jelena Pejic is a 22 year old Communication studies student at Wilfrid Laurier University in Waterloo. She aspires to work in the public relations field and hopefully own her own PR agency. Born in Sarajevo Bosnia, she had moved to Serbia at the age of 5 when the war started. In 1997 she came to Canada with her family.

    The misfortune of moving and having to adapt to different situations and surroundings have made her a chameleon. Jelena believes that the most successful people are not the ones that posses most knowledge, but the ones that adapt best to different situations. This does not mean that a person should not be self defined. Jelena has participated in many pageants and had the fortune of winning a few titles.

    In 2004 she was the official Miss Serbia and Montenegro which allowed her to compete in the 2004 Miss World pageant. She also competed in Miss Tourism Queen International 2005 that took place in China, and Miss Peace 2005 In Turkey; a title that she won and one that she was very proud of. She spent 2004-2007 traveling the world and having an opportunity to learn from, appreciate and embrace other cultures. With the title of Miss Serbia and Montenegro she participated in many fundraisers and charity events but the one she is most proud of is auctioning her crown and giving the money to the Children’s Village in Serbia. It helped improve the lives of children without parents and special needs.

    Jelena sees herself as a strong, enduring, and caring person and believes that there is a bigger plan even at the toughest of times. She owes her family a great deal for encouraging her to be true to herself and supporting her on the journey to reach her dreams.

    Jamie Molz - Miss Universe Canada 2010 Candidate

    Miss Universe Canada 2010 Official Contestant

    22
    Name: Jamie Molz
    Age: 20
    Height: 5'9"
    Hometown: Burnaby, BC

    Jamie Molz was born in the rocky mountain foothills town of Hinton, Alberta. Prior to attending high school in Devon, Alberta Jamie and her family moved several times due to her father’s work with locations ranging from Vancouver, British Columbia to Hagerstown, Maryland. The experience of moving around and traveling with her parents not only sparked her love of travel but taught her to respect and value other cultures and people.

    Jamie’s natural leadership skills and desire to lead together with her belief in the Walt Disney quote “All of our dreams can come true if we have the courage to pursue them” has resulted in her not only being voted as a role model by her peers, but after completing her schooling she opened and currently runs SOL Events; a premier Wedding and Event planning company. Being able to own her own company gives Jamie a chance to express her creative side, something that she inevitably inherited from her parents.

    She is also working to establish an anti-bullying foundation dedicated to the public awareness and education of bullying in our society. Jamie feels that there is so much more to be done and knows that Canada can set the standard against bullying. When she’s not running her business or working on her foundation she enjoys spending time outdoors, walking her dog or lying on the beach.
