Miss Universe Canada 2012 - National Finalist

Suzette Hernandez

Age: 26 | Height: 5’9″
Hometown: Vancouver. BC

Suzette is a ramp model, an avid traveler and a fulltime commerce student.  She is a health advocate who loves reading, singing, playing sports and volunteering in her community.  Growing up in Vancouver, she speaks fluent English, Tagalog and a bit of French.  Living, in her terms, is defined by experiencing what the world offers.

True to her philosophy, she has travelled all over North America, Europe, the Caribbean and Asia.  She loves experiencing other cultures and hopes to be able to taste all the wonderful delicacies of traditional cuisines around the world.

Having modeled for seven years, she has grazed many runway shows, magazines, and has even been featured in a commercial as well as several TV shows.  When asked about what drives her, she proudly talks about her father.

Her dad’s courageous battle with cancer has been a source of strength for this little lady.  In an interview she once said,  “As in Oprah Winfrey’s words, ‘he allowed me to see that not even the sky is the limit.’”

The pain of her loss fuels her hunger for success and has made her a very multifaceted woman.  Presently, she is pursuing her Degree in Marketing, and dedicates her spare time to her family and volunteer work—planning and organizing fundraisers to help those in need.  She has been a member of the non-profit organization called the Batangas Club of British Columbia since 2004, fundraising to sponsor children with no means to pursue an education.

Suzette Hernandez believes that anything is possible through hard work, perseverance and determination.  She hopes to incorporate the knowledge she has gained from her traveling adventures to best represent Canada’s distinct cultural mosaic as the next Miss Universe Canada 2012.
