錢寓凡 Elaine Qian

錢寓凡 (Elaine Qian) 2001年來加拿大唸書,年紀輕輕的她求知欲很強,已經考取了書法十級證書,書法、手風琴等更是信手拈來,手風琴更成為去年 (2019年) 參選時才藝表演的好拍檔。

獲得季軍的Elaine也非常感謝提名她參選的良師益友 — 在加拿大的日本老師及跳舞老師,希望Elaine能夠在過程當中挑戰自己,為夢想奮鬥。同時,她認為參加華裔小姐為她打開了一扇新的門,所認識的人內心也很美,特別是共同努力的姐妹們,無私的表現,令她十分感動。

對語言有很大的興趣,能操多種語言,包括英語、粵語、國語、法語、日本語、上海話等。她相信透過語言的認識,可以進一步了解不同地區的文化。

作為過來人,Elaine鼓勵女孩們參賽,為自己追夢,擁抱充滿挑戰的精彩旅途,來日可期。

Elaine Qian came to Canada to study in 2001. Growing up, she always had an inquisitive nature. Calligraphy (a hobby that she got a tenth-grade certificate in) and accordion have been her go-to in last year’s talent performance on stage.

As the 2019 Miss Chinese Toronto Pageant 2nd Runner-Up, Elaine expressed immense gratitude to the mentor and friend who nominated her and pushed her to participate in the Pageant: her Japanese and dance teacher. She hoped Elaine could challenge herself and also take a shot at fulfilling her dreams. Participating in the Pageant opened a new door for Elaine, with challenges and experiences came life-long friendships and sisters.

Elaine has always had a great interest in language and can speak multiple languages, including English, Cantonese, Mandarin, French, Japanese, Shanghainese, etc. She believes that through the understanding of languages, one can further understand different cultures.

As someone who's been through it all, Elaine encourages girls to take that leap, to pursue your dreams and to embrace a challenge that will lead to an exciting journey ahead.
