Tecumseh Woman Wins Miss Canada Galaxy

The new Miss Galaxy Canada hails from Tecumseh.

Kaitlyn Baggio won the pageant last weekend in Toronto.

The 20-year-old participated in the 19 to 28-year-old division and says the pageant featured a number of categories including swimsuit, fashion wear, evening gown, interviews and appearances.

"Winning to me is just like a big dream come true," says Baggio.  "I've been doing Miss Tecumseh for the past three years.  I've done Miss Via Italia and I just love getting in the local pageants and all my friends and family have helped support me every pageant so it was like a good thing, a big thing actually to win it."

Baggio says the win was a surprise because at first she thought she placed second.

"They usually call the first runner up's name and I honestly thought she was just the winner because I heard her name so I was about to walk off and let her have her moment and then I realized I won," she says.  "I was just so surprised. It was amazing."   

Baggio will now represent Canada at the Miss Galaxy International Pageant in Orlando at the end of August.
