Golden’s Robin Johnston didn’t win the top prize at the Miss Universe Canada pageant but she couldn’t be happier with the adventure.

“The overall experience has been really positive. I’m really glad I did this,” she said.

After months of photo shoots, fundraiser planning and other preparations, Johnston flew to Toronto a few weeks ago for the final lead up toward the pageant itself.

“My experience in Toronto was incredible. It’s such a great city and everyone involved in the pageant was so kind. The pageant had us busy from day to night with rehearsals, photo shoots, videos, public appearances, and lunches and dinners at some of Toronto’s finest restaurants,” she said.

Despite all of the eyeballs focused on her during the pageant itself, and having to perform two separate dances, Johnston managed to keep her composure.

“The only time I felt nervous was about an hour before the preliminary show. My lips were trembling and I felt like I forgot all my choreography. All that nervousness went away once I was on stage,” she said.

Johnston recognizes that Golden had a lot to do with making her pageant experience what it was.

“The support from the community has been overwhelmingly positive. Golden is such a wonderful place and I’m so proud of my hometown. All of my sponsors really made it possible for me to have this life changing experience,” she said.

With the experience of the pageant now behind her, Johnston hopes to finally be able to relax.

“I really need to catch up on sleep,” she said.
