This year’s Brampton Flower City parade will always be memorable for Chantal Keshwah.

 

Keshwah, 25, was named Miss Brampton Flower City 2014 following the annual parade, where she represented Brampton with Mayor Susan Fennell and other dignitaries.

 

Keshwah currently attends McMaster University, while working as a case manager. She is a registered nurse at the Brampton Civic Hospital, specializing in mental health and addictions. Her proud parents, John and Sandra Keshwah, hail from Trinidad & Tobago.

 

Keshwah believes youth can accomplish anything they set their mind to and is determined to set a positive example for them. She enjoys volunteering and organizing events to raise funds to help the less fortunate. At the age of eight, Keshwah visited an orphanage in Trinidad and worked with children. She travelled to Saskatchewan in 2010 to work and helped children with drug and alcohol concerns.

 

Three years ago, she travelled to Kenya with a team of professional health workers and the Canadian Foundation for AIDS Research to work with people afflicted with AIDS. Keshwah helped build a school, raised funds and brought much-needed supplies for communities.

 

Last year, she travelled to the Dominican Republic with a health care team to help run community clinics for those who did not have access.

 

Keshwah is actively involved in the West Indian Community and Brampton. She is a member of the Rotaract Club and recently helped run a Water Walk to raise funds for a water system in Uganda. She has participated in marathons, bikathons, and raises funds for Brampton City Hospital.

    Congrats to you on this wonderful achievement. I really am amazed at the volunteer work that you have accomplished. I admire that most in people. Actually, as the saying goes I’m a pumpkin vine family to you. I would love to get in contact with your parent(Mr.Keshwah). I once lived in Canada for a while and your grandparents were really nice to me and I hold them dearly in my heart.

    Again, congrats, keep up the good work and good luck in your future endeavours. Keep reaching for the stars!!!

    Love Kamla
