Meaghan - Canada's Next Top ModelAge: 19
Height: 5’9.5”
Hometown: Winnipeg, MB
Occupation: Retail

Meaghan would do anything to pursue her dream of modeling – even waking up at the crack of dawn. With no CANADA’S NEXT TOP MODEL auditions in her home city of Winnipeg, she woke up at 4 a.m. to board a plane for Toronto. “I was absolutely exhausted throughout the whole day and standing in line for five hours in heels was not the best,” recalls Meaghan with a laugh. “But it was all well worth it.”

Growing up as a tall, lanky tomboy, Meaghan didn’t think modeling was a possibility for her until a couple of years ago when people started telling her she should consider it. But it wasn’t until she made it through the first round of the CANADA’S NEXT TOP MODEL auditions did she actually believe it.

With no previous modeling experience, Meaghan set up a runway of sorts in her basement to practice. “I could not walk in heels to save my life,” admits Meaghan. “I set up a mirror at one end and a mirror at the other and walked back and forth until I got my walk down.”

Currently working at a retail boutique, Meaghan is also studying architecture at the University of Manitoba.

She thinks her lack of experience is actually what would make her a great CANADA’S NEXT TOP MODEL.

“I’m totally green, totally fresh and I think that’s what CANADA’S NEXT TOP MODEL should be. Somebody that has come here, without experience and built to the top … I know I will absorb and learn and as soon as you tell me I’m not going to be able to do something I will prove you wrong.”
