Introducing Miss Grand Canada 2023

Toronto, Ontario

Yuliya is a finance and economics graduate from the Rotman Commerce program at the University of Toronto and has been awarded the Governor General’s Academic Medal. A former competitive figure skater and current Skate Canada coach, she created Yuliya’s Cookbook to promote wellness and share healthy recipes on social media. She is a co-founder of The Beba Project, a long-running charitable initiative for infants in her hometown, and a proud Ukrainian-Canadian who was a cover model for Ukrainian People magazine in the USA.

In 2017, Yuliya co-founded The Beba Project to aid disadvantaged infants. Since the onset of the war in her native country, her humanitarian efforts have pivoted to Ukraine. She uses her passion for nutrition and physical and mental health to promote wellness while also raising funds for Ukraine. Through her social media account Yuliya’s Cookbook, she hosts cooking workshops and develops cookbooks to raise funds, but also shares healthy recipes and nutrition tips to encourage others to nourish, not punish, their minds and bodies.
