MANILA — Miss Universe Canada 2016 and body positive activist Siera Bearchell is coming back to the Philippines. Bearchell, who was just in the country last week as she competed in the 65th Miss Universe competition, will be returning to Manila for the local launch of Tim Hortons, Canada’s iconic coffee and donuts chain, scheduled at the end of February.
Tim Hortons’ first store in the Philippines will be at the Uptown Place Mall in Taguig.
Bearchell was part of the 65th Miss Universe pageant, where she finished in the top 9.
During her stay in the country, Bearchell made headlines when she took on critics who body-shamed her for her size, endearing herself to many Filipinos.
