1st Princess: Katrina Martinez (Miss Alberta- Globe 2014)
Katrina is 18 and will be going into her final year of High School. She was born in Calgary, Alberta but it is her mixed heritage that accounts for her unique look. Her father is Pilipino and Spanish and her mother is East Indian and British. Her combination of cultures and a love of milk probably account for her 5’11 stature.

Katrina completed a modeling course and was invited to attend Faces West in Vancouver where she was privileged to meet Coco Rocha. Katrina later learned she and Coco Rocha have more than modeling in common. Both are Jehovah’s Witnesses which encouraged Katrina to see that it was possible to be in a competitive industry but still maintain Bible principles.
At 15 Katrina was signed by Sophia Models International as a model and a stylist and is currently on an internship to learn more about the business. Katrina is also a model with Hollister.
In Grade 9, Katrina also discovered a love of sewing and rapidly found a talent for redesigning patterns and deconstructing existing clothing. As an avid consignment and thrift shopper, Katrina loves to recycle clothing and make what is old new again. She interned with Couture designer Michelle Roberts of Emogene Designs. Who sponsored and designed her opening number dress.
As a natural sports person, she could also often be found in a gym, a pool or on the track field. She also enjoys golf, yoga and Pilates.
