Ashley Callingbull (married name Burnham) has been a regular in the beauty pageant scene for some time now. She was the only First Nations contestant in the 2010 Miss Canada pageant and was recently a finalist in the 2013 Miss Canada pageant. Last week she made history by becoming the first Canadian AND the first First Nations woman to win the title of Mrs. Universe. Not to be confused with Miss Universe, Mrs. Universe is an international contest for married women.

According to our rules she must age 25 to 45, to have family, her own career and to be involved with a significant cause in favour of other people.

In an interview with CTVNews, she said she was drawn to this competition because of their focus on domestic violence this year.

“I thought, this is a perfect platform for me because I’m relatable to people, I’ve experienced this myself and I’m able to speak about it,” she said. “I’m glad I’m able to use this title as a way to speak for others that can’t speak for themselves.”

And here she is being interviewed by CBC News:

Ashley shared some of the moments of the competition on her Instagram account.

Check out this gorgeous jingle dress she had made for the pageant!

And this swimsuit is stunning!

Congratulations again Ashley! I know you have already made a lot of Canadians and First Nations people proud!

The best feeling! So surreal 💕 @mrsuniverse2015
