Abigail Napoleone, the reigning Miss Toronto Nation Universe 2024, is not only a model but also a trailblazer in promoting diversity and empowerment within the fashion industry. In a recent interview, she shared her insights into her journey, motivations, and aspirations, highlighting her commitment to inclusivity and support for emerging talent. With three years of modeling experience under her belt, Abigail’s passion for the industry stems from her childhood dream of gracing runways and photoshoots. However, her journey is one of determination and endurance, when she faced a severe medical challenge, which only fueled her determination to pave the way for individuals with chronic illnesses in the modeling world. “As a former patient at Sick Kids Toronto, I would have loved having a “big sister” to support me through the treatments and struggles I endured. The platform with my title, is supporting the M.S. Clinic at Sick Kids Toronto- so I can be the support to other chronically ill kids”, says Abigail.
