Toronto Rose
Toronto Rose Erica Daly Hi! I’m Erica, I'm 24, and I’m the 2023 Toronto Rose. I’m so proud to be representing such an incredible city. As an Irish dancer of 17 years, I had the opportunity to compete in many cool places, which taught me that every day is a chance to learn something new. I’ve recently completed a Bachelor of Commerce in Integrated Business and Humanities followed by a Master of Environment and Sustainability. Can you tell I love learning? I work at a local College in the Energy and Power Innovation Centre as a Project Manager. I absolutely love what I do because I help real people with real-world challenges through sustainability solutions. I’m passionate about protecting our Earth’s natural resources and hope that I can one day share this passion as a university professor. In my spare time, you’ll find me reading, doing crosswords, learning Italian, or volunteering with ALS Canada and the Board of Directors of my local library. My paternal grandparents were born in Ballinasloe and Portumna, Co. Galway. I can’t wait for an amazing celebration of Irish culture and heritage in Tralee, building new friendships and wonderful memories along the way!
