The teen also models for various South Asian shows in Canada, and led to her participation in Miss South Asia 2013 and Beauties of Asia 2013 and came in as a runner up and recently she was crowned Miss Teen Canada Globe 2013/2014. Born in Canada to Sri Lankan parents, she is proud of her ethnic roots and is active in the community in Toronto.

Abissheka had the ideal opportunity to connect with her homeland last year when she visited her mother’s school in Vavuniya.

She was able to interact with schoolchildren at Katkulam Thamil Kalavan Padasalai, teaching them Science, Math, English and basic Computer skills.

“I leaned different ways to teach children, and how to communicate with kids. I went in the summer of 2012 and yes of course, if I ever get the chance to go back I will,” she said.
