Brums, who is originally from Chile, moved to Moose Jaw earlier this year with his wife and daughter, started baking at a young age. “Levi started to bake when he was a child, he loved to bake. He learned from his mother in the beginning,” said Brums, who speaks very little English, through his translator Karen Uasquez. “After this he started to bake himself for vistors, family, friends and school. He then decided to go college to study baking and most recently has taught others how to bake. He’s been baking his whole life.” continued Brums through Uasquez. Brums and his family moved to Moose Jaw during the summer of 2023. His long-term goal is to stay in Canada and open a bakery or coffee shop. Brums and Uasquez have leveraged social media and Chilian influencers to help him progress through the contest and is now hoping members of his new community will help propel him further in the contest. “We need your support and the only thing you can do to help Levi is give your vote, go to the website and vote for him every single day,” added Uasquez. Brums is currently sitting in 1st place in his group and hopes to advance to the next round. Voting in this current round ends at 9 p.m. on Thursday, December 7, 2023.
