Callingbull has said that she "never had the perfect childhood everyone dreams of.

Callingbull says she was drawn to the Mrs. Universe competition because of its domestic violence theme. "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."

She also credits turning to her First Nation culture for helping her heal and find herself.
