Today, all the Miss Teenage Canada Delegates went down to the Eaton Centre mall down town Toronto to have lunch at the amazing Richtree Taco Truck! I ordered a delicious beef taco with an old fashion Coca Cola. The staff was so friendly and helpful through out our whole experience. The Taco Truck’s staff works out of a van! Everything is all-natural, fresh, local and in-season ingredients, including antibiotic and hormone-free meats. There are other places other than the Eaton Centre throughout Ontario that have the Richtree Taco Truck. This includes College Park, Bayview/York Mills Centre and Square One Mississauga. You can dine-in or eat out! Thank you so much to all the staff for having us.
Here is a picture from lunch today with Melissa and Madi!
My platform as Miss Teenage Northern British Columbia is to bring more awareness to people who suffer from anxiety. I would like to find alternative strategies and coping mechanisms for people who suffer from these Mental Health Illnesses that are not the normal counselling, medication/narcotics etc.
Why Mental Health Illnesses: I have struggled with severe Mental Health Issues for 6 years. It all started from the never ending bullying I received from grade 7-12. In the beginning, I did not understand what was wrong with me; I thought I was sick. I needed to realise that the brain gets sick too. I socially isolated myself and became scared of people and the future. I am a very shy/quiet person with a lot to say, but I never do, because I’m I get scared. I was put on medication for treatment, the first one did not work, but the second one did. I don’t like medication to be used as a “quick fix” and that’s what this was.
My platform means everything to me because it is something I have experienced and still struggle with today. If I win I will promote my platform by speaking in youth groups to kids who suffer just like I do. I have already started a community mental health awareness campaign that has not yet been released.
Here is a photo from my Mental Health Awareness campaign
Tomorrow is the big day! I leave my home town at 4am to Vancouver, then to TORONTO! It will be fun to be more of a “city girl” for a week (heels, dresses ect.). I had to buy almost a whole new wardrobe for this! lol. Being a small town girl is hard because there is not much opportunity in surrounding areas. I had to step outside the box; look where I am at now, Miss Northern British Columbia! I am so excited to be able to reconnect with the amazing girl that I met in the Provincial Pageant and to meet many more girls at nationals. It is so nice to meet girls that have the same look on life as you do. They are incredibly friendly and so much fun! I can’t wait to meet everyone.♡
A couple months ago I was asked to participate in a Totem pole project in honour of Freda Diesing, who has passed. I was so honoured to be a part of such a traditional First Nations art. Joe Mandur, the main artist, made carving look so easy. It was one of the hardest things I have done. At the end of carving a little bit of the 40-foot Totem pole
Joe donated a beautiful First Nations painting for me to auction off for Free the Children. He has taken pictures with everyone that has carved on the pole and will be making an album with them.
On June 26th, I graduated from Caledonia Senior Secondary School. I maintained my grades with a B honor roll, while juggling College preparations, dance compititions, and events/fundraising for the National Pageant. I have worked hard my whole life and set the bar high. I have overcome most of my Mental Health issues and most importantly stepped outside of the box. I have recently been accepted into College/University. In September 2015 I will be attending The Northern Collaborative Baccalaureate Nursing Program. This is a 4 year program; after I will be specializing in Pediatric Oncology.
On April 1st 2015, I was able to help set up and distribute eggs for the Heritage Park Easter Egg Hunt. It was so much fun, I was called the “Easter Princess”. My favourite part of the day would have been when three little girls came up to me and asked if they could get a picture with the princess. I feel so honoured and proud of what I have accomplished so far. It absolutely melts my heart. I just love kids
Canada is the most beautiful place in the world. Each of the ten Provinces is extremely diverse in many ways. Canada is known for the great people, food, beautiful places to see, and most importantly the landscape.
Canadians have open arms to everyone, no matter what colour your skin is, your ethnicity, or religion. Canadians are known for being kind and overly apologetic.
Canadians most favourite foods consist of bacon, maple syrup, and poutine. Maple syrup and poutine were both made in Quebec and now are being consumed across the world.
There are many huge attractions all across Canada. Lakes are one of the biggest attractions because of the activities that take place at them, for example fishing, kayaking, hiking, and swimming. There tons of waterfalls of all different sizes that are absolutely beautiful. There are also places that you can see wild life in their natural habitat, not in cages or tanks.
The world has a stereotyped Canada in such a humours way. People across the world believe that people who live in Canada live in igloos for houses and have polar bears running around in their backyard. Canada’s weather and climate varies all over the ten Provinces. Some areas are desert as others are more of a rainforest. Many areas have massive mountains with flush green forests whereas others you can see for miles away.
Canada is so great because we are polite and love everyone. What’s not to like about Canada, eh?
I am proud to be Canadian 🍁
On March 28th, I had an incredible opportunity to help sell daffodils for the Canadian Cancer Society in front of a local store. I heard tons of amazing stories from people who have fight for their lives in beating cancer.
Also, on May 30th I participated in Relay For life. I walked around a local school track with cancer survivors and care givers, I was once a care giver. We all have the common goal to help fight cancer.
I am a mature and passionate girl with a huge heart! Upon completion of my grade 12 studies, I will be attending North West Community College, taking the Bachelor’s of Nursing Program. I have maintained honor roll status throughout my High School studies. I would like to specialize in pediatrics and eventually work with children who have cancer. I have been a dancer since the delicate age of 3, and continue to enjoy exploring new genres of dance. I am also an outdoors fanatic that loves to hike, kayak, and fish. Fitness is another huge part of my life, and I attend a gym regularly. When I am not working, dancing, or at the gym, you can find me at the Terrace Animal Shelter caring for animals that have been abandoned or given up for adoption.
On March 1st, 2015 I was crowned Miss Teenage Northern British Columbia. I have always been a role model for children and teens in my community and I would like to take it to the next level. Pageantry opens doors for modeling; acting and much more. Throughout my life I have been suffering from severe anxiety and depression. Competing in the provincial pageant has made me a more confidant person on the inside and out. It has also helped me with my fear of public speaking.
The Miss Teenage British Columbia Pageant has been an all-around amazing experience and I am looking forward to sharing my journey with you.
I will be attending events in my community and surrounding areas and will be keeping everyone posted.
Thank you to all my family and friends who have been there every step of the way.
