I have been busy with planning a Zumbathon, I also held a steak and drink night.
The experience in pageants have changed my life , I have become healthier by eating and exercising regularly. I found my voice, once quiet and shy I spoke very little, now I know if I want to be heard I must speak up. Being a victim of bulling I had lost a part of me that may have been gone forever but with the help of pageants I found my confident, my self-esteem I walk with my head held high. Pageants have empowered me, motivated me, to be my Own Kind of Beautiful. It has opened doors for me in the Charity world where I enjoy volunteering, in the modeling world where I have discover a new passion, and it has shown me Dreams can come true.
Yes only one girl can win the crown, but you soon learn that every girl goes home a winner. You are taught to love yourself, have confidence, and to believe in your dreams. The friendships that you form are for a life time, they will always be your sisters.
Wearing the Crown for Miss Teenage Canada www.missteeagecanada.com I would promote it by Showing my inner beauty, being a great role model, attending different events for the communities in our great Country and the many Charities. I would go to schools and talk about my experiences. I would promote my platform Acts of Kindness, because if everyone did one act of kindness a day it would change many lives. To me the crown is not just a symbol of a winner, it is a reminder that you are a Role model, and someone who can make changes for a better life.
