Hi all! First of all, congratulations to all students who just began their summer vacations. You worked really hard all year for this holiday – cherish every moment!With Canada Day just a sleep away, I wanted to share how I will be spending it!
What’s to come
The day for me starts off in Quinte West for their Canada Day Eh parade. I’m very excited for this – not only will I be in this sweet ride, but this will also be my first time ever participating in a parade! I’ve had many friends be in Christmas and other festival parades, but I’ve always been on the sidewalks wishing I too could be apart of the fun. Thank you Quinte West for making this wish become a reality!
After the parade, I will be joining Quinte West for their opening ceremonies. I will be briefly speaking about my title, my platform, and how to vote for me as People’s Choice Miss Teenage Canada in just a few weeks.
After this opening ceremony, I will be heading over to Belleville’s Zwick’s Park for their Canada Day opening ceremonies! Councillor Thompson will be introducing me, where I will then also share with all of Belleville the opportunity to vote for me as People’s Choice Miss Teenage Canada. Following the opening ceremonies is a ton of festivities that I am eager to try out. Who knows, maybe you’ll see me even attempt some Flyboarding!
I travel back to Quinte West in the evening to throw the opening pitch for a baseball game. and sing on stage with Wrought Iron Roots!
With every glimpse into the future, comes a glimpse from the past
It’s so surreal to think about the many opportunities journeying to Miss Teenage Canada has brought me. Leading up to the Miss Teenage Ontario pageant, I organized my first flashmob performance. Now, leading up to Miss Teenage Canada, I’ve organized a concert that headlined a JUNO nominated singer/song-writer, will be throwing the opening pitch of a baseball game, and will be singing in front of the public for the first time in 15 years! Back when I was 4, singing was what I enjoyed most. I competed in Candian Model and Talent Convention, singing my favourite song at the time: Lucky by Britney Spears. Although I stopped performing after that, I kept up with my vocal training. I’m super excited to have the opportunity to be singing on a stage again, however am glad this will be happening in a group setting, as I don’t think I’m quite ready to go solo again. 😉
Speaking about singing…have you heard that the lyrics to our national anthem, O Canada, has been edited to be more gender neutral? This change makes me happy to be Canadian – we as a country are taking the steps to equalizing gender significance! And what makes me even prouder is that we are raising the importance of the female gender without degrading the male gender. I believe this is super important, as no gender should compensate the other. What are your thoughts?
Well…I cannot even express how excited I am for tomorrow. I just picked out my red and white outfit, rehearsed my speeches, throw, and song, and now am about to paint my nails the proud colours of the Canadian flag. I really hope to see you there!
