17 year old Katelynne Lawrence from Winnipeg, Manitoba is your new Miss Teenage Canada 2018!
Katelynne is as dedicated to the Performing Arts and her community, as she is to her academics. Kate has always loved singing and dancing, and began her performing arts journey at the early age of three! Kate performed her first professional role at eight years old, in Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dream Coat. She later landed a role in the American Girl movie Saige Paints the Sky. Kate believes that it is important to always try to make a positive contribution to the community, and has volunteered at numerous charitable events.
Katelynne plans to continue her training in the arts, modeling and academics. Katelynne believes that these skills are integral to achieving her goal of promoting mental health awareness, and in providing an understanding of the potential impact that bullying, and other factors, such as anxiety, can have on one’s mental health.
