Miss North Ontario
Right after a week of relaxing in Disney World, I went home, repacked, slept, got up, and headed back to the airport where I headed to Sudbury, Ontario for the Miss North Ontario Pageant. The Miss North Ontario pageant is a partner of the MTC organization so they are a qualifying pageant for the Miss Teenage Canada Nationals.
I was a little nervous going into this because it was a three day pageant and nothing like my provincial pageant! Over the course of three days, the contestants went through various motivational and emotionally changing workshops as well as workshops that also focused on the competition. Cheryl, the director of MNO, choose to focus more on personal development rather than the competition aspect of the pageant. I had seen so much growth over these young ladies in such a short amount of time, I couldn’t believe my eyes. I honestly could write so much about this but I really need to condense it but most importantly, this was definitely one of the highlights of my year and I’m considering flying out next year just to help out! Thank you Cheryl for your kindness and generosity and big Congratulations to Jessie Must on being crowned Miss North Ontario 2014.
After a quick trip to Edmonton to see Luke Bryan, I traveled to Shediac, New Brunswick to attend the Miss & Miss Teen Maritimes pageant. This again was a regional qualifying pageant for MTC but was not run by MTC. It was a 3 day long pageant where I got to participate with the girls in their challenges, rehearsals and activities. I think the best parts of it was meeting the past titleholders, hanging out with my good friend Shyann who was Miss Teen New Brunswick 2013 and doing a spontaneous photo shoot on the beach with MEG Photography and Miss Maritimes 2013!
Huge thank you to Marc (JWOW) for having me out and Congratulations to Miss Teen New Brunswick International 2014, Shelley, Miss Teen PEI International 2014, Chloe, Miss New Brunswick International 2014, Lynn, Miss PEI International 2014, Jessica, Miss Teen Maritimes International 2014, Sarah and Miss Maritimes International 2014, Janna.
Good Luck to Brianna Keith, who accepted her title of Miss Teenage New Brunswick 2014 and Ashley Cameron, who accepted her title of Miss Teenage Prince Edward Island 2014. Both girls will be in Toronto with me tomorrow to compete of the Miss Teenage Canada 2014!
