One week left until the Ontario pageant ladies! I just thought I would leave you all with a bit of advice for the big weekend – this goes to everyone else in the upcoming provincial pageants as well.
First and foremost, be yourself. All that matters is you go into this pageant rested, relaxed and just being you! Sorry for the ‘cheesiness’ but I cannot emphasize this enough. It is completely understandable that everyone gets nervous (I fully do!) but please do not ever believe that you are not capable of anything. Every person processes qualities that unique and incredible – embrace them and do not try to change them. For example, I have never exactly been a ‘girly-girl’ but I originally went into the Ontario pageant as myself – the girl who loves sports, adores to travel and has no problem getting my hands dirty (or breaking a nail) on service projects. After all, the pageant motto is “Be Your Own Kind of Beautiful” – yours, no one else’s.
Secondly, HAVE FUN! You are going to be meeting so many wonderful people and I promise that many of them will end up being your good friends! Try your best to embrace every moment of this experience.
Lastly, be sure to bring some snacks – you want to make sure you keep yourself energized throughout the day.
If any you (contestants or potential contestants) have any questions, do not hesitate to ask. You can either send me a message on Facebook, post on the Miss Teenage Canada page or comment on this post.
All the best and good luck to everyone! See you Sunday! Xo
