It has been just shy of 2 months since I was in Toronto, at the Miss Teen Canada – World competition, and I miss all of the girls so much!
On September 4th I started Grade 9, and having just finished my second week, I think it’s safe to say that this is going to be a good year!
There are a few videos from MTC-W’s YouTube account that I would like you to see, as they include fun moments from the pageant week:
Community Events: This video is a collection of pictures of all the delegates doing things in their community.
Pageant Week Summary: Here’s a video of everything we did during the exciting week.
Which Celebrity Would You Date?: The delegates tell the camera which famous person they would like to date!
MTC-W ’12 Sponsors Video: A video to thank all of the sponsors of the MTC-W competition.
Also I’d like to thank High NRG Ladies Health and Fitness, they have extended my membership, and I couldn’t be happier! I now also take Zumba classes at High NRG with my Mum, and we both love it! Zumba is a super fun way to stay active!
That’s all for my September update!
Thanks for reading,
‘Till next time,

I was visiting one of my Dad’s friends a few weeks ago, and in her house she has a beautiful wall decoration which includes the following prayer. I found it so true, and inspiring that I had to post it! I hope it touches your heart, like it touched mine.
” I got up early one morning
And rushed right into the day;
I had so much to accomplish
That I didn’t have time to pray.
Problems just tumbled about me,
And heavier came each task;
“Why doesn’t God help me?”
He answered, “You didn’t ask.”
I wanted to see joy and beauty,
But the day toiled on gray and bleak;
I wondered why God didn’t show me.
He said, “But you didn’t seek.”
I tried to come into God’s presence;
I used all my keys in the lock.
God gently and lovingly chided,
“My child, you didn’t knock.”
I woke up early this morning,
And paused before entering the day;
I had so much to accomplish
That I had to take time to pray.”

Megha Sandu, of Quebec was crowned Miss Teen Canada – World 2012 on July 21st 2012. Although I did not get to know Megha that well, I know that she will do our country proud, with her warm heart, big smile, and her talent of being a Comedian!
The St. Albert Leader asked to do an article about my week in Toronto, which you can find here. This article may answer any questions you had about the pageant experience.
My 2 favourite things we did during the MTC-W week was the Photoshoot, and the Talent Gala. The photoshoot pictures are used in the Program Book, and the Finalist Pages.
The Talent Gala was on Friday, July 20th.
The girls who performed were so amazingly talented!! We had singers, dancers, a comedian (Megha Sandu!), and even a contortionist (Nichelle Thomson – Winner of the Talent Award!).Here is a pic of Miss Teen Red Deer – World; Gina Omilon, Lindsay Fraughton; Miss Teen Alberta – World and I before the Talent Gala!
All in all, the Miss Teen Canada – World competition was an amazing experience, and although I did not win, or make it into the top 20, I know that I did my absolute best, and Iwish all of the delegates the best of luck in the future! Congratulations to Megha Sandu, go out into the world, and make a difference!
But don’t think that you have heard the last from me! I still have until next March (Or until the 2013 Miss Teen Alberta pageant) to blog, attend events, and make a difference in my community. So you will be hearing from me very soon, I wouldn’t want to keep you out of my crazy life!!
I would like to Thank all of the sponsors of the MTC-W competition, including the ones who supplied items for the AMAZING gift bags we received on Friday, July 20th!
Thanks to Christi, Chris, Hazel, and Darlene, for putting up with 62 girls for a week, and taking us to the bathroom every half an hour!!
Thanks to Shawn Cuffie, for being an amazing choreographer, and making sure we knew how to make straight lines!
A big thanks to all of my family and friends, for believing in me, and helping me however they could.
Especially thanks to Michelle Weswaldi,
Mentor Night in Toronto July 15th 2012.
On Monday I was very fortunate as to meet this four women, who through their lives have experienced many things, such as rejection, eating disorders, stress, and finally success. It took them a few tries to get to the place that they are today, but they persevered and are now very happy with their lives. I am very glad that they accepted the invitation to talk with us about their experiences, it is a brave thing to do, and I applaud them for their courage.
The first wonderful lady to speak was Melani Chong:
Melani Chong has been in fashion and beauty for over 15 years, a Canadian Ford Model and a mom of two children. Melani has now developed a personalized skin care line called Soya Boutique. These organic products are a natural skin care collection, and useful for the whole family!
Melani was always an athlete in school, she loved sports, but she also had the same feelings for shopping and makeup. When an injury hurt her chances of playing sports as a career at age 17, her dad starting telling her about a Ford Super Model Search, and Melani was surprised. She laughed, because she never imagined herself doing something like that, she was a sporty girl! One day, Melani’s dad asked her if she wanted to go to the mall, and she was surprised by that too, but she went along with it. She should have seen it coming, because before she knew it, her dad was saying: “Oh look Melani, is that the Ford Super Model Contest?!”
She decided to go check it out, and she thought the process would be long and complicated. She was taken aback when all she was asked of was a quick snapshot! Melani was not expecting anything to happen after this, but sure enough 2 weeks later she received a phone call telling her that they want her!
After that, Melani had many meetings, interviews, and photo shoots, and ended up signing with Ford! One day it clicked in her mind, she was working with some of the best, she was the face of MAC. But something kept telling Melani that she could do much more. She started her modelling career, and she also tried hairstyling, and being a makeup artist. Melani had a lot of great opportunities, she learned her challenges, and her strengths. She worked as a stylist, makeup artist, and still wasn’t quite satisfied.
When Melani was pregnant with her 1st son, she realized that she would not be able to model after this. Which is how she came to create Soya Boutique. One of Melani’s favourite sayings is, “Passion leads to drive, Drive leads to core Actions“.

Known for her positive energy and contagious smile, she helps her clients get better focused to achieve their goals and dreams . Katrina Hadden Life Coaching for Athletes has been a life coach for over eight years, specializing in Stress Management, Personal Development, Work-Life Balance and Health and Wellness.
Katrina was always the ‘Tall Girl’ growing up, and she was frequently called harsh names. She tried to ignore them, but it was so hard. “Why?” She would often ask herself. Katrina mostly kept her mind off things by playing sports. She was a competitive basketball player, and a great shooter. Her dream, was making the WMBA. Katrina trained hard, like all athletes do, but unfortunately Katrina was injured and she could no longer pursue her dream.
Katrina realized that she needed to create a new dream for herself. That’s where modeling came in. The problem was, Katrina was a size 12, and she didn’t fall into a category. She knew that if she tried to lose weight, it could turn into an eating disorder. So she took a leap of faith, and moved from Ottawa from Toronto! Katrina also changed agencies. She was now with Ben Barrie, an agency that looked at different; different heights, shapes, nationalities etc.
From their, Katrina had opportunities for commercials, tv and more. 2 years ago, Katrina was given a size 12 gown by a designer, and was asked to wear it in Fashion Week, to represent a different type of figure. When Katrina walked out onto the stage; the crowd started clapping loudly!
A quote that Katrina favours is: “Don’t Quit” – Jill Wolf
Alexandra has just published her second motivational book, Breaking Through My Limits: An Olympian Uncovered.
To be an Olympian; this was Alexandra’s childhood dream. Gymnastics was her life; and by 2003 she was trained, and ready at age 15. Alexandra had never experienced defeat, and she told us that she was very cocky! So when she went to the qualifying event for the Olympics, she wasn’t hoping to get in; she was expecting it. Unfortunately, Alexandra missed qualifying by .1 . This sent Alexandra into a state.
Alexandra started to realizes that winning isn’t everything, it’s about the journey to get there. She told us to thank the people in our lives.
“You have your whole life to fall, and pick yourself up again”
