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,

Chloe Fulton :) <3

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.

The Difference

” 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?”
I wondered.
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.”
- Grace L. Naessens

The MTC-W pageant week was something of which I will never forget! From the minute I arrived in Toronto, until the day I left, the time was jam packed with amazing activities, and experiences. The MTCW 12 Delegates were on Breakfast Television, New Music Live, went to the CN Tower, Frankie Tomatto’s Restaurant, the Distillery District, the Eaton Centre (who generously donated $50 gift cards to all of the girls!) and many more amazing places!

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 Official Photo Shoot Picture!

 

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!

 

Kirsten Collins; Ready to sing!

 

 

Kelsey Bryant; Ready to dance!

 

 

 

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!!

Besides, who's more crazy than me ;)

 

 

 

 

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 ChongMelani 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“.

katrina haddenKatrina Hadden is a health and wellness specialist, size 12 model, life coach, motivational speaker and the author of the best-selling self-help book, Making It In High Heels.

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 Orlanmdo, Olympic athleteAlexandra Orlando is a highly decorated world-class Rhythmic Gymnast. Her wisdom can be found inside the pages of an award winning book called In Pursuit of Victory.

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”

She has managed to have a career and a family while building a career as a hospital dentist. Natalie is passionate about giving back and delivering results to her community; she is dedicated to helping her profession. First and foremost, she simply loves being a dentist and it shows!

Natalie started by telling us that she loved the MTC-W mission statement; Be Your Own Kind Of Beautiful. Natalie wants us to keep our opportunities open, and that education is the biggest thing at our age. You can never take away your education. Natalie told us to build our ‘webs’, because we never know where we might catch the fly! The key to success is hard planning, Natalie said, and I couldn’t agree more!

As a part of the Social Media Queen award, supplied by S-Trip!, Miss Teen Canada – World has given us the task of blogging about our ‘Dream Vacation’. The new Social Media Queen award will be granted to the ‘best blogger’ as determined by our talent writing this post, combined with our track record of good blog posts thus far. The winner of the award will be going on a Grad Trip! After thinking for a while, I decided that my Dream Vacation would be in Paris, the capital, and largest city in France! As well as being the ‘City of Love’, Paris has many attractions, holding many years of history inside!

The Eiffel Tower

 

A ‘must-do’ when visiting Paris, The Eiffel Tower can be seen from all aspects of Paris, and one of the world’s most beloved structures. This is one of my most dreamed about sights! I hope someday soon I can get to the top of the Tower and look down onto the Seine River!

View of the Seine River from the Eiffel Tower

The Louvre

Another history filled location in Paris is none other than, the Louvre! The Louvre is home to the famous ‘Mona Lisa’, painted by Leonardo da Vinci between 1503 and 1507. The painting can be found on the second floor of the Denon Wing, as well as other amazing works of art, such as Michelangelo’s Rebellious Slave, Michelangelo’s Dying Slave, and The Winged Victory of Samothrace. The Louvre would be an amazing stop on my dream vacation, but it only gets better!

My Dream Vacation would also include at trip to Disneyland Paris!

Disneyland Paris!

 My top five ride/attractions at Disneyland Paris would be:

1. The Twilight Zone Tower Of Terror!

“Experience breathtaking special effects. Travel to the top of the elevator shaft, pray that lightening doesn’t strike a second time, and prepare yourself for a mind-blowing adrenaline rush. An exhilarating experience that will transport you to a mysterious dimension.”

2. Indian JonesTM and the Temple of Peril

“Prepare yourself for a whip-cracking adventure as you enter the Temple of Peril and find yourself in a runaway wagon speeding through the ancient ruins. Tummy-turning action.”

3. Space Mountain: Mission 2

“Our supercharged canon will blast you on a warp-speed ride into the unknown. Feel the g-force as you dodge screaming meteorites and black holes – and then go back and do it all again!”

4. Big Thunder Mountain

“Ride a runaway mine train on the wind-swept sierras of Big Thunder Mountain. Hold onto your hats, as you twist and turn and plunge headlong through caves and rivers. It’s dynamite!”

5. Buzz Lightyear Laser Blast

“It’s Buzz versus the Evil Zurg… and he needs your help! Spin 360° degrees in your Star Cruiser to save the universe, zapping enemy targets and gaining points to become part of the elite group of Space Rangers.”

Other famous sights such as the Arc de triomphe, Panthéon, Notre-Dame Cathedral, and Bibliothèque nationale would also be on my list for my Dream Vacation!

Arc De Triomphe

Best of all, I would get to share this whole amazing experiences, with my two best friends! Andrea, Morgan and I would spend our time in Paris having the best time we can, sightseeing, shopping, improving our French, and riding roller coasters until we can’t any longer! I know that after the vacation, my friends and I would have nothing but good times to share with everybody! :)

Thanks for reading, I hope that you enjoyed reading about my “Dream Vacation”! Thanks for S-Trip for giving the MTC-W contestants the opportunity to win a student trip!

There are many people in the world, who want to get involved and make a difference. The problem is, they don’t know where to start. ”Let’s Talk!” Hosted by Chloe Fulton, introduces a new issue/problem in society each episode, and information on how YOU can help.

The ''Oprah Winfrey Network''

The Oprah Winfrey Network is proud to bring you: ”Let’s Talk!” What better network to present this amazing new talk show, than the Queen of Talk Show’s herself! Tune in to OWN every Tuesday at 8pm MST to see “Let’s Talk”.

 

Each episode features a new issue in society, and Chloe Fulton talks to special guests, audience members, and discusses how you can get involved with the cause. Special guests brought onto the show will be relevant to the issue, and will share their time with Chloe talking about how they are improving the issue, and how others can get involved. The special guests can be members of an organization involved with the issue, people who have been affected by the issue etc. For example if the topic was ‘Children’s Poverty’, Craig Kielburger, founder of Free The Children would be the perfect special guest. Craig and Chloe would discuss things like, how Free The Children started, how it has affected his life, and what his goal for the organization is.

Sponsors:

”Let’s Talk” has 2 main sponsors, who help fund the talk show. These 2 sponsors are Burman Books, and Me to We Style. When creating the show, Chloe Fulton specifically chose these sponsors, for various reasons.

This company was chosen because they produce ’motivational and self help books’. This would be a perfect company to discuss on an episode with the topic: “Self-Esteem”. Reading is also something that Chloe promotes in her everyday life, and having a book company sponsor her talk show is another helpful way to spread the word about reading.

“50 per cent of our profit goes to our charity partner, Free The Children, to support development projects in rural and impoverished areas across the globe.” *An excerpt from the Me To We Style website.* Me To We Style is partners with “Free The Children”, a charity which is mentioned many times on “Let’s Talk”. Chloe would wear Me To We Style’s clothing on the show, to promote that she supports this charity, and its partners.

Let’s Talk – Promotional Poster: 

Here is the promotional poster for the T.V Show, “Let’s Talk”. On the right hand side, there is a column with clip art of possible “Let’s Talk” episode topics. (Illiteracy, Global Warming, Poverty, Bullying)

At the top of the poster, I chose to write the quote: “Identify your problems but give your power and energy to solutions.” spoken by Tony Robbins; motivational speaker, and self-help author. Being a self-help author, Tony Robins has a lot in common with Burman Books Chief Executive Officer, Sanjay Burman, as they both dedicate their time to helping people. The quote also ties in with the main idea of “Let’s Talk”, being that we are identifying problems in society, and using time wisely to solve them.

When presented with this challenge (A project for Miss Teen Canada – World that we are being marked on) I immediately thought of a Talk Show. Seeing famous women like Ellen DeGeneres and Oprah, I had always dreamed of being as influential and inspiring as them. Being able to host a show like “Let’s Talk” in real life, would be unbelievable, it would be an amazing experience, a way to spread the word about whatever topic I wish. I never imagined that I would be Miss Teen St. Albert, so maybe one day, you’ll turn your T.V on (assuming that in the future, T.V’s would still be used) and see me, Chloe Fulton sitting on a couch, next to Taylor Swift, talking about her involvement with the Tug McGraw Foundation

Thank you so much for reading! Please comment below with your feedback on my ‘Dream TV Show!’ I’d love to hear what you think of it!

- Chloe Fulton :)
