I can’t believe it, the countdown is on for Miss Teenage Canada. I am very proud to announce I will be representing the beautiful province of Prince Edward Island. I can’t wait to meet all the girls and staff during this week of fun filled adventures.

A little about me:  My name is Olivia, I’m 16 and live at the eastern end of PEI. I grew up with the love of entertaining. Starting at age 5 I began to play the fiddle in a community group and now play in my school band. At age 8 I began to Step dance, which I still love to this day. I enjoy dancing at Rollobay Fiddle Festival, competitions and different charity events. When I was 11 I started doing local plays and variety concerts. My family are very supportive of me and love to help/see me succeed however they can. In late 2017 early 2018 I joined my first pageant “Ms, Miss and Miss Teen Maritimes” I had no previous experience in the pageant field but seen it as an amazing opportunity for personal growth. I was lucky to learn many new things and meet lots of amazing people. With this I was honored to win the title Miss Teenage Maritimes 2018 along with overall top fundraiser and Miss Teen popularity. I’m over the moon excited for all the new doors this has opened up for me through all of my hard work. I get to go to Guatemala summer 2019, and now on the journey for Miss Teenage Canada 2018.

I want to thank everyone for all the constant support and encouragement given to me on this journey. Thank you to my parents. I love you both so much. Without your love and belief in me I wouldn’t get where I am today. Thank you to the Miss Teenage Canada staff and crew for giving me this opportunity to showcase my abilities and hard work. Thanks not only to my community but to sponsors, friends, family, family friends and everyone else for all the support. I hope to make you all proud in Toronto and can’t wait to see where this new opportunity will take me.

Please follow me on my journey to Miss Teenage Canada 2018. For more updates follow my blog and add my personal facebook page.  https://m.facebook.com/missteensourisintl/?ref=bookmarks

Day four was another early morning! The girls and I loaded onto the bus where we appeared on Global and National television where girls were picked in random order to go up and answer a fun question!

After we left Global we all went back on the bus and headed to the CN Tower and visited the glass floor! Going up the elavator to the top of the CN Tower was crazy but amazing! The view was beautiful

although our ears popped like crazy!! When we went to the glass for I was scared to walk on it, so me and one of the other ladies decided to hold hands and face our fears together by walking on the glass floor, and let me tell you all, I was pretty proud of myself!!! 🙂

 

 

When we were done touring the CN Tower, we had an hour to kill so some of us girls made our way over to this little band that was playing music, and they were AMAZING!! We did what ever we could do to kill that hour in the hot weather that afternoon! When then went back to the hotel where we went back to our rooms to eat our lunches. Later that evening the girls and I had once again loaded back onto our bus and were on route to the Toronto Eaton Centre. It’s kind of funny, when I had gotten off the bus, I noticed how a lot of us were matching, and we obviously had to take a picture of it! After taking some photos outside we went inside where we would receive our $10.00 gift cards for the food area so we could eat where ever we wanted to! As we stood to get instructions on what we needed to tweet, instagram and facebook we would look above us and see numerous people looking down at us taking pictures and wondering why we were all wearing a sash and crown!! We were also lucky to do a little shopping before we went to eat supper. After eating supper we loaded back onto the bus to go and do rehearsals and then called it a night !

VOTING ENDS FRIDAY SO BE SURE TO VOTE!

Day three was an early morning as I had woken up at 3:30am to get ready to appear on Toronto’s Breakfast Televison. It was amazingly cool to see how everything works with these kind of morning shows and watching everyone do their “own thing.” The girls and I were excited to appear on Breakfast television, and also to see how it works on the other side of the television!

After Breakfast Television, the girls and I loaded back onto our bus and were on our way to breakfast at High Park. As it was a gorgeous day, all 55 of us sat out on the deck where we got to enjoy the environment surrounding us, and enjoy a delicious meal! Once we finished we headed back to the hotel for a presentation by Schwarzkopf Professional  on different and easy ways to do our hair if we want it to be different and if we like change! 🙂 Following the presentation we were split into groups of 4 and had to do either the best bun or the best braid on one of the girls and it was the funniest, funkiest thing ever to do! We then got a little goodie bag from them with some products we can use for our hair to help us do a different style!

It was then lunch time, and Panera Bread sponsored us lunch! Their sanwiches were so good, the food in general was delicious and it was very filling! After lunch we had made our way to Yorkdale mall, where Bench had sponsored us a $25.00 gift card to shop, and as well as had polaroid camera’s for us to take pictures with and to keep the pictures as a keep sake! During our visit at Bench, we had to tweet and instagram photo’s of us shopping and having a good time and then got to go to the foodcourt with a $10.00 gift card to have what we wanted to eat for supper, and it was delicious and so kind of the mall to sponsor us a $10.00 gift card! so THANK YOU A BUNCH!

When we were finished eating we made our way back to the hotel where we were going to begin doing rehearsals. We learned how to walk for bikini and evening gown, and started to learn our opening number dance!! 🙂 After two hours went by, we finally got our Hi-Tec sandals, and they couldn’t of came at a better time as my feet were very sore from rehearsing in my high heels!

Stay tuned for a post about day four !

ALSO VOTING ENDS FRIDAY!! SO PLEASE VOTE, VOTE…. VOTE!!! Share with friends and family and encourage them to vote for the girl representing our beautiful Island! It only takes seconds, and the little things count right? Like this for example will fast track me to top 20 so please help me out!!

I’m so happy that she is my roommate! It definitely felt good to be able to unpack everything from 11+ dresses, skirts, tops, heels, and so on!!! Then 6pm came and we were all heading down to registration followed by the welcome party to have the chance to meet the other girls from other provinces!! Once we had entered the room we were all eager to visit each of our sponsors stands and to learn about them and to check out their samples and to learn about their company! Thank you to Motives Cosmetics for the free nail polish and for doing our make-up this week you guys are ABSOLUTELY AMAZING! We all believe that you will make us look beautiful for our competition! 🙂 I would also like to thank Hi-Tec Canada for sponsoring all of us girls some comfy sandals!They will be an amazing thing to have for our tired and sore feet from wearing heels for a long period of time, so thank you so much for being a life saver for all of our feet!

With Nationals 3 days away I wanted to take this time to thank my friends and family for all of their continued support along my journey of Being Miss Teenage Prince Edward Island! I’m very honoured not to only represent Summerside, but my province at Miss Teenage Canada. To my parents, thank you for believing in me for this big accomplishment and all of the help for preparing for this exciting event, without you guys my head wouldn’t be in line! A huge shout out goes to all of my sponsors! There is a lot of you but without you guys I wouldn’t be leaving in three days! After all of the phone calls, and emails a day you are all amazing sponsors and I couldn’t thank all of you enough! Without the numerous sponsors I have gotten I wouldn’t be able to participate in this amazing pageant and meet all 70 girls from across Canada!

To all of the girls that I will be with in three days, word’s cannot possibly describe how excited I am to meet each and everyone of you to experience an outstanding week! With Breakfast Television, touring, and much more! I love you all already and cant wait to meet you all ! No matter the outcome, we are all winners and its going to be an amazing week!!

We all wonder about things from the past and what certain events were like, and how well it grew. Like Miss Teen Canada for example is something that most of our parents would remember being televised.  This beloved pageant was held annually here in our beautiful country. This was a personality and beauty competition for ladies between the ages of 14-17 years old from across our beautiful country. In 1969 is when Miss Teen Canada Pageant was first televised on CTV along with Miss Canada where now there is more than one Teen Canada pageant.  During 1969 they had financial concerns which led to the pageant having to be shutdown in 1990. The pageant was named Miss Teenage Canada for its first three years and was sponsors by A&W, Drive-Ins, Cleo Productions, who owned the event for quite some time.

In our century, the largest competition is owned by MTC-W inc. and is produced by the wonderful Michelle Weswaldi. It launched in 2008 and Katie Starke from Uxbridge, Ontario took the crown back to her hometown.  Miss Teenage Canada is the only pageant to hold provincial pageants to qualify your spot to compete for the Miss Teenage Canada title. When you win the title you receive over $30,000 in cash and prizes and much more! To hold an amazing pageant like Miss Teenage Canada, you need a wonderful celebrity judge panel that has included Belinda Kiriakou who is in Canada’s number one fitness magazine, Sara Fisher who is a singer and songwriter, model and actress, Chelsae Durocher who had competed and was able to compete nationally and internationally as she represented Canada at the Miss Universe in 2011, and many more! Celebrity hosts such as Luke Bilyk, who stars on the show Degrassi, and Cynthia Loewen who has been in pageantry since she was 16 years old. Without having a judging panel and wonderful hosts, there wouldn’t be a way to hold such a significant pageant!

Free the Children are a non-profit organization founded by Marc and Craig Keilburger that shows leadership and children helping children all around the world. This organization is to help shape a community and is the world’s largest network for children helping children through education, with having more than a million youth involved in innovative and education in 45 countries. Each year delegates will do fundraisers to help support this organization to give back and to help make people happy and to make a difference to end poverty. To date on the Miss Teenage Canada website, they have raised over $190,000.00 to benefit outstanding organizations!

During my years of being involved with pageantry, I have gained so much confidence, and learned so much about myself. It has helped me overcome so many fears as to being stage fright, and talking in front of big crowds. I’m so thankful to be in pageantry because so many new friendships are shaped and so many memories are made. The reason to why I applied for Miss Teenage Canada is because it will help be gain more confidence, as well has experience and to have a tremendous week with ladies from all over canada and to of course take the title home! I have gotten involved with my province tremendously, with helping fundraise for The Children’s Wish Foundation, volunteering at my hometown’s festival and talent show, serving samples at store’s grand openings , dropping the puck at Junior ‘A’ hockey game, speak at cyber-bullying dances and etc! For Miss Teenage Canada I had to fundraise for Free the Children where I had a huge basket draw, as well as sold fries thanks to Cavendish Farms for letting me use their Fry cart!

To conclude, with me winning Miss Teenage Canada not only would it be an honour but, I want to reach out to kids who are too scared to chase after their dreams, because if you fight hard enough to reach it you will achieve it. I would give back to not only my province, but to people who don’t get noticed enough for what they do for our country, and as well as our hometowns because everyone deserves to be noticed for their accomplishments they have made in life that have taken not only an impact on yourself, but for the community surrounding you.  With the title I want to end world poverty, because it is a problem for families all over the country and I know so many people will take the right initiative to help out and to end poverty because it needs to end. Same for bullying, nobody deserves to be let down because everyone is beautiful inside and out, and you can’t hate someone when you don’t know their story.

Hope you enjoy reading this assignment and stay tuned for more assignments and blog posts!

Love always,

Ashley xoxo
