Fun fact for your Friday: I won the title of Miss Teen Canada-World on July 25, 2009 and on July 26, 2015 I won the title of Miss Supranational Canada! Two national titles almost 6 years apart to the day! Now I just have to try and win the international title of Miss Supranational 😜 .
I've been seeing posts and photos from the 82 girls competing for Miss Teen Canada and recollecting on my pageant week in 2009. I can tell you that after 4 years of university (including one year of law school!), that week in Toronto remains the most exhausting week of my life! Pageants appear glamorous and perhaps easy... But I can tell you that A LOT of hard work, dedication, and quite literally blood, sweat and tears go into the preparation and the participation in these competitions. I have met some incredibly intelligent and talented women and lifelong friends since my first pageant. I've learned that these are so much more than "beauty pageants." They give young women a platform to stand upon to speak about issues important to them and the opportunity to grow as individuals. 👑👌#missteencanada #missteenagecanada #mtc #misssupranational
