It was an incredible honour to represent my community, as the Williams Lake Stampede Miss Congeniality 2008, and my province, as a British Columbia Ambassador 2009.
These incredible opportunities for personal growth, scholarships, and community involvement have allowed for so many unique experiences and I am so thankful for each and every memory.
Representing youth and promoting these positive programs has truly become a passion of mine and I am thrilled to announce that I have been selected as a national delegate for the Miss Canada International program.
As a delegate, I have received the honour of representing our beautiful province as Miss British Columbia Canada.
Going into its 16th year, this national scholarship competition is open to all Canadian women ages 19-26.
The competition takes place in Toronto, Ontario, surrounding the Canada Day celebrations.
The 20 delegates are judged on their personal biography, charity platform, public interactions, personal interview, scholastic testing and overall passion, dedication and desire to make a positive difference as Canada’s ambassador.
Interested young women can apply online for the annual competition at www.misscanadainternational.com and are interviewed either in person or over the phone as part of the selection process.
The chosen Miss Canada International acts as an ambassador to the nation and a role model to women everywhere.
The 2011 title holder will work with Canadian charities throughout her reign and act as a spokesperson for the Teddy Bears of Hope Foundation, which was created by the Miss Canada International organization to spread good will to children in other countries and has distributed more than 100,000 teddy bears to date.
Once again, I am calling upon my community for support and sponsorship.
I have just started approaching local businesses and organizations and I am so thankful to have already confirmed two returning sponsors, the Williams Lake Indoor Rodeo Association and Sight & Sound Audiotronic, and one new sponsor, Heartland Toyota.
I am still seeking out sponsors to assist with the initial entry fees, as well as preparation and travel costs.
If you or your organization are interested in supporting my campaign for Miss Canada International 2011, please, contact 250-267-2461 or stop by and visit me at the Heartland Toyota booth at this weekend’s Rotary Home and Leisure Show
at the Cariboo Memorial Recreation Complex.
I would love to share the good news in person and I would be happy to answer any questions about this upcoming competition.
I look forward to the incredible lessons I will learn and experiences I will enjoy through this program.
I am honoured to receive this new opportunity to represent my generation, my city, my province, and, hopefully, my country.
Thank you for all the years of community support.
