Hello Williams Lake and surrounding areas!
I am Miss Lake Excavating Ltd. Alexis Forseille.
I am ecstatic to be participating in the 2012 Williams Lake Stampede Queen Competition!
I was born and raised in Williams Lake and have enjoyed the Williams Lake Stampede for as long as I can remember.
I first became involved with horses at the age of nine. By the time I turned 14 I had completed my levels one through three in the Western Equestrian Preparation Rider Program. One of the most exciting pieces in this competition for me is the opportunity to use my own horse, Breeze, for horsemanship sessions.
Currently, I am in Grade 12 at Williams Lake Secondary School. I have achieved straight A’s with a 93 per cent average since Grade 8 and have been heavily involved in leadership activities throughout high school.
I was fortunate enough to attend the 2009 Kelowna British Columbia Student Leadership conference as a participant and the 2010 Prince George British Columbia Student Leadership Conference as a selected leader. In 2010, I was also privileged to represent Williams Lake Secondary School at Encounters with Canada, Environmental Week hosted in Ottawa.
With all the experience I gained, I became involved in hosting the 2011 British Columbia Student Leadership Conference in Williams Lake. Unfortunately, due to the teacher strike our conference was cancelled.
I am an active member on the WLSS student council as well as the WLSS Go To Team which is a team of Grade 12 students nominated by teachers to help students in younger grades within our school.
I enjoy every leadership position I am given within our school or community.
I enjoy volunteering at the Williams Lake Veterinary Clinic and have been a member on the Williams Lake SPCA Community Council since October 2010.
Besides volunteering, I enjoy hiking trails around Williams Lake, kayaking, going to fitness classes, and skiing.
However, my favourite activities are enjoying the outdoors with friends, travelling and of course horseback riding!
I am really looking forward to learning more about the history of Williams Lake and the Williams Lake Stampede.
Hopefully our paths will cross during my journey through the Williams Lake Stampede Queen program and I am excited to have the opportunity to meet many members of our community.
Thank you! Hope to see you at the 86th annual Williams Lake Stampede!
