Miss Eldorado

Miss Williams Lake Stampede Queen should be an inspiring woman who strives to promote our city and the beloved sport of rodeo.

As a young woman who upholds her morals and values, embodies a western lifestyle, loves people and serving others, obtaining the title of Miss Williams Lake Stampede Queen would allow me to fulfill many ambitions in my life.  I have great respect for the industry, contestants, and women before me who have held this title.

Being Miss Williams Lake Stampede Queen would allow me to inspire our youth to continue their love for rodeo.

I believe that becoming a contestant will help me build my confidence and teach me to feel free and comfortable with speaking in front of crowds. All of the skills I will obtain from the competition will benefit me in all my future endeavours, as I plan on attending TRU Kamloops Campus in the fall to obtain my Bachelor of Science.

Becoming Miss Williams Lake Stampede Queen would give me the chance to represent and serve our magnificent city as an ambassador for the professional sport of rodeo, the western lifestyle and the strong family values it represents.

Growing up around rodeo has taught me so much. I watched my parents and a friend compete in this great sport. I can think of no greater job than representing the sport and the city that I love.

Rodeo and the western way of life continue to shape the person I am today. When you live a western lifestyle you do it with faith, integrity, determination, kindness, honesty, and a life that centers on family.

Many people are trying to get rid of the western way of life and traditions that we have held on to for generations and being able to stand as an ambassador of the sport would be such a wonderful opportunity.

I have grown up admiring the women who have worn the Miss Williams Lake Stampede Queen crown.  For me, Miss Williams Lake Stampede Queen is a woman who embraces the western lifestyle, holds strong to her values, is a role model for younger generations, and knows the importance of family and faith.  These are qualities I have always strived to uphold both inside and outside the arena.

Go for your goals and go for your dreams.
