Well, I am Olivia! Friends and family call me Liv. I think I am one of the many Olivia’s in this pageant, it feels as though there are about 100 other Olivia’s, which is pretty funny! First of all, this is an experience of a lifetime. It’s unbelievable. Representing an Island, a region, my home town… it will be a huge responsibility, and I have never done anything like this ever before. To be completely honest with you, I am scared out of my mind! The biggest feeling that is taking over though, is the rush of excitement.
I graduated in the summer of 2015, and I could have hid 5 human beings under my gown, I barely fit in the car..! I am looking forward to moving on from the life of school, to getting married and sarting a family.
I work at Thrifty Foods, and at a hair salon as a hairdresser! I love to perform in front of an audience. Ever since I was little, I performed on stage, in my living room, anywhere. You would find me dancing, singing or tumbling. I am not a very shy girl. I love to make new friends. I don’t take people for granted, because you never know who they can become to you. I love God, and thank Him for where He has put me in my life. A few of my other favourite things are sleeping, eating, and being in the sun! Now, apparently a new passion of mine is pageants!
I grew up on a farm with my sister, in a tiny home, in the midst of a forest, with no neighbours. As you might have guessed already (or maybe not because this is a very rare case) I was homeschooled my whole life. I often get “wow, do you have any friends?” or “who taught you everything? Your cat?”. Yes, I do have friends. No, my cats IQ isn’t as high as mine. When you are homeschooled, it’s usually online. Teachers grade you through the online courses, and us high school homeschoolers would all get together and do classes together or go on fieldtrips. I made lifelong friends, and met my future husband through homeschooling! SO honestly, it’s not that bad. 😉
This is the reason I am most thrilled to be in this pageant..
As Miss Teenage Vancouver Island 2016, my goal is to raise $15,000 by the end of the year to send somebody from Vancouver Island to San Diego with cancer to be treated at the Gerson Clinic, and their companion since somebody has to go with them.
I feel so deeply for people with cancer. But it can be treated, and be healed completely! Throughout my one year reign as Miss Teenage Vancouver Island 2016, I am going to raise awareness towards a cancer treatment called the Gerson Therapy. An institute in San Diego, called the Gerson Clinic is a clinic where they treat many types of cancer patients by juicing certified organic fruits and vegetables, and perform detoxifying procedures.
I know that cancer is one of the hardest things to go through, for the person, and for the family. This is why I am doing this.
I am not a professional blogger at all… I can never seem to think of things to write. But I can’t wait to share my next (hopefully exciting) post with you guys!!!
You can call me Liv 🙂
