As Miss Teenage Vancouver Island, I’ve been able to embark on a unique journey to inspire my peers, touch the lives of young people, and also be a role model for strangers and friends. With the combination of the pageant and my sport (rugby) I’ve come to realize this journey is just beginning and I’m inspired to continue to make a difference. It’s my goal to become Miss Teenage Canada 2015 and my intention is to create harmony with my spiritual being and with this I feel that anything is possible. It’s through my example that I want to demonstrate this for all young people.
I am growing both spiritually and emotionally and realize that if I stay true to myself and use the precious gifts I’ve been given, I can make that difference in profound ways.
It is my pageant platform and vision to bring equal opportunity of sport to all young people. It is by focusing my attention on bringing awareness to all youth of their strengths, virtues and that part of them that strives for the highest potential that I want to make a difference. I want my energy to influence, radiate and become an effective instrument for positive expansion and authentic empowerment with whom I connect so that it carries with them throughout life.
Being active in sports is one of many gifts that I’ve personally received in my life and I know it gives me a point of grounding. I believe that with mentorship every individual has unlimited potential and its because of this that I’m a high performance athlete today.
As Miss Teenage Canada 2015, I’ll continue to demonstrate to young people the value of being active in organized sports and work with organizations that can provide support to remove any financial barriers they have in order to pursue their goals.
I’m an active volunteer as a head rugby coach in a local mini rugby program and I will continue to work both within my community and globally with a focus on sport, health and wellness related to youth.
