I am a native Albertan, and live in Sherwood Park, Strathcona County. We have a population of about 100,000 and we hold the distinct title of being the largest Hamlet in the world! We are connected to Edmonton and have the feel of small town living with big city excitement!
I am 16 years old and have been a competitive dancer since the age of four. Being a dancer for most of my life has had a huge impact on me; it has taught me passion, determination, sportsmanship, discipline, commitment, and the importance of working hard for what you want in life. Winning several ‘First Place’, ‘Outstanding Performance’, and ‘Most Promising’ Awards in dance competitions has given me the drive to accomplish anything I set my mind to. I am training to become a dance teacher and plan to do that part time while I further my education so that I can continue being involved in the dance world. I am most looking forward to teaching and choreographing for children!!
As well as my passion for dance, I have been very involved in other sports such as high jump and basketball; winning MVP Award last year for my school team. I also enjoy writing poetry, lyrics and most of all, the dramatic arts!
Having participated in the French Immersion program for the last eleven years has helped me achieve my bilingual status and I hope to use this is in my future career as a High School teacher. I plan to attend University after High School and take a major in Education with a minor in Drama. My ultimate dream career is to be a High School English teacher and Drama coach.
I enjoy volunteering within, and outside my community. I have done a lot fundraising in the past for the Stollery Children’s Hospital through my mom’s involvement; was involved with, and really enjoyed visiting and bonding with Sr. Citizens through ‘Linking Generations’ all throughout Jr. High School, and have volunteered at Hope Mission and The Mustard Seed – both facilities for the homeless. I have also volunteered as a dance assistant teacher for the past 3 years at our studio.
I have had much public speaking and stage experience in the past eleven years and feel at home with the whole pageant process. I have already met great friends at the Miss Teen Alberta pageant and am looking forward to meeting many more at the Miss Teen Canada pageant in July!!
I feel extremely blessed and very thankful for having such a loving family who support me and adapts to my lifestyle and I don’t know what I would do without them.
Thank you & Merci
