Being only sixteen years old and having the honor of attending the Pride of Strathcona Awards was unbelievable. I cannot express how much fun and pleasure I had in welcoming the amazing people who have volunteered in our community and have definitely made a difference in the lives of others. Strathcona County is and has been an extremely proud place for as long as I can remember.
While I was there, I got to meet many very important people such as Linda Osinchuk who is the mayor of Strathcona County and I also had the honor of meeting Iris Evans who is one of our MLA’s. After an evening of congratulating those who have made us proud, serving drinks to the council members and making a lot of new friends, Mayor Osinchuk and miss Evans came to a decision that they we’re going to bring before the council a sponsorship for Miss Teen Canada World 2012. A couple of days later, I went back to the mayor’s office, but not for another gala. I went back to give them a “Thank you” card for sponsoring me with my journey to Miss Teen Canada World-2012.
