I am happy to be your Miss Teenage Northern Manitoba 2016.

In May, 14, 2016, I entered for Miss Teenage Manitoba 2016. I got crowned for Miss Northern Manitoba. My time at the pageant was amazing, everyone there was so amazing  an u felt like u could be your self there and not have to lie about who you are. This pageant made me have a lot of confidence its funny how two days can make u look at your self in a different way a way u can see your true beauty in your self. When the pageant was done, the next couple of weeks where the busiest weeks for me. I didn’t get sponsored by business but they did donated items. I had to do a lot of fundraising for my self. Its surprised me when everyone help me in my town, I was so great-full, lots of my friends helps me too and it was nice cause we got closer and the two biggest people in my life who helped me a lot was my step dad and mom they were the ones who organized everything for me and i am so thank full for that, I honesty cant wait for the trip to Toronto, its gonna be a memory that i will never forget:)

So the fifth day of the Miss Teenage Canada 2015 week, all the delegates had went to The Eaton Centre mall in Toronto, Ontario to visit the Rich Tree Taco Truck for lunch! imageWalking into the mall had given me the most incredible feeling of being welcomed and being treated like a mini celebrity from people smiling, waving, and taking pictures all around. I absolutely loved it!image

Any who, after taking pictures. I was starting to feel little hungry, and this could not be the most perfect time to eat fresh delicious tacos to clench the cravings. When I was in line waiting for my turn to order, I was worried because as I observe the menu I’m going to be honest. I did not know how to pronounce half the ingredients but eventually I chose to try the Chicken Polo Chipolet burrito. It tastes better than it sounds, Trust me!

What I like most about the Taco Truck is not only the old fashioned style van but that the employees were so polite, the meal was free, and the service was great! Not even five minutes after ordering, my burrito was already ready! I could not wait to eat it!image

My impression scale of the burrito blew me away. I did not expect it to be that spicy and that delcious at all!

All in all, I had such a great time inside the Eaton Centre and eating the most tasty burrito ever. Especially for the first time!

The platform I have chosen is a very difficult and sad issue, but must be addressed in a larger spectrum. It is about the high suicide rate among our youth and how it is growing daily. The reason why I chose this platform is because I am a youth and when I think about another young life going before their time I think – what could anyone have done to help or prevent this from happening. So, instead of talking about it and wondering what can be done, I want to do anything I can to help this from further happening. I want the youth to know that there’s always someone willing to help. We just need to find the answer. What can I do?

I began:

  • Continuously researching all avenues on how I can help such as Mental Health Promotion, Awareness and Understanding,  Prevention and Intervention.
  • Approach schools to help with strengthen collaboration between counseling within schools and beyond schools.
  • Developing suicide prevention awareness kit for use by schools that promote mental health, reduce stigma and encourage recognition of mental health issues and mental illness. Also include in these kits resource numbers of the best people who can help.
  • Seek ways to create a Peer Support Group program and youth drop-in centres.
  • Help deliver hands outs that have information on depression and addictions that target the youth whether they be at group homes, schools, colleges, religious/spiritual institutions, correctional institutions, or even health care centres that may not have the information with the assistance of various organizations that deal with the very issue.
  • I met with Primary Health Worker Charles Gregoire in hopes to sit on the Suicide Prevention Awareness Committee as a youth representative. Now I am their youth representative.
  • I contacted Teen Talk in hopes on how I can help coming from a youth-friendly perspective for youth in school, youth at risk and service providers. I would help promote myself as a person willing to listen to them. That they can trust me so that they can reach out and talk to someone, including friends, family, crisis centres and understand that they matter.
  • As a a Youth Representative in Canada, I would promote my platform by connecting with centres or general public in various communities to promote or continue to promote awareness and that they are there to help and are there for just for them. That they offer guidance and compassion with that help.
  • I would speak to the youth all over, whether it is at schools, conferences for youth, health care conferences, visit hospitals, treatment centres and let them know that they can make positive changes in their lives by having a dream, by setting attainable goals for themselves. To believe in themselves, by seeking out opportunities. You will never know which doors will open for you until you take that first step. Part of the topic i would concentrate on would be the 7 sacred teachings which includes courage, humility, love, truth, wisdom, honesty, and respect. These teachings are for all nations to use as guides to help in their journey of life.
  • I would seek various ways to ensure that youth have opportunities to keep themselves busy and motivated and ensure there is plenty of access to motivational speakers, role models, Elders, and anything else we all enjoy doing. I would talk about how the world has changed in our generation and how we need to keep up. We need to stay in school and remember, we are going to be the future leaders.

The reason why I love Canada is that it is a naturally beautiful country, where all citizens from all provinces can feel at home. I’m so proud to be from a country that welcomes people from all ethnic backgrounds, customs, and values. We’re all different yet we all have something in common. We can all call ourselves Canadians!3untitled

Canada is great because of itself being a free and democratic country. The country is like no other. For example, imageswe all have the right to vote, we all have access to free medical care, clean waters, and an extensive landscaping from coast to coast. It’s filled with beauty of nature with endless lakes, rivers and all the four seasons. Nature is one of the main reasons of what makes Canada unique.2untitled

I just love the fact that being Canadian there is a sense of freedom and being able to travel in this vast land. Canada has everything this world has to offer, plus more. It’s a safe country, it’s peaceful, especially having the northern lights dance in our night skies.imagesP51M6J69

Canadians takes pride of the many opportunities Canada has to offer. Everything in Fine Arts in dance, music, theatre and all sports. Majority of the best athletes come from this country. It has many programs to develop top level athletes. The athletes are able to compete and represent this country at all championship levels. Therefore all nations are proud to call Canada an adventurous place to call home!untitled.png3

On June 18th I went to the Kelsey Community School and I was very grateful I got the chance to read to a class of grade ones. I had a very warm and exciting welcome from all the kiddies inside and outside the school:) The class I read to was so respectful and nicely mannered from beginning to end. I was very nervous for my first time, but I did it and t was a lot of fun! Overall it was a great experienceIMG_4201

On June 22nd I went back to Kelsy School again and read to another grade one class. Reading to kids has opened me up so much and I have to say it got easier each time . It was so much fun and I really enjoyed the children asking me a bunch of question!:)IMG_4248

On May 2nd, the MBCI students and myself participated in the “We Are Silent”. We were bringing awareness to those who don’t have a voice!we are silent mbci

Around the world there are those whose voices are not heard. They are the girls who are denied an education because of gender, inequality, school fees, or the need to stay home and care for younger siblings. They are the child laborers we are silent gabby and emma or the children growing up in poverty. They are the students who are bullied at your school. Every one of them has a voice that needs to be heard. So we took a silent stand so they can speak out! <3
