On May 12th, 2015, My manager Glenda Stevens and I  met Mark AndrewsMiss Teenage Northern MB and Mark Andrews 2015our, Radio Morning Show Host for CJAR102.9 FM here in The Pas Manitoba, and it was my very first time to speak live ON AIR!  I went to discuss my journey of the pageant and my role of becoming the title holder Miss Teenage Northern Manitoba 2015! I was nervous, but it had to be done and I did it 🙂

And again, I went On Air with Mark to discuss my fundraisers and an update as to what I have been doing for the title Miss Teenage Northern Manitoba 2015! I was still a bit nervous, but I was more prepared on how it works this time around:)

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

In the month of May 2015, me and my fellow band classmates went on a Year End Band Trip to Minneapolis, Minnesota for one whole week. This experience has been one of the most memorable trips I have ever taken!

Our class had the opportunity to do so many cool and amazing things. We went to the science museumScience Museum of Minnesota, the famous Guthrie Theater, Minneapolis Coll of Art Design, Hard Rock Cafe, and of course Mall of America! We also had the opportunity to watch guthrie theaterThe Minneapolis Orchestra perform as well.

Me and my classmates performed at Elementary schools, MHong College Prep Academy, and University of Minnesota. Some of our music pieces we played include the theme song “Let it go” from the anime movie Frozen,mhongMamma Mia, and Snake charmer. Which I think the children, and the University of Minnesota band professor really enjoyed.

All in all, it was a astonishing trip. We had met new people, bonded, and got closer to little girls from mallour classmates and chaperones. I recommend other students in trying out and joining the MBCI band as its not only about playing instruments and performing. It’s also about playing andme and karlene learning new things, and meeting new people in the journey of the music world!

In the summer of 2013 I had tried out and successfully made Team Manitoba for soccer, which earned me a spot on the under 18 Female Soccer Team for the North American Indigenous Games of 2014 (NAIG). The games took place at Regina Saskatchewan on July 2014. NAIG%20Logo_Twitter%20WebThis event showed cased unity, sport, culture, youth, volunteerism, and team work amongst First Nation, Metis, and non-Indigenous youth. The theme of the 2014 North American Indigenous Games was “Raising the bar”. The games had athletes from all sports including archery, basketball, softball, soccer, riffle-shooting, athletics (track), canoe and more.

The opening ceremonies took place at the Mosaic Stadium to start the games. This was an unforgettableblog photo 5able feeling because we were representing our province. Especially into the arena with other teams from across the country and afar.

As the week progressed, I met so many wonderful people from other provinces and countries. naig 2014I bonded with the soccer teams which we had became close, and we all had so much fun! It was nice to see everybody socializing and making memories.

The closing ceremonies was held outside the First Nations University of Regina. I have to blog photo 4say the closing ceremonies were one of the most exciting moments! It had Joey Styles, and The Tribe Called Red perform all night giving us athletes some head banging music to enjoy ourselves until the buses arrived to take us home.

All in all it was an amazing trip!

I am 15 years old and attend Margaret Barbour College Institute here in The Pas, Manitoba. My goal is to become a doctor someday because I love helping others. I have 3 dogs, Misty, Beau and Banana. I get involved with many school activities especially sport.  This includes Track and Field, Badminton, Cross Country, Basketball and Soccer. Last year, I made Team Manitoba in the North American Indigenous Games held in Regina, SK. I was also recently recognized by Skate Manitoba for achieving my Gold Interpretative Test. I competed with my fellow high school students in the provincial Envirothon in Winnipeg MB last weekend. I am creative so I love taking art classes in school. I created many nice projects that I am proud of.  In my past time, I enjoy visiting Elders. I find this very rewarding as they really appreciate the company. I love being outdoors including fishing and hiking.  I am also a figure skater and dancer. I dance tap, ballet and the fancy shawl.

 

On a final note, I encourage all the youth across Canada to try something different and to challenge themselves like this pageant as it is a rewarding experience which supports very worthy causes such as Cardiac Kids and Free the Children!
