For all the girls competing this year, and to anyone that wants to join: GOOD LUCK! The most important thing to remember is to be yourself! The #1 thing I learned through my experience with Miss Teenage Canada is that there is no need to try and copy others, or to do whatever everyone else is doing. You are unique and you have amazing abilities and traits that make you different from the others! Don’t be afraid to show who you are, on and off the stage, in front of or behind the camera.
This experience will teach you so much, and whether you win the crown or not, you will leave home with skills and memories from a wonderful journey. Don’t be afraid to take a risk once in a while- maybe this is your chance to step out of your comfort zone and show the world your shine!
