Hello! My name is Audrey and I am the reigning Miss Teenage Western Saskatchewan 2016! I am so excited to be a competitor in this year’s national pageant. I was born in Alberta, but I am a Saskatchewan girl at heart. I live on a quiet, beautiful farm with dogs, chickens, and over a hundred sheep.

Some of the Saskatchewan delegates

Miss Teenage Saskatchewan Provincial Pageant was my first pageant experience. Upon arriving I realized that what I read about pageant didn’t compare to the real thing. For example, I didn’t expect to make so many new and supportive friends. I also have to thank our choreographer,
Meagan; the previous Saskatchewan titleholders; and Miss Teenage Canada-World 2013, Jill Martin, for the amazing experience and show.

The pageant also reminded of how grateful I am of having supportive family, friends, and community. My mother and sister encouraged from the start of the process, I was hesitant to join but they told me I could do it because they believed in me. Right before the pageant I was so nervous, but my Dad shared some loving advice; he said, “Be yourself, and the judges will love you.”

Cuties in downtown Saskatoon

The MTC pageant has changed me, but not into someone new. I feel like I am becoming the person I am meant to be—I am becoming me. Having a crown and sash is a responsibility, there is a lot planning done in order to attend my appearances and follow through on commitments. It is also a privilege because it has enabled me to involve myself in causes I wouldn’t have been able to do prior to getting my title. Personally, my favourite part of being Miss Teenage Western Saskatchewan is putting smiles on strangers’— especially children’s— faces.

A beautiful family I met at the Ronald McDonald House

My favourite experiences so far have been those with families. On Mother’s Day, I visited the Ronald McDonald House in Saskatoon. I was incredibly touched when I spoke to the families in the house. I also enjoyed listening to the volunteers’ stories about how they became involved. I love being a ‘princess’ to kids. It reminds that I must be the best role model I can be for them.

I look forward to updating you on my
upcoming events. Until next post!

Love,

Audrey
