Hi everyone, my name is Emily and I am Miss Teenage Kelowna 2015! I just want to say that I could not be more ecstatic, inspiring youth to follow their dreams and live life to the fullest is something I’ve always strived to do and winning a title is a huge leap toward this goal.
I remember the moment I found out. The feeling I had inside was like no other I had experienced in my lifetime. I wanted to scream, cry and jump up and down all at once. I could feel my heart pounding inside of my chest as the feeling of butterflies tickled my stomach. I couldn’t help but think of the road ahead. I had so much to do in so little time, but I was prepared to face any challenges that my come my way. I’m getting way ahead of myself though, first let me tell you a little about me and my life.
I was born in the lovely Kelowna British Columbia, located in the rolling hills of the Okanagan Valley. At home I live with my mom, dad, brother, and kitten. I enjoy volunteering at a local hospital and having fun with friends in my spare time. From a young age I have loved being on stage, mainly because in person I can be a little more on the quiet side, and being on stage gives me an outlet to express myself through. I always had a passion for being on stage, whether it be for a school play, a speech or to emcee our school’s talent show, but never did I picture myself participating in a pageant let alone being awarded the title of Miss Teenage Kelowna! Its an honour to be a title holder, and I hope to make the most of my year long reign.
This year will be eventful, motivational, and life-changing. I wish to make the most of this incredible journey and hope you will follow me throughout the year. I will post regularly, updating you on events I will be attending and challenges I face on the path to hopefully becoming the next Miss Teenage Canada.
