Hello Everyone! Well it looks like I have landed in Toronto for Nationals! After lots of preparation and packing I’m glad that this day is finally here. Five months ago I was crowned Miss Teenage Coquitlam and I would have never seen myself compete for Miss Teenage Canada with over 75 other amazing girls. I was up at 3:15am to get ready for my flight and now I’m ready for a long nap… just kidding! I’ll be posting daily blogs while I’m away and keep you all posted on what I’m doing and how amazing the experience is! I would like to take the time to thank every single person who has donated, supported me and to those who have been here with me on the experience since I applied for this pageant. I would like to thank my mum, for being by my side 24/7 and helping me through the stresses. I would like to thank my dad, for being my support system and helping make everything for this pageant possible. I would like to thank every single one of my family members for their unconditional love and support and I am so grateful to be blessed with such an amazing family. I would like to thank every single one of my friends for their support, without you guys I wouldn’t be able to get through anything. I would like to thank my best friend Sarah for ALL her support and love and coming out to cheer me on, 14 years of friendship that I have been blessed with. I would like to thank my boyfriend Adam because he encouraged me to join the pageant and helped boost my confidence and thank you for coming out and supporting me and cheering me on. LAST BUT NOT LEAST! I would like to thank every single one of you who has liked me on Facebook, Instagram, any type of social media and those who have donated, attending my fundraising events and to those who are on this journey with me; without any of support I’ve gotten I wouldn’t be this far and I am beyond grateful for the love and support everyone has given me! I hope to not let you all down and stay tuned for post this week while I’m away at nationals!
lots of love, melissa
