With this being my first blog post I wanted to introduce myself a little bit, so you can get to know me 🙂
I have lived in Wabush, NL for 18 years. It is a small mining town on the west side of Labrador. There is a population of about 2000 people living in Wabush. We have long cold winters and short rainy summers. It is an unbelievably supportive community, with lots of love. I feel very fortunate to have grown up in a town where you know everyone and everywhere you go people are always so friendly. We enjoy many outdoor activities here, personally snowmobiling and hunting/fishing are my favourite, I started to fish when I was 2 years old with my dad, and have loved it every since! But, we have many others great outdoor activities such as downhill and cross country skiing, snowboarding, hiking, dirt biking, and sliding for the little kids!
I’m very involved in my community and participate on 3 sports teams; volleyball, swimming and soccer. I’ve had roles in local musicals and I also, volunteer with various organizations like the local sports clubs, the Labrador West Winter Carnival, raising money for the Ronald McDonald House, Canada Day Celebrations, event parades and much more, my grandmother taught me at a very young age how important volunteering is and how giving back to your community is priceless.
Traveling is a passion of mine, and I some day plan to backpack the world! I have visited 7 provinces, 3 states, 8 different countries and 3 continents, I have been around North America, South America and Europe! I absolutely love experiencing new cultures and trying new things! I hope to some day have the opportunity to travel and volunteer with Projects Abroad, and help build houses for less fortunate, volunteer at orphaniages and working with animals.
This year, I graduated from Menihek High School as a French Immersion student. I have been accepted to Mount Royal University for this coming fall to complete a bachelor of buisness, once I am finished I aspired to become a marketing manager. You may wonder why I chose this as my occupation, well for many years I have organized events such as a local pageant, fashion shows, and have promoted for many different businesses and events, I realized it’s something I’m good at and love to do, and I believe it is very important to always enjoy what you are doing for a job.
I am very excited to be representing Labrador at Miss World Canada. I hope to help raise awareness for females about body image. I believe it’s very important to be confident in your own skin! Pageants are a very powerful experience that provide so many positive opportunities.
I hope you all continue to follow me on my journey! I’ll be giving more blog updates in the next few weeks so make sure you keep an eye out for them!
