The Miss Teenage Canada pageant has finally begun and it has been incredible so far! From Breakfast Television to free products, I feel very lucky to be a part of this action-packed week.
My favourite part of the week, so far, was getting to know my roommate Meghan Breckon. We have connected right off the bat and it feels like we have became very close over the past few days. Although we are different in many ways, me being a poetry lover and Meghan a dancer, we found common ground right away with our “go-getter” personalities. Michelle Weswaldi did an amazing job pairing us and should consider opening a match-making company!
The first evening of the pageant was the welcoming party, where the delegates had a chance to mingle and meet some of our sponsors. It was interesting when I first walked in and saw the booth for Motive Cosmetics, I had been following the company for over a year on Instagram and adore their products! I went over to their booth right away and definitely acting like a “fan girl” asking them about products used in certain looks I liked. Each of the girls were generously given a fun nail polish as well:
Another sponsor was Hi-Tec Canada who donated a VERY comfy pair of sandals. It is definitely nice to change into them after wearing heels for a few days as well. Check out a pic:
Golden Goddesses sponsored the pageant as well, we were all given discounts on getting spray tans and lash extensions. We were even offered massages as well!
On Sunday the Miss Teenage Canada delegates had a long day! It started out relaxing having our makeup and hair professionally done by Motives Cosmetics. I was very pleased with how it all turned out! Afterwards, I had my video interview and it was definitely fun. We prepared three questions to say in front of a camera and were also recorded smiling and saying your name and where we are from. If I am lucky to make the top 20 you will be able to check it out! We had our photoshoot afterwards and the photographer was great since he helped you feel more comfortable and just enjoy the experience. Lastly I completed my favourite part of the pageant, the interview! I had the chance to meet and show my personality to a panel of judges who were incredibly kind.
On Monday we had a segment on Breakfast Television, so of course, we had to be up bright and early! Actually it isn’t too bright out at 4am… Although it was an early morning it was worth it being on television and listening to the interesting stories of a few girls in the pageant.
Afterwards we were taught beauty tips by Schwarzkopf Professional, we learned how to go from look-to-look.
