Well, today was the first full day of the pageant, and I can already tell it’s going to be a great week! Last night was the welcome party, where we got to meet all the other delegates and have a rundown of the week and the day ahead. The room was buzzing with excitement while everyone went around introducing themselves and making new friends! It was so nice to finally meet the girls I’ve been following on social media for the past few months and knowing how close we’re going to be by the end of the week. Later, we were given goody bags full of gifts from our amazing sponsors, including some makeup from MAC Cosmetics! I don’t usually splurge on expensive makeup, so it was a huge treat. We then went back to our rooms and got some much-needed sleep for the next day.
This morning, we were up bright and early for breakfast, soon after that, we were escorted to the hair and makeup rooms to prepare for our photo shoot, video shoot, and interview! I went through fairly quickly and was the first to finish both my photo and video shoot. While I waited in my room to be called to my interview, I was given an absolutely delicious lunch from Clean Meals! It was the perfect portion size for me, and it was under 500 calories! When I heard it all food was locally sourced and containing hormone free proteins, I was in love. Anyone who’s talked to me for the last month or so know that I have been eating super healthy and staying away from processed foods, so this was perfect. During my preparation for Miss Teenage Canada, I’ve found a love for being healthy, and while I do indulge in a treat once in a while, a healthy lifestyle is still so important. For lunch, I had pasta and beans, and as I write this I am currently eating their roast beef and potatoes.
After everyone was finished up their photo shoots and interviews, we began rehearsals, which lasted for a few hours, in which we managed to finish the opening number! I love the routine we were given, but after that my feet are pretty sore. Now, we’re all back in our rooms to relax, unwind, and prepare for tomorrow! I’m already feeling tired, but there’s still four days left to go!
Thank you so much to Clean Meals for providing our delicious lunches and dinners and to all the other sponsors of Miss Teenage Canada 2018! Stay tuned for more updates!
