This weekend marks the end of my reign as Miss Teenage Saskatoon. This is so bittersweet, because I truly never want it to end. I knew from the moment I was accepted to compete in regionals that this would be such an amazing experience for me, yet I couldn’t have imagined just HOW great this past year would be. I have grown so much this year, and gained so many useful skills – public speaking, hosting events, and fundraising just to name a few. My confidence levels have soared, as well. I finally feel beautiful in my own skin, and I’ve learned how to love everything else about me, too. All of the aspects of my personality, (even the ones others may consider weird,) are what make me who I am, and I wouldn’t trade any of it for the world. The most important things I’ve gained from the pageant are the friendships and strong bonds with my fellow pageant sisters, along with the many other people I’ve had the pleasure of meeting along the way.
To all of the new delegates and future delegates: this really is the experience of a lifetime. Make the most out of your reign; cherish the memories, appreciate all of your loved ones that support you along the way, but most importantly – have fun. You will always look back on these memories and remember what a blast it all was. Contrary to popular belief, it takes a lot of hard work to compete in pageants, but it’s well worth the blood, sweat, and tears.
Even though this chapter of my life is now over, I will always be proud to say that I was Miss Teenage Saskatoon 2016. This is just the tip of the iceberg for me, and I can’t wait to continue sharing my journey with you all!
Thank you all so much for the love and support you’ve given me throughout this whirlwind year. I can’t express how much it means to me to have such amazing people in my life!
