My experience as Miss Teenage Alberta… It all started on February 24th when I was crowned! From then to now it has been a whirlwind of events and fun on top of dancing at Ballet Camrose 32 hours a week, student teaching baby ballet, volunteering, and going to school full time still managing honours. I did 55 events, and appearances all over Canada in 4 months representing my title Miss Teenage Alberta. Here are some of the highlights I did in that time…
