Hello everyone!

Wishing you a beautiful Tuesday morning here in Barrie, Ontario! Yesterday was our first day here so I just wanted to share a little bit about what it looked like! I had such an amazing time and I will forever be grateful for all the inspiring girls I met (who now are for sure my pageant sisters!).

The morning started pretty bright and early with a 4:30 AM wake up! My parents and I then drove to Calgary to catch our plane to Toronto. On my way here, my stomach for sure filled with butterflies and I was absolutely nervous as I simply didn’t know what to expect or what this week could bring! After meeting the girls and settling in a little bit, I soon found out there was nothing to be nervous about. Miss Teenage Canada is such a welcoming place to everyone and they are extremely supportive and passionate about girls’ individuality.

Day 1, more so like night one was a fun PJ party! All the delegates got to eat pizza and cake, in our PJs of course and just had the opportunity to get to know one another as well as introduce ourselves. Some of the girls had little gift bags and they were so thoughtful, so thank you 🙂

MTC also provides us with an awesome bag of goodies which we call the #MTCSWAGBAG. Thanks to MTC for the kind gifts as well!

After dinner, we all returned to our rooms and got prepared for the next day! Day 2 consists of a photo and video shoot. We will be doing introduction videos of ourselves and all 29 delegates for the final night (Saturday’s) show. Stay tuned for that!

As I now prepare for day 2, I am super excited and can’t wait to see how today goes! Having so much fun so far and I am really lucky to be here.

Xo, Sophia Lia
