So I’m leaving for Miss Teenage Canada bright and early tommorow, and I thought some thank you’s were in order. I want to thank all of my amazing friends and family that have supported me so much; whether it is sharing posts or reaching out or donating. I want to thank all of my MTC pageant sisters for supporting me so much. From one of my first projects #essentialworkersdeservecrowns you were ready to help anyway you could.

Thank you to Janaya Iverson for everything you did to help with my arts auction and the lovely dress worn in this picture which was given to by you–you are the epitome of a pageant girl and I’m glad to call you my friend!

I want to thank Mahta Ghareai for her endless support from my very first MTC project, to coming together for my interview series just last week. You have made me feel so confident and supported and I can’t wait to hopefully meet you in real life!

I want to thank the current MTC Emma for being so open and helpful to all of my projects, for being genuine and supportive to all the contestants and epitomizing what Miss Teenage Canada is!

I would like to thank my sponsors, @a.raebeauty @thedressloungeyeg @keylimeathleticwear for helping me out–get ready to be tagged a lot this week!

Thank you to Angeline Macdonald and the team at Bells and Bows who got me my DREAM gown!

I would also love to thank my amazing pageant coach Lisa Harriman Joseph for inspiring me so much during this journey and helping me get prepared, you are so knowledgeable and patient and kind and the perfect mentor.

I am beyond excited to meet you all tomorrow, and hopefully have the most rewarding, memorable week of my life! #mtc2020
