Finally the day has come! Today me and my family arrived in Toronto for the Miss Teenage Canada pageant! I’ve been waiting for this opportunity for months and am so excited to get the chance to compete and meet so many wonderful people! Today we woke up bright and early to catch our flight to Toronto. Many people, including me and my family were worried about flying due to Covid 19, but the airline that we travelled with, Westjet, did a wonderful job at keeping everyone safe by encouraging people to wear masks, maintaining social distancing when possible, and by consistently keeping everything clean. Knowing these things, I was able to enjoy my flight with ease, knowing I was in safe hands. So far, I have only seen little bits and pieces of Toronto, but from what I have seen, this city is absolutely beautiful! The drive down to Barrie was filled with views of amazing scenery. We ended the night by having dinner with one of my fellow pageant sisters, Janaya Iverson, who is currently Miss Jr. Teen Northern Alberta! During my trip to Toronto I have met so many kind individuals from Flight Attendants, to Pilots, and people in the food services industry. This day has been surreal and I cannot wait to see what tomorrow has in store for me! I will be blogging my entire experience from start to finish, so make sure to keep checking my blog every day for the inside scoop! MTC 2020, here we go!
