Imagine this, you’re on stage with your hair done perfectly, you’re wearing an outfit that you absolutely love, even though it was little too expensive for your parents liking, you feel the tickle on your checks from heat of the lights as you walk across stage, and you smile big, proud of yourself for getting this far. The audience is watching you as you gracefully enter the center of the stage and you don’t feel embarrassed or stage fright, you feel good in this moment. Others join you on stage, people you only met just a few days ago, but now they’re some of your closest friends.
The nerve wrecking moment approaches as you hold hands with your new friends. They announce the forth, third, second runner up, and now it’s time for the winner. Even if your name isn’t called, you couldn’t be happier because the person who won is now a lifelong friend. You hug and cheer with them.
This moment will always be one of the best feelings for me. I’ve competed in two pageants already and both times I was proud and filled with joy for the winners, Chanel and Jessica.
After my second pageant that was in October 2017, my dad handed me the flowers he got for me and said this was the last time. As if he wasn’t getting used to the idea of being a pageant dad.The joke was on him because we weren’t thinking the same thing.
A couple months ago, I applied for Miss Teenage Canada. When I told my dad, he simple said “Good Luck.” quietly hoping that I wouldn’t actually get in. Well, the joke is still on him because I got accepted and won the title of Miss Teenage Avalon!
I think he’s getting more and more into his title of pageant dad because he planned a road trip to go up to Toronto with me in August so that I can compete in the competition. Although he’s still saying this is my last pageant. He could be right. If he is, then that means I need your help more than ever, because if I win the title Miss Teenage Canada, how can dear old dad turn me down when I want to enter again in the next couple of years?
I would love to have your support on this journey to Miss Teenage Canada National Pageant. Please comment, like my social media pages, invite me to your events, or private message me through Facebook or email any suggestions or things you that you would like me to promote.
