LIGHTS! CAMERA! PAGEANT!
In 14 days I will be heading to Toronto for the Miss Teenage Canada National pageant! I am so excited!
During the pageant I will be talking about my platform. What is a platform? A platform is something you stand for, something you promote, believe in, and want to help in the community.
Can you guess what my platform is? Hint: it is mentioned in the previous blog post. (You can go back and cheat but to save you some time I will tell you in the next few sentences.) Yep, that’s right! Wow, amazing guess! My platform is the importance of family.
What I’ve learned over the last few years through my own experience and by seeing others, is that family is consistent. While facing a struggle in our life, no matter what it may be, you can always look to your family for guidance. I am a strong believer in the power of a family. How love, kindness, and support is the key to overcome your life struggles. It’s hard to face anything alone. With family, even though you may fight from time to time, you can face it head on.
How do I promote my platform?
Some of you may have heard about the Jennifer A Cutler foundation. This foundation is family based. Our main goal is to send a family with either the mother or father going through cancer treatments away on vacation. This way they can gain wonderful memories and maintain their connection.
I also do a lot of work based around Mental Health. I am a member of the Mental Health Committee, where we bring awareness to mental health issues. I believe that a lot oftimes families lose a connection with each other because they have a lack of understanding with a mental illness. The most common one you hear about is anxiety. By giving more and more people information about how to help someone with anxiety, family members are more likely to help instead of being unsure of what to do. I speak out about mental health often and did a few speeches with the Lion’s Club. The Mental Health Committees goal is to create a safe community where mental health patients are treated properly.
As Miss Teenage Avalon I got to attend a lot of events. I got to go to some that helped promoted families like the Kids and Family Expo. What I loved seeing was when everybody came out to support the cause or to just have fun. Definitely the best part of the job!
