Happy New Year everyone :D
I know it has been a while since I have blogged (the last time was the day before finals night? Wow. Time goes by fast!), and since it is the end of the year, also soon to be my end of reign, I shall give you some small updates!
Woohoo! Today we woke up even later at 9:30am! Tonight was also the talent gala, where I could finally see my parents (I really miss them)! We started the day again with rehearsals and tomorrow’s show is going to be great, I can tell you now!
We got fitted with our opening number dress soon, which was white and had a lace detailing. Since we will be dancing to “Wings,” I thought white lace dresses were perfect, because we would look like angels on stage!
Rehearsals, rehearsals, rehearsals, and PRELIMS! Today we woke up at 8:30am, and we were extremely thankful! We also had our breakfast delivered to our rooms, which included some very filling pancakes and yummy yogurt!
We had a full morning of rehearsals and it extended until 3pm. We have almost the whole show down, and after many many many practices our dance numbers look great too! I am so excited to show it to all of you at finals!
We finally had the chance to sleep in (sort of), as today we were able to wake up at 7:30am to get ready for breakfast at Grenadier High Park again!
Words cannot describe my appreciation to everyone who has helped me during my reign as Miss Teenage Burnaby 2014! I am now at Nationals in Toronto (HOOOOORAAH) and without all of you, my journey would not have been as successful! In this post I will try my best to thank everyone (this is a near impossible task because there are so many of you but I will attempt it) and do a brief summary of the volunteer work I’ve done so far. I am proud to be representing Burnaby, and wish me luck for the next ten days!
Once again we had the chance to go on TV! Today we actually did two segments, and went on the Global News, in both their local and their national broadcast. During the show, names of girls were drawn out of a bowl to answer questions. I think everyone did great, considering that they answered questions similar to the on-stage questions given to TOP 5 finalists! Good job girls and way to go to show Canada that we are beautiful inside and out!
The day started as early as 3:30am, where we were all groggy but exhilarated, because of a a very good reason: we were going to Breakfast TV Toronto! It was my first time on a set, and it was beyond cool to go behind the scenes! The hosts and organizers made us feel real comfortable in front of the camera, and thank you for such a great broadcast!
Today was the day where we had our official Miss Teenage Canada video shoot, photo shoot, and interview with the judges! It was exhilarating, fun, and a touch of anxious nerves, but overall I had a great day!
I’M IN TORONTO!!! I am still sooooo excited about this amazingly thrilling day (yes, this over-usage of adjectives is necessary), where I finally got to meet all of the stunning Miss Teenage Canada 2014 delegates!
