Day Trip : August 6th, 2015

11846315_10206018475973445_136083310_n  My experience at Richtree Taco Truck…
Today, after a fantastic day at the Bowmanville Zoo we got the chance to have lunch in a beautiful mall(The Toronto Eaton Center). We got the chance to eat at Richtree Taco Truck. When I first saw the truck I was thrilled and so excited to eat tacos or burritos. The Truck was looking amazing, a blue truck with awesome servers who was very helpful to help me with my food choice. The food choices were either chicken, beef and fish in a taco or a burrito there was also one for vegetarians. The tacos and burritos all had awesome names that I can’t remember but it was pretty cool and different. With the help of my amazing server I chose the chicken burrito and a sprite. The service was very fast, I was amazed they were awesome to serve 82 girls.

My chicken burrito…

It wasn’t only the truck that was looking amazing and the servers that were awesome, it was also the Chicken Burrito.
The chicken burrito was a little bit spicy but the taste of the burrito with all the vegetables, sauce and rice was delicious! My burrito was so delicious and fresh, it filled me up quickly but don’t worry, it was amazing!
For next time I will definitely taste the fish burritos it looked so good. Thank you again for your delicious burritos and your great service I enjoyed it!!

New Brunswick Day in Canada

On the first Monday of August, New Brunswick Day is a holiday in the Canadian province of New Brunswick. People come together to strengthen their local communities by celebrating their achievements, history, culture and landscape. The New Brunswick flag is raised in some communities on this day.

Background

The province of New Brunswick has been populated by First Nations communities for around 6000 years. In the 1600s and 1700s, the area was colonized by the French and later the British. In 1867, New Brunswick was one of the four provinces, which formed the Canadian Confederation. New Brunswick Day has been a holiday since 1976 and the New Brunswick Day awards were introduced in 1991.

Raise your flag and be proud! Happy New Brunswick Day!

Thank You !

Awareness to Bullying

Did you know it’s now it’s been eight years since Pink Shirt Day started, that was in 2007. Two Nova Scotia high school students organized a school protest to wear the colour pink, they stood up for a grade 9 boy and fellow classmate, who was bullied for wearing a pink coloured t-shirt to school.

Even after eighth year bullying still continues to be a major problem in schools, workplaces, homes, and over the Internet. Every seven minutes someone is bullied on a playground in Canada, according to bullying.org. Recent survey found cyberbullying surpassed drugs and alcohol as the top concern among Canadian parents.

Why is this so important to me?

I am very passionate about helping others who are struggling each day because they are being bullied. As I know all too well what bullying does! One would think that starting high school should the greatest moments; it wasn’t that great for me. After being laughed at, been called names every day, I started feeling like they wanted me to feel, worthless! My self-esteem went down; my immune system was so week that I would always be sick. I didn’t care anymore, I just wanted to curl up and stay there, I didn’t want to go to school anymore, my school marks were going down. I just wanted to give up. Then finally I wrote a letter to my mom. Today, I can proudly say that letter save me! “I love you and together we will get through this!” were her words!

11836996_10154083876259745_1708748476_oToday, I am very involved in the community. I volunteer in several charitable events and I have a strong desire to learn all about my culture. Last year, I organised a pageants for young girls’ ages 10 to 12 years old to help raise money for Miss Teenage Canada. In the pageant one of my activities was say NO to bullying. I searched the internet, gathered some information and gave handout to the parents and kids on the first day. They were links of resources; help lines and explanations different types of bullying. One day during our practices I gave them all pink shirts and they were to write a positive word and decorate their T-shirt any way they choose to. On pageant day, they wore proudly their pink shirt and fashioned their work of art, they were shining! I was so proud of them! It was a great experience for me and the girls. My goal is to help the youth to build their self-esteem and to make a difference.

I believe that through my own experience I will help someone, through my story and life path I want to choose. I want to continue to encourage the youth, motivate them to follow their dreams. I want them to believe in themselves, because I believe in them. To be proud of who you are!

My message…

If you fall down, you get right back up!
If you make a mistake, you learn from them.
If you feel down, there is always someone who will lift you up.
You are Special and you will succeed.
Don’t give up and follow your Dream no matter what their dreams are
I want them to believe in themselves and encourage them to follow their dreams.
Dreams do come true if you believe!

Thank you !

Canada
It has been voted the best country in the world to live in for the past 3 years in a row by the United Nations.  It consists of ten provinces and three territories, the newest territories is Nunavut.

Canada is the greatest country in the world!  Why do I think so?  Well there are several reasons, here are a few that I appreciate the most.

The seasons
I believe Canada is a great country because of its beauty, for its natural resources, for the endless lakes and rivers, the great mountains and the different climates. I love having four beautiful seasons; I enjoy and appreciate the gift of Mother Nature.

Winter – The sun shines through the trees covered with snow; like million sparkling miniatures diamonds.
Spring The apple trees are blossoming and the perfume of the lilacs and flowers are breath taken.
Summer The warm weather, the sun is shining and it’s time for vacation.
Autumn (fall) Time to harvest the fields, time to pick fruit, the vegetables and time to feast with the family.

Our Services
In Canada, we have access to several service such social assistance programs, affordable housing, health care, and a strong government that helps its people.

Education system
iaslkfhdjl We are very privileged to have free primary and secondary education and subsidized post-secondary studies. Canadian universities and colleges have a strong international reputation for high quality.

 

Safe & Secure
Canadians have a voice, have a right to vote and have a right to be safe and secure.a'ojfkskfa4
In Canada, we have the RCMP that protects, the Community policing, strict gun control laws, and a fair justice system make Canada safe and secure for everyone. Crime rates are among the lowest in the world, and continue to decline.

 

What I love the most is Canada’s Multiculturalism and diversity!

r.bnkbvmnCanada is filled with beautiful and unique culture from around the world. Now many people from many nation come together to make this country special and unique.  Born as an Acadian/Aboriginal, I am a proud Canadian, very proud of my country and my culture. I have a continuous desire to learn all about my country Canada and my heritage.  I love that our country encourages everyone to retain their unique culture. Living with and accepting different cultures help us understand each other.  Years ago, people were afraid to speak their language; today Canada accepts and encourages many cultures to thrive in society.
Be proud of who you are and speaking your language!

Rights and Freedoms
In Canada everyone is equal.  Everyone has a right to be heard. These rights are guaranteed through our Canadian Constitution and the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms.  Everyone has a right to preserve their own culture and we must also respect each other’s right to do the same.  Canada is a great place to live!
We have a great country. “I am proud to be a Canadian!”

Thank you, Merci, Wela’lin !

Hello! Welcome to my first Blog!

My name is Shelly and I am so honored to say that I am your new Miss Teenage New Brunswick 2015.
I am so pleased to be representing my beautiful province of New Brunswick at the nationals, Miss Teenage Canada 2015 which will be held in Toronto Ontario this August.

I’m 17 years old and I am a 2015 graduate of CSC LaFontaine high school in Néguac NB.
I recently organised a pageant for a fundraising event for the graduates of CSC LaFontaine 2015, which turned out to be a great success. During this past year I also volunteered with the grade 3 students to help them improve their reading skills.

I will be continuing my studies in policing and correctional training. My goal is to become a member of the RCMP, to have a role in ensuring the safety and security of those in the communities and working with Youth Crime Prevention.

I come from a multicultural family. My father is acadian and my mother is aboriginal. I have a very talented brother who loves music and I am also proud to be an aunt to my little nephew Leo.

I am very proud of my heritage and I have a continuous desire to learn all about my cultures.  Whether it’s wearing my red, white, blue and yellow star or wearing my regalia, you can find me every August 15th celebrating the Acadian day or dancing in Pow Wows. I enjoy celebrating my Acadian culture by participating in parades and singing and dancing in the “Tintamar”.

It is very apparent that I have a passion for dancing. I have been dancing since I was 4 years old, and I have discovered my new passion in 2009, the Fancy Shawl Dancing. The Fancy Shawl dancing is a traditional aboriginal dance for women. The women’s fancy shawl dance represents the opening of a cocoon when the butterfly emerges.
You can find me dancing the Traditional Fancy Shawl every occasion I have. I have been invited to several events around the province to share my wonderful dancing “fancy shawl” and at various schools throughout the province during the heritage week with my group the “Wegatusgk Dancer”.  I am also a coach and a mentor to the youth in my community and am also teaching the young girls the traditional dance. I want to continue to encourage the youth, motivates them to be proud of who they are!

I am also very implicated in my community, by helping out in various charitable events such as, IWK, Relay for Life, for the three fallen members (Taking back the neighborhood block party) and organizing fundraising events such as talents shows and pageants for the schools in my community.  I also had the opportunity to be judge in several pageants in my province.

My goal as Miss Teenage New Brunswick is to be a role model for the youth not only in my community but to all the youth everywhere! I want them to believe in themselves and encourage them to follow their dreams, no matter what their dreams are.
Dreams do come true if you believe, as my dream is coming true!

Hope you enjoyed reading about me and hope you continue to follow me during this wonderful journey of Miss Teenage New Brunswick 2015.

Thank you, Merci, Wela’lin !

The reason I started competition in pageants is kind of a funny story. It was June, school was wrapping up and the meetings for the annual pageant in my community, Miss Westmorland County, were just beginning. To be perfectly honest, the pageant wasn’t something I was overly enthused about because I’d always seen pageants as being degrading. A few short years ago my opinion of pageants was created solemnly by the stereotype of superficial girls fighting for the title of who can look the best in their swimsuit bikini. I hadn’t really had much exposure to these types of events, so I had no way of knowing what they were about. My peers and my mom pushed me to participate because I’ve always loved performing as a singer. So I decided I would try it out, if nothing else it would give me singing practice and the chance to volunteer more in my community. Right? But was I ever wrong. I was out running one evening and my phone buzzed so I stopped to answer it. It was one of my classmates, screaming through the phone hysterically, telling me if I didn’t arrive to practice in 15 minutes I wouldn’t be able to participate in the event.  I knew how much my mother wanted me to get involved, so I ran back across the village filled with uncertainty and arrive at my first practice. Drenched in sweat and completely out of breath I had no idea how much that little decision would change everything. Performing had always been something that came naturally to me but it was natural in a sense of singing, not public speaking. With every practice I found the stereotype of pageantry i’d held begin to fade. The girls I was competing with starting becoming a little family and I found myself becoming more confident. Pulling away the layers I had hid behind for years and showing everyone my true outgoing personality. I had never felt more at home in my entire life on stage and I must have done something right because I took the honorable title of Miss Westmorland County that year. After the pageant, I realized that I may have found something I could excel at and wanted to continue my journey. I applied for Miss Teen Maritime International and was accepted on the spot. I looked at this event as a growing experience. I never in a million years imagined I’d take on the title of Miss Teen Maritime International, but I did and it still astonishes me. My mother’s reaction to my winning was by far the most rewarding. I brought her to tears that evening because she couldn’t believe her daughter that used to be overweight and shy had become a role model for the entire East Coast. The point I’m trying to put across is that I had never imagined this for myself. When I was younger I had no self worth because of years of bullying; pageantry helped rebuild the self confidence I’d lost. Sometimes, when I reflect on the past few years, and the events that have happened I wonder if that day, I hadn’t gone for a run, hadn’t picked up my phone, if I would be who I am, and where I am today. It’s the small decisions we make on a daily basis that determine our fate.  Stepping out of your element can help you determine who you are.
