Day 4 started with taking a bus to rehearsals where we learned the choreography for our swimsuit number on Sunday and we practised our walks.
After rehearsals we went straight into hair and makeup. My hair was done by Ramiro (@ramiro_makeupking) and my makeup was done by Nikki (@mesmerizingbeautybynikki).
Then it was time for the preliminary show! we started with evening gown. Next up was the swimsuit competition, we wore our Hot Water Swimwear and Vangelo heels. Lastly was the talent competition, I preformed a flamenco dance which is a traditional dance from Spain. I decided to do this style because I went to Spain for ten months as an exchange student.
After a midnight snack it is time to get some rest for another big day.
I have arrived in Toronto! I had an early morning flight leaving from Moncton and I waited at the airport until 1pm and then we hoped on a shuttle bus.
We got off the shuttle at Centennial Place Residence where we will be staying for the week. I love that we have our own rooms but still have roomies because of the shared kitchen and living room. I am rooming with Emma, Miss Teenage Eastern Ontario and Jesseca, Miss Teenage Langley B.C.
Afterwards we went to the PJ Pizza Party! It was a lot of fun and I got to meet all the girls and I am excited to know more about them. After pizza we had a cake, it was vanilla and chocolat and it was delicious!
We received our numbers for the week after the party which we will be wearing at all times. I am Number 16
My day started at 7am to get ready for the day and of course we had to take a roommate selfie before breakfast.
Next up was hair and makeup. My Hair was done by Jen from Modern Makeup and my makeup was done by Janvi. Thank you both so much I love my hair and makeup!
Once hair and makeup was all done I went to interview, to a photo shoot and to a video shoot. They were all a lot of fun and I can not wait to see how the pictures and the videos turned out.
Next up was rehearsal, we practised our walks and part of what we will be doing the final night. After I took selfies with some of my new friends!
To end the day I had a really good chicken penne with alfredo sauce and we received our opening number dresses from Soho Girls and our shoes from Vangelo. The dress and the shoes are gorgeous and I can not wait to wear them Friday at preliminaries!
In this blog post I want to talk about my sponsor Davidson’s Funeral Services. They are a family owned and operated business in Miramichi since 1957. they provide caring professional funeral services and support to families in need.
They have always treated my family very well in difficult times and we appreciate all they have done for us over the years.
The Children’s Wish Foundation is the official charity of Miss Teenage Canada. They are dedicated to granting heartfelt wishes to children with a life-threatening illness.
A wish is very important to a child because it can make the pain and discomfort of the illness more bearable and planning a dream is very exciting and often times, it has a dramatic effect on their healing. A Wish that comes true is a sign of hope.
Last year, they granted over 1,000 wishes!
All the delegates are tasked with raising a minimum of $400 to help grant wishes. I decided to host a yard/bake sale over two weekends and I also sold tickets on a baby quilt. I collected donations from family and friends and had two huge yard sales and a bake sale.
After my second yard sale, all the clothes that did not go went in the clothing donation bin in support of Children’s Wish.
I also attended a princess tea party for Children’s Wish in Fredericton. I loved handing out bags and greeting all the little princesses as they entered the hall. Their reactions to the Disney princesses was my favourite part!
I am incredibly proud to
be representing the province of New Brunswick at Miss Teenage Canada! In this
blog post, I will be sharing with you all that makes New Brunswick unique.
I love the beautiful nature that can be found
all over the province. Our provincial tree is the balsam fir and our
provincial flower is the purple violet. In fact, over 80% of New Brunswick is
covered in forest.
Being a maritime
province, fishing is very important here. Some of the popular festivals in New Brunswick
are the Shediac Lobster Festival and the Campbellton’s Salmon Festival.
We are also the only officially bilingual province in Canada. I love being raised bilingual because I can understand more of my surroundings. My friends and I will often go back and forth between French and English. In New Brunswick, about one third of the population identifies as Acadian, including myself. I love celebrating Acadian day on August 15th.
I hope this helped you
learn a little about my beautiful home!
name is Farrah and I am Miss Teenage New Brunswick 2019. I am 18 years old. To help
you learn more about me I will be answering a few questions.
What are your goals for this year?
My goals for
2019 are to make amazing memories at Miss Teenage Canada, help reduce summer
reading loss by working with cradle to career Miramichi and to have a great start
to my first year of university in pre-med.
What makes you laugh?
make me laugh the most, we are always joking and making word puns to make each other
When you have free time what do you enjoy doing?
During my (very little) free time, I like to watch television shows like The Amazing Race Canada, and I like to read. My favourite author is Dan Brown.
What is your favourite family tradition?
long as I can remember my dad’s huge Acadian family love to have big gatherings.
When I was young, we had Christmas supper with over 60 family members. Now we
have a summer party with over 80 people. We always have good food and great
music to sing and dance to.
How would you describe your own personality?
say my personality is very confident; I have always loved being onstage singing,
dancing and competing in pageants. Adventurousness is another word to describe me;
I am always open to try new things and go to new places. Another part of my
personality is compassion; I love to give back to my community as a volunteer,
as a junior leader for a girl guide unit as well as a reading tutor.
What language would you like to learn?
I am already
fluent in English, French and Spanish. The next language I would like to learn
is Mandarin because a lot of people in the world speak mandarin and it is a
language very different than English, I love a challenge. I already know a few
words in mandarin because I love to watch Chinese television.
What are you proud of yourself for?
I have worked very hard throughout high school, and I am very proud to
have been awarded a full scholarship to Université de Moncton to follow my
dream of becoming a dentist
If you won the lottery, how would you spend the money?
would buy my mother a corvette (she made me promise that…lol) and of course we’d
go on a shoe shopping spree, but when we get back; I would love to give back to
my community and to other communities around the world. Because post secondary
is so expensive, I would also like to start a scholarship program for students
who need financial help achieving their dreams.
What experiences have impacted your life thus far?
Competing in my first pageant has changed my life, I have made many lifelong friendships through pageantry and I am excited to make new friends this summer. Another experience that changed my life was in 2016 when I became an exchange student, I learned a lot about the world and about different cultures, it has opened my eyes to the world.
If you could meet anyone dead or alive who would it be?
I would love
to meet Cassie De Pecol. She was the first woman and fastest person to travel
to all 196 sovereign nations. I bet she has many amazing stories to share and I
would love to hear all about them.
What is your favourite childhood memory?
memory from my childhood would have to be when I visited my Grampy and he
surprised me with my own pony. Her name was Daisy, but I changed it to Princess
because that’s what she was to me.
helped you get to know me a bit better!
