Hello there! This is my first post for Miss Teenage Canada Pageant blog. My name is Reanna, I’m 17 years old from Valleyview, Ab, and I’m your new Miss Teenage Northwest Alberta! The legacy of the title will live on! My cousin/past pageant title holder was Hanna Peterson.
I’m very happy to be following her in her footsteps and carrying on the legacy of Miss Teenage Northwest Alberta title!
I’m hoping this will be a great year full of new experiences! This will be an amazing experience, GOOD LUCK GIRLS!
My platform was raising awarness on the effects media has on todays REAL society but this thought has completely changed over the last few months. In my community we have had multiple deaths involving motor vehicle accidents. 4 young men have passed away from my school alone within the year of 2011 and there is only about 400 students in our school. If this wasnt a statistic proven right about every 1 in 100 teens dying in vehicle accidents, I dont know what is!
This last Friday there was a fatal accident involving 5 young amazing teen age boys whom all went to the Grande Prairie Compoiste High School. The only survivor from the crash was my good friend Zachary Judd who I’ve known for many years. He is currently at the U of A hospital being looked after by the best doctors available. He is one strong young man and will alway be in my prayers till he is better. He’s a figher and he will continue to fight on. I didnt know the 4 boys who passed away but I give out my heart and prayers to their families and friends who are affected. Its not my place to say further details on the accident or on the conditons of Zach.
Drinking and driving was a major factor in many of the accidents in the Peace Country Region. This has torn apart many families and will continue to if this terrible trend keeps on happening. I beg you for the ones who read my blog be an aware, defensive, smart, and alert driver and never have drink before going behind the wheel or getting in with a drunk driver. You’ll regret it and thats a promise.
R.I.P – Dean Chowace, Cameron Goodswimmer, Brandon Moses, Matthew Kiywasew. These were the young men who lost there lives at my school. I also give my condolences to the families of the 4 young boys who lost there lives in Grande Praire.
We love you Zachary and I really hope you make it through this. <3.
I am trying to make awarness on the issue of recklace and drunk driving. With the amount of loss in my community and surrounding areas due to vehicle accident, I want to take a stand and put it out there that this is a serious issue and and it can be prenvented in all cirrcumstances. My family was affected and I know how it is to see so much pain come from this that it really hurts my heart. So please make it clear to make the right desicions when driving cause it can save lives.
I know I havent updated in awhile but the truth is, I havent had inspiration to. I know its an easy thing to do once and awhile and I can probably do it all the time.
As entering Gr.11 has had its challenges adjusting to the real world, I have been learning to cope. Now that Im 16, I have to realize Im 16, not turning 25. As my dad told me, ” you still have a lot of growin- up to do before you actually grow- up.” I made mistakes, I may or may not have learned from them, but atleast Im having experinces you’re supposed to have when you’re young and stupid; so Im told… Right now I sit at my computer thinking. Thinking about how my life is going to have its ups and downs, when and where Ill be going to school in a short 2 years, and what I am going to be when I grow- up. Yes, I still ask myself that question sometimes!
Im not in gymnastics this year, but I am definitly excited for curling to start up this winter. I cant wait! When I am on the sheets of ice I feel invincable. I do get frustrated but the stress and time needed to get good, is worth it. My goal this year is get as good as my ablities will let me in this sport. Curling in my community and in my family is a hobbie that many of us are involved in. The Redwillow Curling Club is the place where we play games and practice. To be honest I was never really interested in it until the last couple years. I was a sub for my mom and Auntie Roxanne’s team from time to time. These 2 ladies were the ones who really introduced me to curling. They have been involved in our club for many, many years. They were my teachers and I know they still have much more to help me with. Last year I was on the school’s mixed curling team. My team mates were awesome and easy to get along with. I never really knew who they were untill we were put on a team togther. It was a great learning experience, thats for sure.
This year in school, Im still attending at Hillside Junior/Senior High School. The classes I have this semester are chemistry20, biology20, and math20-1. Im not at student that excels in everything I do but I defintitly giver a good effort. Friends are very important to me and to everyone Id assume. My bestfriends since Ive entered this school in Gr.7 are Arianna, Haylee, and Shannaya. These ladies have been there for me whenever I need them the most. Like every group of girls there was a little bit of drama, but that wasnt enough to break us up. When I look down the hallways at school, I can probably name everyone that walks by. We fianlly hit 400 students!
Im perfectly happy with my life right now. Nothing could make it more perfect! I have my family, my friends, and even the people who come and go still have a positive impact on my life because everything is a learning experience. Most of the time Im a pretty easy going, fun, loving person, even at the most stressful of times. Im not the richest, most athletic, prettiest, or smartest girl in my school, but from where I look at it Ive achieved so much, I have to give myself credit for being the only person I want to be. And that person is me. =)
This is a little taste of what Ive been up to
I’ve been thinking, if i was a tv show host what would my show be called, about, and who would watch it. I concluded that I would be the host of a hit TV show called Teen Trivia. This show would consist of me going out across the world and getting fashion, health, make-up, and relationship advice from one area of the world and compare it to another. This show will share advice which allows everyone learn, use , and try new techniques. Yes, looks aren’t everything but everyone cares so why not embrace them?
On my first journey I plan to travel to France and find out the secrets many teens use to stay fit, healthy, fresh faced, and how to keep it real. I will be filmed by a local Canadian Broadcasting Company that will air my show internationally. I will hold auditions for a co-host that will also be a teen that has a good attitude and is a person people everywhere can look up to. We will travel together and pretty much become family.
Cost is a major factor in this event. This is why I’m hoping the major beauty and fashion companies would like to sponsor this show. Marc Jacobs and Rimmel London are very committed and dedicated groups that love to show how inner a beauty doesn’t only show through your personally but in the way one puts themselves together. This would not only be a great opportunity for me but for them also. They wou,d get tons of advertising and we really believen what these two companies stand for; Inner and outer beauty. I know many people think looks don’t matter but everyone cares so yet again I ask why not embrace it!
As many of you readers know Rimmel is a company famous world wide for their production in make-up and beauty products including nail polish, false nails, make-up etc. They are also a very proud sponsor for Miss Teen Canada- World. I use the Rimmel eye products on a day-to-day basis.
This clothing and accessories line is recognized across the world!! I believe it would be such and honor for them to sponsor this amazing organization. His clothing are not “just” clothes they’re personality. He also has a collection of perfume out. This is the perfect type of company we can work around and help establish easily. Not only does this give them a great promoting option but also us the chance to build a name and reputation as new show!!!
Yesterday, July 9th, was my first day at the Miss Teen Canada- World pageant. Arriving in the Toronto airport made me realize this was all so real! At the airport I met up with two other alberta girls, Samantha and Sara. We were picked up together. As the day went on and more girls started to get to the hotel we had a small briefing on what we learned at the Provincial pageant we all attened in our home provinces. Walking and standing weree touched on. I met some of the ladies but not becuase there is just just so many of us, but by the end of the week i’m sure we’ll all be friends! Day 1 was by far the most tiring but still very rewarding on many levels. =)

Where Club Penguin is Helping
Club Penguin is Helping on over 34 countries across the world. They are partnered with many other recognizable charities and organizations because they believe that without the help of others they wouldn’t be able to reach the goals creating safe places, protecting the earth, and providing medical help across the globe because these things are not a privilege but a right. They believes that everyone is entitled to education and hope for a bright future. This is why they are a global community. To Club Penguin they say the meaning behind a global community is giving back and that exactly what they are set out to do.
In December between the 11th and the 21st Club Penguin encourages the players to donate the coins they earn playing the virtual game of Club penguin to 3 worthy causes; Kids who are poor, Kids who are sick, and the environment. Many of the kids that play this game showed their support by throwing fundraiser igloo parties in the virtual world. The smallest of things can help. By the end about 4 billion coins have been donated. A pol was taken on how 1 million dollars should be divided evenly between Kids who are sick, Kids who are poor, and the Environment. It was tallied that it was pretty even. This was a great success. http://www.clubpenguin.com/parents/coins-for-change-2009.htm
Club Penguin was made public on October 4th, 2005. Within a short 2 years it had over 3.9 million users. The amount of user had given the site an even bigger advantage to get people involved in the world. By the time Disney bought out Club Penguin it had about 12 million users and about 700 000 paying subscribers that brought in about about 40 million dollars of revenue annually. This money needed to go somewhere in the world so why not put it to good use?
Club Penguin got involved because Disney believes that everyone across the world deserve a life of ease and a brighter future. They are involved in many other projects across the globe along with Free the Children. Please take a few minute to see what they have done to make a difference and how they helped many families and children. The link below will show you the way. http://www.clubpenguin.com/global-citizenship/
I will be holding a Free the Children Fundraiser on June 26th. I’m sure it will be tons of fun and something everyone will enjoy. The Free the Children Bottle Drive should be a great success and it can get many involved. This will take place at the Sturgeon Lake Camp ground about 15 km away from Valleyview on HWY 43. Its easy to get involved and give up a little time to help a good cause. Now its your turn.
