I love summer so much. Everything is so nice and beautiful, plus the Miss Teenage Canada 2017 pageant is almost here!
Our first blog assignment was to blog about your favourite place within your region. My favourite place in my region has got to be Drumheller!
The first time I went to Drumheller was when I was about 6 years old and it was the coolest thing ever! We went to The Royal Tyrrell Museum and I remember just how much I loved seeing all the huge figures of dinosaurs bones. It’s so crazy to believe these creatures were once alive.
The Hoodoos are one of my favourite sights in Drumheller, it is a natural area of giant red and orange rocks. We would climb them until we got tired and couldn’t climb up any higher. This recent spring we went to Drumheller and it was just as awesome as I remember.
Drumheller is a family friendly place that is fun , educating , and exciting!
After the drive from Edmonton, the first thing that will catch your eye is a giant statue of a T-Rex. It really frightened me when I was younger and first saw it. As you drive through the town there are statues of dinosaurs and every time I get so excited to see them all.
I used to wish that scientists would find a way to re-create the dinosaurs, but after watching Jurassic park I hope that never happens.
Drumheller will always be one of my favourite places to go. No matter how old you are, it will always be exciting.

Stay adventurous,
Miss Teenage Edmonton 2017

I want to give another HUGE thanks to Dr. Ramunè Sileikyte from Embrace Orthodontics for her generous donation so I can move forward into this wonderful journey!
Everyone who works there are all so kind and amazing. I have been a patient there for about 3 years and the results are amazing. Their motto is “Creating healthy beautiful smiles for life!” And it’s so true. They have transformed my smile! I absolutely love my smile now!😄

Just look at the results! (2014-2017)
It’s just astonishing the difference from then and now.
All of the staff have been so supportive on my journey towards Miss Teenage Canada. They are always so positive in wishing me good luck and giving me the smile I thought I would never have 🙂
Thank you so incredibly much,
Lilah

Hello everyone! My name is Lilah and I am honoured to be Miss Teenage Edmonton 2017!

To start off, here is a little about me:

I am 13 years old and I was born in Vancouver B.C. but moved when I was 4 to Calgary. I lived there for a few years, then Niagara Falls for a few and ended up living in the beautiful city of Edmonton:)! Moving from place to place has made me adaptable, outgoing, fun and kind. From all of the different provinces I’ve lived in, my favourite would have to be Alberta because it’s truly beautiful and has lots of opportunities for me.

I go to a wonderful school called Vimy Ridge Academy. They have lots of specialized sport programs like hockey, soccer, baseball, sportfit, elite and dance. I am in the dance program where I dance about 20 hours a week. In the dance program you do 2 types of ballet (R.A.D and Cecchetti), Jazz, lyrical, modern, and pointe. I’ve also done hip hop, acro, a little bit of tap and gymnastics. My favourite of those would have to be ballet because of its grace and beauty. My platform is ‘Dance through movement towards better health’. Dance is an excellent way to stay fit and prevent health problems such as heart disease, diabetes and osteoporosis. I hope to help those with Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s through dance. Dance is helping them regain the ability to move again, which is incredible!

I’m am so excited to see all of the girls again at nationals in Toronto august 7-13th, they’re all are so kind, amazing, and gorgeous people. I am ecstatic to compete for the title of miss teenage Canada 2017 but also being able to represent Alberta there too. And it’s such a great year for it as well, it’s Canada’s 150th birthday! WOO!
I want to give a big thank you to all those who made this possible for me, it’s like a dream come true. I can’t wait for August OMG!! THANK YOU EVERYONE! ❤️
Lots of love,
Lilah

Hey everyone! So because these days went by so quickly, I decided to write 1 blog post instead of 2 short ones!

sooo to start…

Day 6. Today consisted of long rehearsal hours and by the end my feet were numb & I could barely walk LOL. But hey, that just means I’m working hard right? 🙂 Anyways, after all the rehearsing I met up with my amazing hair and makeup team (Motives by Loren Ridinger) who gave me a flawless look for prelims! Preliminary’s consisted of swim suit walk and evening gown walk! The best part is…. no choreo! You get to decide how you’ll present yourself and what “routine” you want to do! The girls chosen from prelims become the Top 20 at finals on saturday night! All the girls were super helpful with putting on dresses, fixing hair & makeup and giving each other motivation talks when the nerves kicked in <3

        

Day 7. Today was so exciting! Once again, I started the day bright and early. After 5 long hours of rehearsals, I prepared myself for the Gala night. Tonight was the night where all the talent performers showed their routines and the remaining girls spoke about their platforms.  I decided to dance for my talent (of course) and decided to show my contemporary solo from this past year choreographed by Shelley Tookey! Wow this night was filled with emotions! Every performance moved me and I honestly got goose bumps and chills from all of them! The amount of talent in this group of delegates is unreal and I was so happy I got to share my passion. Also, tonight was the first night I got to see my mom! Spending a week without seeing her is so much harder than I thought it would be so I was excited  <3 <3

It is currently 3:15 am and neither Ariel or I can even think about sleeping until we are 100 percent sure we are prepared for finals tonight! The last day of this journey is about to begin and I’m honestly terrified but so eager for it! If you want to watch the live stream, follow my facebook page and the link will be posted soon 🙂 THANKYOU SO MUCH FOR BEING SO SUPPORTIVE THROUGH ALL OF THIS, WORDS CANNOT EXPRESS HOW THANKFUL I AM <3 <3 <3

 

 

 

À la prochaine fois, 

xo Brianne.
