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,
