For some of us girls, it was our first time eating Indian food! I personally thought it was delicious! If you’re ever in Toronto, check out Nirvana Flavours.

Do you have any idea what it’s like to be in a room with 55 other pageant queens, great food, and generous sponsors? It’s a blast! The opening night party was a celebration to remember! The MTC sponsors gave us delegates some spectacular gifts and had booths set up around the room where we could nibble on chocolate samples, try on the latest fashions, take fun pictures with a bow and arrow, and more. There was a hole of mini golf set up in one of the corners and a little while later, the best golfers took center stage as we moved the fun to the middle of the room for a tournament! Girls sat on the carpet and watched the dramatic tourney from the sides of the room while we ate pizza and cake. I remember the way we would all erupt into screams and cheering when the golf ball made it into the hole. What a charming way to bond with each other and start the 2016 search for Miss Teenage Canada!

I noticed that the current MTC logo has a maple leaf image in it but no crown! I feel that the crown is super important so I made sure to incorporate it in my design.  I love that ‘Teenage’ is a different colour so I kept that, and I also made made the font into a more dramatic version of hand-writing. After all, us pageant queens can be quite dramatic!! I hope you like my rollup banner design(: Love Abby

One of my favourite attractions in Manitoba is Aurora Farm! I had just left a strawberry farm one day when I noticed some alpacas on the side of the road. Because of my recent obsession with alpacas, I decided to turn in the driveway and realized it was a cute little farm. I got to take pictures with alpacas, goats, donkeys, dogs, the biggest horse I had ever seen, and more! There was also a little store beside the owners’ house where they sold home-made, organic products such as goat-milk soap, tooth paste, bug spray, body cream, lip balm, and more. They sold cute hats made out of their alpaca’s fur, and home-made ice cream! (Which I tried by the way, and it was amazing!!) They do a lot more at Aurora Farm than just that. For more information, visit their website. http://aurorafarm.ca/ Come to Manitoba and see it for yourself! 1234567

Hey everyone!!! For my opening post I’d love to tell you about the amazing experience I had leading up to the provincial pageant! A day-long workshop before the pageant gave me the splendid opportunity to learn about modelling, interview skills, public speaking, and meet all of the other delegates. Each girl has such a different personality but they are all incredible and have a passion to change the world for the better. <3 Through dance choreography and training and meals, we really got to know each other and now I have the honor of calling them my pageant family(:
The next morning I woke up with a bright grin across my face. Show day!! We spent the day practicing our protocol until 6:30 when crowds of formally-dressed people came through the doors. You could feel the buzz of anticipation in the room, especially back stage where us girls were shaking with excitement and nervousness and eagerness all at the same time!
The next thing we knew, lights were dimming and the crowd was quieting from their loud chatter. The show was about to begin. 🙂 🙂 🙂

       This year I have been blessed with many opportunities to follow my dreams and inspire others as being the Miss Teenage Winnipeg of 2015! I would not have been able to take on this roller coaster without the love and support from my family and friends. Throughout this experience I have made plenty of friends and we have been side by side watching each other bloom into the inspiring and caring girls we are today. I will always remember the memories we created and our bonds that grew stronger each time. This has been an amazing journey and I can only imagine what the future holds.

       Being Miss Teenage Winnipeg is not only a title, but also a responsibility. I have learnt that the duties of a title holder takes up a lot of time and effort, but I have also learnt that it is always worth it in the end. I have been able to share my platform and stand for what I believe in. Since my platform was poverty, I continuously donated my clothes, shoes, jackets, etc. to the Salvation Army to help those in need. It felt great knowing that I made a difference in the lives of others and put a smile on their face. Raising awareness for my platform was extremely important and much needed, I was able to reach out in the lives if others and make a change. Other than my platform, I have been able to overcome my weaknesses and seek new challenges in life. Growing up I was never shy, but more so self conscious. I would always worry about the opinion of othmikaelaers, however I have learnt that there are better things to worry about and that the opinions of others don’t matter if you’re 100% happy with yourself.

       The best part of this experience was Nationals in Toronto!! I competed against 80 other girls across Canada and lived my dream with them all. We made appearances at several places like the Eaton Centre, we went dragon boating, visited Niagara Falls, and did a whole bunch of other fun stuff. I will never forget the good times I spent with my pageant sister’s. We have all grown as a unity and also had the privilege to get to know each other.

       To the next Miss Teenage Winnipeg, I hope you continue to inspire others and to live your dream the way I did. This title is an amazing privilege and I encourage you to use this to meet new people, explore, and also to use your voice and make a difference in the world. I wish you the best of luck at Nationals!!

Much love xox -Miss Teenage Winnipeg

Today we made an appearance at the Toronto Eaton Centre and had the privilege to have lunch at one of the mostest unique taco busses. The design and layout of the truck was very appealing to the eye and it made me that much more excited when I was in line waiting to order. Their were more than enough options to choose from, I had a chicken burrito and it was delicious! It was also my very first burrito I’ve had and this place makes me want to eat burritos all the time.

Other than the tasty food, the staff were welcoming and made this experience super enjoyable, the friendly environment was also one of the reasons why we were able to enjoy this memorable experience. The speedy service was very much needed and well succeeded considering there were only four servers and 82 of us girls! A huge thank you goes out to the Richtree Maimage-2rket for providing us with their kindimage service and making us feel so welcome, your generosity will not go unrecognized.

Feel free to check out their social media accounts if you want more information about this outstanding taco bus:

Poverty iimages a topic that has been thrown to the side and has grown nationwide. Statistically, 1 in 7 people in Canada suffer and live in poverty. Whilesome families are able to enjoy three meals a day, 1 in 8 families struggle to put food on the table each day. The 546 000 children under the age of 18 who live in conditions of poverty do not deserve to do so.

I chose this topic because the subject itself has disappeared over the years. I would like to bring awareness to our society and educate the generations to come about poverty. Not many are aware of the huge affect that poverty has across the world and I want to strongly encourage others to stay educated and aware. Another reason I have chose this topic is because I am an extremely caring person and despise seeing human beings live an unstable life. I am willing to take on the leadership and responsibility to make a difference and make sure to minimize the poverty in my very own country.

This means a lot because it is a sentimental subject and I want to use my generosity to help out those in need. I am very passionate and enjoy helping others, giving has always been better than receiving. My grand parents come from a third world country and I have been exposed to many aspects of poverty, since then I have learned to be grateful for everything that has been given to me. We often forget how hard our families work to put clothes on our back and food on the table so words will never describe how blessed I am with the life I live.

As a title holder it is my job to raise awareness for my chosen platform. Since I have chosen poverty, I have been collecting clothes, toys, books, etc. that are in no use from my family and cousins to donate to the Salvation Army. I have collected two large garbage bags and multiple other bags of different sizes filled with all the donations given by myself, my family and cousins. To promote my platform I would visit classrooms at my school and educate them about poverty and remind them that any sort of donation would be appreciated no matter how big or small because it’ll still benefit those in need. I would also be more than glad to start food drives or donation boxes within my community and encourage my surroundings to learn more about such a huge topic. These events will give the subject a lot of exposure and educate others to be aware of how much poverty has taken over  numerous parts of our world.

This weekend seemed like one of the most hottest weekends here in Winnipeg! It was the perfect weather for an outdoor fundraiser for Free The Children. lucky1On July 26th I held a hotdog and bake sale outside of one of our local grocery stores, Lucky Supermarket, who was kind enough to sponsor the fundraising event. lucky2It was an all day event so luckily we were able to stay away from the sun and hide under a roof for some useful shade. There were plenty of people who stopped by and grabbed a hotdog and pop for only $2! We also sold baked goods provided by my Auntie Grace who has her own small personal at home business and sells to those who demand for her baked goods. I had the help from my wonderful family as well as some of the candidates from the search for the Queen of the Manitoba Filipino Street Festival. lucky3The customers were very helpful by supporting the event and purchasing a hotdog and pop, as well as some baked goods! lucky4It was indeed the perfect day to hold such a successful fundraising event for Free The Children.
