To start off I’d like to share that last weekend I had the opportunity to volunteer at the Sudbury Kids & Pet Expo hosted by Dynamic Eventz. The fundraiser was for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Sudbury. There were several vendors, bounce houses, fashion shows, dog shows, reptile shows and much more! It was a wonderful day that I was happy to be apart of.
Then on Monday Morning I had my very first radio interview with my favorite radio station KICX 91.7 Sudbury’s Hot New Country!
Brad & Leanne interviewed me live and I had the opportunity to talk about my experience at Miss North Ontario, preparing for Miss Teenage Canada, upcoming fundraisers and how pageants are much more than just walking in a beautiful dress, its all about what’s on the inside. A huge thank you goes out to the station for supporting me! They also wrote a blog about me and my upcoming event “Crown The Night” on their website http://www.kicx917.com/ go check it out!
Throughout this week I’ve also been busy with being on set for the film Country Crush. In May I was in Toronto on set with them as well (which was my very first time being in a movie). Being on set has made me realize how much hard work and effort it takes to make a film! It was an amazing experience, especially because I got to meet so many new people.
I also had the chance to meet the wonderful Degrassi star Munro Chambers and actress/ country singer Madeline Merlo. They are both so talented and it was a pleasure working with them. Madeline Merlo is also opening for Dean Brody & Paul Brandt this October in Sudbury, Ontario. I absolutely love her music, check out her song “Alive” which is available on YouTube & iTunes.
Yesterday I volunteered at my elementary school Valley View Public School to read and do activities with the younger kids. It was truly an amazing day being with all of the children and seeing all of my old teachers who have helped me become the person I am today. I have a passion for working with kids, it’s definitely something I would like to pursue in the future. I got some cute questions from the kids such as ” Are you the real Queen of England?” “Are you a Disney princess, and do you live their?” “I want to be like you when I’m older”…etc. I’d like to thank Valley View Public School for having me, I will definitely be back to visit next year!
To wrap things up, this week I will be busy preparing for an audition for the lead role in the film called A Life To Love and enjoying my very last week of 11th grade. Have a great week everyone!
