Thank You LOLC Family

I had been given an amazing opportunity. As all of my followers know I have suffered from speech impediments and intense bullying in my lifetime.  And this is why I compete in pageantry, to create awareness for such issues. So I had an amazing opportunity presented to me in September, to be a worldwide title holder with Live Out Loud […]

HockeyVille Canada

This year HockeyVille came to the Okanagan, and because Canada is famous for Hockey, Hockeyville is a BIG deal in here. One community across the country is chosen as HockeyVille Canada for the entire year. This year the Village of Lumby (which is just a few minutes from Vernon) was in the top 2. Over the past 10 years HockeVille […]

A loco Easter

On March 28th I attended the Okanagan’s famous Loco Landing Easter Egg Hunt. I was honored to be on the special guest list next to the one and only Easter Bunny. I mean who can really say they have had their name next to the Easter Bunny!! This Easter egg hunt is more than just an egg hunt it has everything from crafts to surfing practice to full on relays. One of my highlights from this year’s event would be the egg hunt in the SS Sicamous, which is a vintage boat that once sailed the Okanagan waters; this boat is also rumored to be haunted. Though this boat is no longer on the water it was still very cool to walk around on. I was able to see the sleeping quarters, the mess hall, and even the captain’s wheel. I loved watching the children run from room to room searching for their Easter eggs. The loco landing Easter egg hunt is definitely an Okanagan favorite for sure.

Easter with Emily, Miss Teenage Kelowna

Just before Easter I attended the Kelowna Victory Life Easter Egg Hunt with my good friend Emily, Miss Teenage Kelowna 2015. I am honored to have spent the last event of her reign with her. Throughout the day Emily and I enjoyed pancakes, helium balloons, dancing and more.   We even asked to hand balloons out to the children who were at the event. At one point we even got to go up on stage and dance with a group of kids, who loved dancing with a couple of “queens”. The event was a hit as usual. And I had a blast. I am so very thankful that Emily spent the last day of her reign with me. Love you Emily, you will go on to do great things.

Lake Country Children’s Festival

On February 27th Lake Country hosted their first ever indoor children’s festival, I was not expecting such a huge turn out and was really surprised at how many people and vendors attended. When I got there I was shocked the parking lots (even the streets) were jam packed and the inside of the building where it was hosted was also jam packed. Amazing turn out! From the second I got in the door little children were all over me some just coming to say hi others just coming to look. Walking around there was many cool exhibits to look at. There was a Lego land, a historical photo booth, clowns, gold panning and so much more. My Mom and I took a walk around the vendors, where venders gave us samples everything from apple juice to essential oils. Happily Holistic an essential oil place gave my mom and I 2 big samples of room spray to relax and be calm. The children’s Mickey Mouse bouncy castle was a riot to watch as it was an obstacle course and some of the kids were just jumping all over the place. There was a place where little kids could try on a turban, and soon every child inside had a turban on. One guy from Hoof Print Barn Yard was carrying around a cute little baby goat which I posed for a picture with and it started bahing, then it snuggled in […]

BC Snow Sculpture competition

Another very unique event, to not only Vernon but to BC and all of Canada is the BC  Snow Sculpture competition. These sculptures are not your average snowman, these are full on words, pictures and even music notes carved out of snow. This was my first year going up to Silver Star Mountain to see them, and they were so cool. (no pun intended) The teams can only use hand tools which is even more amazing.  The winner of the BC competition, which was I ❤ Posing, gets to go to Quebec and compete for the national prize and represent BC at the nationals. Up at Silver Star Mountain I got to see my new friends again the Silver Star Queens, so it was fun to say hi to them again. The snow sculptures were one of a kind and it must have been a real challenge to finish them in just a few days.

Bullying Rant

People should not judge other people minimally before they get to know them. How dare someone call another person a name before they know anything about him or her? Maybe that person didn’t acknowledge you because they can’t speak English, or maybe they can’t speak at all, maybe they can’t hear either. I hate it when someone calls a person […]

Shriner’s variety show

The Shriner’s variety show was held on December 4 2015 and I was an honored guest!! All the money raised goes to the Shiners Hospitals for Children. The variety show was truly state of the art. It was amazing. There was a magician, a ventriloquist (who was my personal favorite) and others, including a guy who got his whole body […]

Ringing the Bell for Charity

Twice in December I volunteered with the local Salvation Army to ring the bell at the mall. This is an activity that I did last year as well and loved it. This year I was able to do it on a sash and people just loved that. This year in Vernon alone there was 5500 hours by 1500 volunteers, which is a lot in a small town. This year the goal was to raise $150000 and I’m happy to say that the goal was surpassed and it was a record breaking year. The money from the Kettle campaign is the main fundraise for the food bank. The Salvation Armys also put on food drives and other events like teddy bear tosses. The Salvation Army is a big part of our community and I am happy to have been a small part of it.

My Platform

My platform is anti bullying and equality for all. My motto for this platform is “be someone’s hero, not a bystander”. What this means is that you will never stop the bullies but the bystanders can be taught that they don’t have to enable the bully, and that they can stand up for the victim or get help for them. […]
