Happy May everyone! —This past Mother’s day weekend I made my first appearance as Miss Teenage Toronto 2017! This first appearance was particularly special to me as I shared it with my Mother and Grandmother and on Mother’s Day!

The three of us together; all three generations participated in the annual Mother’s day walk to end breast cancer for the Breast Cancer Society of Canada. I’m thrilled that my first appearance representing my title as Miss Teenage Toronto was for a cause dear to my heart and also for many women across Canada and the World.

With this in mind (and heart!) I’d like to introduce you and welcome you all to my “The Beauty Inside Campaign”. A Campaign for every single person who’s been touched by cancer – all girls, moms, grandmothers, sisters, daughters, boys, dads, grandfathers and brothers. The Beauty Inside Campaign represents STRENGTH and the EMPOWERMENT of all women. I aim to increase breast cancer awareness and research by promoting my campaign, fundraising and event volunteering – I hope you all can join me in this amazing journey!

 

The Beauty Inside journey began with an important walk – full of spirit and strength to fight breast cancer together! — I was very proud to be participating in a walk with my Mother and Grandmother, and to show love and support for everyone. The walk took place at Streetsville Park, on a beautiful spring sunshine day! I was extremely proud to represent Toronto and wore my sash and crown throughout the entire walk! The lively event was full of music and fun kids events with face painting artists and balloon twisting artists. They were breast cancer bracelets, ribbons, and T-shirts available with all proceeds going to breast cancer research.

In support of breast cancer awareness, my Mother, Grandmother and I all wore pink! As Miss Teenage Toronto 2017, my official photo for the event was taken and I also took photos with the event participants and children. One of my favorite moments was when a little girl asked to take a photo with the “Princess”. It was simply adorable and heartwarming to be referred to as a princess!

 

During the walk, I was warmly greeted and congratulated by my fellow walkers!

One my favorite moments and photos was taken with our city police officers! I thanked them for services and keeping everyone safe at the event. It was an extremely successful event with hundreds of breast cancer awareness supporters. I am extremely grateful for these events which bring people together, create a network of support and continue to spread the message of hope – and the BEAUTY INSIDE each one of us to make a difference. JOIN ME IN FINDING YOUR BEAUTY INSIDE ! 🙂

It was a wonderful Mother’s Day with my Mother and Grandmother! I just want to give a shout out to the both of you and thank you for continued LOVE and support! And Happy Mother Days to all moms and grandmas!

I hope you’ve enjoyed our short (but so sweet) time together! For next weeks blog, I’ll be sharing all fundraising efforts for Breast Cancer awareness and the “The Beauty Inside Campaign”! BUT Before I sign off – AS PROMISED in my last blog post – you all know about my love for filming and creating montages! So here’s a video I created of the Mother’s Day Walk to End Breast Cancer! I Hope you all enjoy it!
