Well it’s official, I leave for Miss Teen Canada-World tomorrow in Toronto! It has been so much hard work but ultimately worth it – I feel that this experience as Miss Teen Chatham-Kent has been life changing and I have learned so much while meeting amazing people and of course having fun! There’s so much more to pageant life then the glitz and glamour – it is a positive experience where I can use my title to make the world a better place. I had the chance to promote a platform to help girls with self esteem and talk about my struggles and how I overcame them when I visited local elementary schools as Miss Teen Chatham Kent-World. With my title, I raised money for one of the most inspirational charities that I have always wanted to lend my contributions to – Free The Children Foundation. Miss Teen CK also helped out with the epilepsy support event and fundraiser and Relay for life raising money for cancer research. Through the Miss Teen Canada-World pageant I have already gotten to meet so many amazing girls, who help each other through every detail from a spray tan question to friendly advice – I can honestly call my sister queens true sisters. I’m excited to announce that myself and the beautiful Tatiana Maranhao, Miss Teen Essex County-World – will be driving up together to Toronto! I’m so excited to see her again, as well as all the other delegates! I can’t believe it’s already here, where has the time gone? I’d like to thank my family, friends, my sister queens, wonderful sponsors and all of my supporters! I couldn’t have made it this far without you and I am so grateful for everything you have done to help me on my journey. Don’t forget to pick up your copy of the Chatham daily news Saturday July 13th for information on how you can vote for the next Miss Teen Canada-World! I hope to make you all proud this week! I will be posting updates and YouTube vlogs of my journey to the final night July 20th 2013 and who knows, I might just have the honour of representing my beautiful country as the new Miss Teen Canada-World, thank you everyone and lots of love from your home town princess – Melanie Renaud, Miss Teen CK 2013 ♥
