Hey Canada! Have you heard the news? Well it just so happens that Luke Bilyk who plays Drew Torres on Degrassi, will be hosting the 2013 Miss Teen Canada-World along side Gina Omilon, Miss Teen Red Deer World 2012! How exciting is that!? Luke has also said that he will come by the hotel to meet each one of us for photos during the week of nationals! I absolutely love his character on Degrassi and can’t wait to meet him! I’m hoping that when we do meet Luke, the girls and I won’t be too starstruck!
What’s The Buzz with Miss Teen CK 2013?
This week I’ve been confirming event dates and planning ways to fund-raise money for Free The children in May! I have also been handing out my new brochures at events I attend and to potential sponsors. The next event I will be attending is next Monday, where I will be singing the national anthem at the Bradley Convention Centre! So far you can say it’s been a busy month along with getting ready for my school musical! The cast and crew of Jesus Christ Super Star is hard at work because it’s show week!!! Our first show is Tuesday morning and show dates run until Saturday night! I’ve had so much fun this year rehearsing for the musical and making new friends on the cast and crew as well. The things I love most about musicals are performing: singing, acting and dancing on stage – and the great friends you make in the process!
Do what you love, and love what you do. As a young girl this was always something I thought about whenever I felt like I couldn’t do something. I know now there is always going to be someone or something bringing you down, but it’s ultimately up to you on how you react. Ignore all negative comments and do what makes you happy. Whether you want to be an actress, teacher or doctor – no dream is too big or too small nor too far out of reach. If you believe in yourself, you can change the world.
