I come from the small town of Lac La Biche that is quickly growing. We still like to recognize our heritage, and celebrated Aboriginal day with other Aboriginals from my community on June 21 2013. We had a great day that was blessed with beautiful weather. A special Aborigional sash and crown was made for me by former Miss Teen Aboriginal. There were four different colours on it that had special different meanings, silver meant youth, yellow was for the sun, blue was for waters, and red was for fire. My crown, my sash as well as myself got blessed that morning. My blessing was for good luck, and that no matter what happened I would be safe.
That afternoon I had marched through main street in my moccasins and I took part in the Aboriginal parade along with many other students that led us down to the lake.
I was born and raised in the town of Lac La Biche, Alberta. The town started off small and is now slowly growing. I am so proud to be representing Metis Nation and my home town of Lac La Biche in the Miss Teen Canada-World pageant. I will now shortly be on my way to Toronto!!! I am so EXCITED!!
Wish me luck!! xoxo
