“Number twenty-four, Sarah”
Those were the words that quickly changed my life. From that moment on, I had a larger voice and a title to use to help promote subjects I feel strongly about.
First off, WELCOME TO MY BLOG!! I’m extremely excited to be able to share what’s going on in my life as being Miss Teenage Frontenac. To start off with introducing myself, my name is Sarah. I am 18 years old and live in the beautiful city of Kingston, Ontario. At the time of the national competition I will be 19 years old. Since a young age I have loved to watch pageants and the positive impact they have on young women and the voice they use to help communities.
A few hobbies that I enjoy would be; reading, painting, and sewing. These hobbies can be very relaxing and have always brought out the creativity in me. Aside from hobbies I mostly spend my time playing with my two dogs. One of which would be a Great Dane named Shadow, and a Shar Pei -Lab named Leia. Both dogs love to steal my bed at night!
Some goals I have would be; to become a physiotherapist and to help educate on depression as well as to be someone who can help those struggling through it. I hope to attend Queen’s university here in Kingston to complete my education and become a licensed physiotherapist. I feel this career would be very rewarding on an emotional and physical level. It would give me a positive experience with each success and strive me to learn to help patients on each recovery. My goal of depression would tie into my platform as Miss Teenage Frontenac.
My platform is to help educate as many people as possible on Depression. I want to be able to be someone that others can confide in about what they are going through. This also includes removing the stigma that comes along with this mental hardship. Depression is a massive problem that isn’t only for young people but in all people all over the world. The more people who we educate on this matter and discuss it with, the more people who can make a difference. So let’s make a difference together, not only in my community, but with everyone.
I can’t wait to see where this journey takes me over the next year, and I’m excited that everyone who reads my blog will be able to join this journey with me!
