My platform for Miss Teenage Canada is healthy active living. I choose this platform because i grew up playing sports since the age of six. I started off playing baseball. It helped me grow as a person. I was able to be part of a team, i felt needed, i felt important. I met many new friends from all over Nova Scotia and even some from New Brunswick. As i got older i found a new favorite sport, Basketball. I played on a school team from grade 4 and still currently play on the Jr. High team. I learned to take criticism, I learned to be a leader, there we’re many other positive impacts sports had on my young life. But most importantly I was keeping active and healthy.
To me it is important to live a healthy active lifestyle because i want to live a long graceful life. I will pass this along to other youth in hopes they get the same benefits as I did. Being active reduces your chance of obesity, heart failure and stroke just to name a few.
If I win Miss Teenage Canada I hope to spread awareness and also raise money to provide more deserving children an equal opportunity to engage in sporting programs, that will help them grow and develop in a positive manner while helping take the financial burden off a struggling parents shoulders. #charity #platform #givingback #missteencanada #my platform
