Hi Everyone! I hope you all had a fantastic Canada Day long weekend and hopefully you were able to help celebrate our amazing country!
This is one weekend I made sure to get involved in my community and help celebrate Canada’s Birthday! I am proudly born and raised Canadian (with a Polish heritage background) and I am blessed to be able to live in a land of freedom. There are so many reasons why I am honored to be a Canadian. I love the way we treat each other with respect, integrity and compassion. We embrace each other for who we are no matter culture, race or religion. We are known to be a peaceful country with everlasting opportunities. It is one of the most beautiful places in the world and I am truly blessed to live in such a wonderful country!
On Canada Day I was privileged to attend the 73rd Annual Steveston Salmon Festival Parade. The people of Steveston have come together every year since 1945 to celebrate Canada’s birthday and the rich heritage of our community. Thanks to the tireless efforts of hundreds of volunteers and the generous support of sponsors, the Richmond Agricultural and Industrial Society organizes one of the largest Canada Day celebrations across the country! On average, over 80,000 people from across Richmond, Metro Vancouver and the Pacific Northwest spend Canada Day in Steveston! I had so much fun attending the parade with my pageant sister Amelia Kohan – Miss Teenage Vancouver 2018. It was also a wonderful surprise to see driving right besides us in the parade Miss Lower Mainland BC 2017 – Anne Longakit and Miss Asia Pacific Int’l Canada 2018 – Ariel J. Cao! It was such an amazing turn out, thousands of people attended the parade. It was so exciting walking and interacting with the crowds and it is times like this when I feel so proud representing my Province and wearing my British Columbia sash! http://stevestonsalmonfest.ca/
This weekend I also had the honor of being one of the judges for the Tri-Cities Got Talent at the 42nd Annual Golden Spike Days Festival. The event commemorates the construction of the Canadian Pacific Railway line and its arrival at the original western terminus in Port Moody, BC where the LAST SPIKE was driven. This is an amazing 4 day festival with lots of entertainment, activities for the whole family, food trucks and of course Tri-Cities Got Talent!
Four years ago I had the pleasure of being one of the judges when I was honored with the title Miss Teenage British Columbia 2014. Fast forwarding 4 years later, I was once again very grateful for the opportunity of being one of the judges with my new title Miss British Columbia World 2018!
I spent two days at the Golden Spike Days judging a variety of talent from the Tri-Cities area. Wow! I was so amazed of the talent we have in our community. Congratulations to all that participated in this years Tri-Cities Got Talent. You all did amazing and should be very proud!
Thanks again for taking the time in reading and following my journey!
