Happy Canada Day! From sea to shining sea, Canada is known for its cultural diversity and its beautiful wonders all year round. I am so thankful to be Canadian and I am thankful for its inclusivity! I cannot imagine a better place to live in; what’s not to love about Canada?

This year, I had a very exciting (and busy) Canada Day and I started off the morning with a bang at the Steveston Salmon Festival parade! Richmond holds a very special place in my heart because it was where I lived when I first moved to Canada, and I was able to meet quite a number of my classmates and teachers from my elementary school during the parade! Alongside MINI Richmond and a few of the other Miss Teenage BC 2016 delegates, we skipped down the road to spread as much Canadian “spirit” as we possibly could, saying “hi” to the community and wishing everyone a Happy Canada Day.

Proud to be Canadian!

Before we knew it, the parade had ended. I had to quickly dash to my second parade of the day in Burnaby with some crazy navigation skills through the Canada Day traffic. Burnaby was my home for my senior high school years and it was just great seeing old friends and meeting new ones in my hometown! Thank you to Burnaby Village Museum & Carousel for allowing me to be a part of today’s festivities!

The day had not ended and I was glad. My last event of the day was definitely the craziest (crazy good!) and the biggest. I had a lovely afternoon with my 2016 Miss Teenage BC family as we came together for the annual Downtown Vancouver Canada Day Parade! All I can say is “WOW”; I am still wide awake from the excitement that is celebrating my Canada Day with a group of amazing ladies and incredible Vancouverites! There were lots of smiles, laughs, and waving as we jammed along the music throughout the parade route. The BC girls are ready to bring the heat to nationals and we would like to wish everyone a VERY HAPPY CANADA DAY!!!!!!!!!!
