Hello everyone, I just want to start off with thanking everyone who has been a part of my journey so far and who supported me 100% to Officially become Miss Teenage Red Deer County! With everything going on I like to think back to the pageant days where I met so many unique, amazing, smart talented girls who I am glad to call my friends.We had such a fun time together getting to know each other and practice our walks and pretending not to be nervous in front of each other when we had to go up in front of everyone while they watched. I wish every single one of the girls who I competed with in this past February could move on to nationals, and it was such a pleasure to meet all the judges.
Now, Let me introduce myself. My name is Kendyl,I am 17 years old and I was born in red deer Alberta. I’ve moved to a small town outside of red deer. I’ve lived here for 14 years. Growing up my life revolved around going to school, helping out with my chores around the house and annoying my two older siblings Sheridan and Connor. I loved to sing and dance as a kid but not professionally. I had a real passion for music, when I was in middle school I auditioned on a teen show called ” The Next Star”. I went with my mom early that morning. I was so nervous I could barley breathe. In the end I didn’t make it through, but for me to think back in this and remember that I pushed my self out of my comfort zone and tried something so spectacular it made me want to keep having that feeling of excitement! So I went on and did my schools talent show! When I got to high school I auditioned for the schools Musical that year and the next and the next. It’s been a wild ride and I loved every second of it! Being crowned at regional’s made me the happiest person alive! When Michelle W told me that I am Miss Teenage Red Deer County 2016 and that I represent all the surrounding areas from Bowden to Penhold to sylvan to Delbern to Innisfail.
My Platform for nationals is ” changing stereotypical views on pageants and on the girls who participate in them”. This platform is so important not just to me but to our society. In today’s society so many girls are shamed for what there hair looks like, what they believe in, what there body looks like. Knowing me or even looking at a picture of me you know that I am not the “most prettiest girl”, I’m not skinny and I’m “to tall too wear heels”. So I’m not the “pageant type”. I’m here to show our younger generation that you don’t have to live up to the medias expectations, you can be your own kind of beautiful! If your short own it! If your tall ( like me 😉 ) then you rock those heels and become even taller,
( maybe even look down at all the haters). I want to show people that no matter what you look like you can compete in pageants.Pageants are not all like what you see on TV. They show you how to answer question for interviews, they teach how to own the stage or take command of a room. This regional pageant showed me that it’s an educational, leadership becoming, role model making experience and I want to share this experience with everyone. So instead of being scared for wanting to be in a pageant and being judged by your peers, remember that you are always going to be beautiful in your own way so why not have fun with it!!
If any of you have any questions about anything please don’t hesitate to contact me, I would love to hear from you
Sincerely yours: Kendyl Miss Teenage Red Deer County 2016
