Because I will be leaving for Toronto TOMORROW, I wanted to post a final thank you to all of my sponsors, partners, and supporters throughout this journey. Each and every one of you has contributed towards this week and I am incredibly grateful for all that you have done for me!

And one last huge thank you goes to the organization my platform is based on, Live Different. I contacted this organization a little while after I was crowned to ensure that it was okay that I represented them, and they had no problem with it! Because of them I am able to go back to Mexico at the end of August and experience building another house for a family, and I am incredibly excited for it. I’m very happy to be representing them, and even have them linked at the top of my Facebook page.

I cannot thank all of you enough for your contributions towards my goals, and I am so happy with what I accomplished so far as Miss Teenage West Calgary. I’m incredibly excited for this week to come – so thank you for making it all possible!
