A Message to the Delegates
Hi there! Congratulations on being selected as Miss Canada International
delegate and welcome to the MCI family! Whether you're reading this month's,
week's or hour's before the pageant, I would like to offer you some words of
advice and encouragement.
Some of you are nervous and scared - not knowing what to expect; some of you
are proud and over-confident - thinking you know what to expect. Forget
the expectations. Come with an open mind and heart, and be ready for anything.
First of all, prepare yourself physically, mentally and emotionally before you
arrive in Toronto, Seriously. Make sure you are not ill, or feeling weak
before you come - there will be little time for rest. Stay fit if you can. If
you are physically fit,. you will not only look better, but you will feel a lot
better when you 're running around during pageant week. Once you're feeling
healthy, take a deep breath, Calm yourself mentally, by hoping for the best, but
expecting the unexpected, You never know what might happen, so just take a
breather and let it happen. One thing is (or should be) under your control is
your emotions. Keep them in check. As you pack your bags, leave those immature,
pompous, selfish or fragile emotions at home. Be strong, yet friendly; be
confident , yet modest; and most of all, be yourself.
You've heard it time and time again, to be yourself, but what does
that really mean? Well, it means different things to each individual, but all I
know is that a big part of why I won is because everyone saw that I was being
the best of mw. And mind you, it's not just the judges who watch for the person
that you really are. When people ask you questions, don't tell them what you
think they want to hear. Tell them what you want to say. If you give the wrong
answer, but you answered honestly, then quite frankly, this may just not be the
job for you. And that is a fact - only one of you will be walking away
with the title Miss Canada International. However all of you should be
walking away with a lifetime of memories, friendships and experiences.
I could never tell you in one page, or even a few pages, what my experience
as Miss Canada International has been line - this is why, right now, all I can
offer you is a few words of advice for your upcoming pageant. Come armed with a
loaded camera, no expectations and an attitude that says, "I'm here to show you
what an amazing person I am, and regardless of what you decide of me, I'm
walking out of here a winner."
Good luck! And don't for get to smile!
