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!
