As a Regional Delegate from BRITISH COLUMBIA, I arrived in Toronto on Saturday the sixteenth at around 6:30 pm with fellow British Columbia delegates: Ariel, Anne, Gabriella, and Madi. We arrived a day earlier as we wanted to get settled in and not have to stress about flying in on the day of the competition. At the airport, we met up with Courtney a former MTC delegate who met up with Ariel before hand. With Courtney our chaperone, we headed off to the hotel. At the hotel, we checked into our home, settled in, and discussed what to expect for our upcoming pageant. We shared a lot of laughs, had fun, dined at the restaurant and then proceeded to our rooms to get a good night’s sleep. The next day at around 7 pm we entered into the ballroom at the Airport Holiday Inn in Toronto. The delegate’s Welcome Party was held there  to attend the Opening Ceremonies of the 2016 Search for Miss Teenage Canada.   I was feeling excited when I walked passed the doors to the ballroom and seeing all the girls there. It was amazing to think that I was in a room filled with such accomplished young ladies. The party was neatly organized with our sponsor’s booths neatly surrounding the room. I proceeding to go around and thank and take pictures with our sponsors. They had some really cool things in store for us!

I don’t know about you but I love fashion so when Nuvango came bearing designer clothes to give especially to us- I was so thrilled! Not just I but the other delegates looked content with the gifts provided to us. On Tuesday, July 19th, the Miss Teenage Canada 2016 delegates will be making our way to the Nuvango headquarters. I’m extremely excited for it!

Hashtagio is a “Social Media Aggregator and User Generated Marketing Platform” that was present at the Welcome Party collecting all our social media tagged photos with the hashtag #MissTeenageCanada2016.  The pictures were then projected live at the party. What makes Hashtagio even better, is that they make a single feed URL, which people such as our parents and friends can subscribe to. Which allows them to follow along in real time as we experience all the vast activities here in Toronto while we compete for the title, visit sponsors, and tour the city. All of the issued images and texts from all of the s  delegates will be archived on this page in the Miss Teenage Canada main site.  As well  on the Miss Teen Canada Blog Network / Search for Miss Teenage Canada 2016.

Sam Dhutia a representative from Sweets Canada attended the party. He was sampling out amazingly, delicious, chocolate! Which was pretty awesome because girl, I love my chocolate!!! I had a sample of the Ginger dark chocolate bar and it was an explosion of flavour. I like ginger but I wasn’t . It just shows that no matter what you should try new things. Sam created a very informative and extremely delicious chocolate tasting exhibit – after each sampling he generously gave out gourmet chocolate bars , and or edible flower chocolate bars, depending on each delegate’s individual preferences, as discovered during the tastings.
