Hi guys! 
First of all, I want to update you on the past week. I got another article in a magazine  that is called Mag2000! I also put my title on my car so that I can promote it everywhere I go. 

So for my second blog, I wanted to talk to you about my beautiful city that I absolutely love that is Québec City. It is a French speaking town, this is why I am bilingual. It is also one of the oldest towns in Canada (409 years!) since it is where the Europeans first got established when they came to America. Because of that, Quebec City has a lot of history like the fact that we still have buildings that are hundreds years old that are located in old Quebec. This is also the place where we can see our amazing castle, the “Château Frontenac”. Also, the  “Plaines d’Abraham” (a field in old Quebec) is where the French and the English had the battle to see who would run the country. Many soldiers lost their life on these plains. 

Quebec City is also known for its tourist attractions. First of all, it is known for all the history that I mentioned above. It also has six malls, one in which I work and another that features an amusement park, a skating rink and an IMAX theater in its facility. Also, in the summer, we have a huge music festival that is called “Festival d’été de Quebec”. This festival hosts a lot of big names, for example, this year we had Kendrick Lamar, P!nk, Nick Jonas (who we can see in the background of the picture), Backstreet Boys, Flume, Muse and even Metallica! It was a great way to promote my title since there is up to 100 000 people at these shows . Also, in summer as well as in winter, Valcartier Vacation Village has tourists attractions. In the summer, it is a water park and in the winter, it is a big winter playground which is the biggest winter amusement park in North America. It also has an inside water park all year round, called “Bora Park”.
Lastly, I want to talk to you about our amazing gastronomy. It is truly a foodie’s paradise! We have a lot of gourmet cuisine. According to the readers of the Condé Nast traveler, a guide for travelers, “Quebec City is ranked among the 20 world’s best food cities in 2014”. However, we have one of the worst fast food but the best tasting food ever. It is called Poutine and it is fries covered with gravy sauce and Gouda cheese. We also have the best ice cream shop, which is, what I would say, arguably the best in the whole world that is called “Chocolats Favoris”.
To conclude, I really love my peaceful city where everybody is nice, where we have lots to do and where the food is good. It is an honor to share my beautiful city and its amazing history with you. Thank you for reading my blog!

Hi! I’m 18 years old girl currently living what every little girl or even young women dream of. I’m in one of the biggest and oldest beauty pageant. Not bad for a first pageant! Here is the story of how I got here.

First of all, I am a full time student in one of our local colleges and I have a part time job that I absolutely love selling clothes in one of the big malls in my City. So I was just a normal girl before I saw the application for the pageant on Facebook. I didn’t know that it would change the intire course of my 2017 and 2018. 
I first intered in the Miss teen category, but after competing in our regionals they switched me to the adult pageant. I still remember the rush when they called my number up for a crown. It was an amazing feeling. At that time, I didn’t know what was coming in the next few months for me.

My friends and family were so supportive in this project that was taking almost all my free time. They knew it was important for me and that it was a dream that I never got to do young.

This pageant has openned so many areas in my life. I was a really shy girl to begin with and this pageant helped me become a strong and opiniated woman. It has also helped me with my social skills, because of the phone calls we have to do to get sponsors. I even started a YouTube channel! 

Furthermore, this journey has made me live so many great experiences, like meeting local stars such as Peter Mccleod, a humorist, and Mc12, a local band. I also got the chance to talk on stage about me in a local festival as well as getting two articles in newspapers. In the end, the best thing that I did in raising money for the Children’s Wish Foundation to help a child get his wish come true.

So to this point, this competition has been a lot of work but still the greatest thing that has happened to me and a recommend it to everyone that dreamed of doing this.

Thank you for reading my blog! Here are more photos of my journey.
