Hey everybody, my name is Chanelle, and I’m Miss Teenage Wheatland County for 2018! I’m currently in grade 9, I live in Strathmore, AB, which is one of the communities that makes up Wheatland County. I come from a blended family with four siblings, me being the oldest. I value my relationship with family, even though they drive me crazy sometimes, they have taught me responsibility and having compassion. At school I’m on the basketball team, badminton, captain of the volleyball team, and have gone to zone twice for track and field in long jump, relay, 1500 m, and have also placed at counties. Education is something I value quite highly. I have received honors and honors with distinction two years in a row. Outside of school I enjoy hanging out with friends, reading up about the latest fashion, taking photos, and doing mixed material arts. I’ve been doing MMA for the past 3 years. I like learning self-defense and staying healthy.  After high school, I hope to attend Ambrose University to get a acting diploma, along with getting a bachelor’s degree in education, so I have a fall back plan in case being a actress isn’t successful enough to be a full-time job.

I decided to pursue the pageant because it would give me the opportunity to gain life experiences and gain more confidence. However the main driving force was the volunteering and charities you get to work with. In turn this gives me a voice to purse my passion for education. My platform is to raise awareness and money for WE Charities which provides education among other things such as water, food and health care to under developed countries. I plan to sell rafiki bracelets, made by mommas in Kenya that gives them money and the charity, at local events.

I am very thankful for this experience and can’t wait to see what it all brings. Stay tuned for more blogs in the near future.
