I have some crazy good news! Recently I’ve been signed onto an acting agency, McGuin and Associates! And because of this I had the pleasure of working with the very talented mommy to be Jillian Thompson of Instinct Images for some more natural looking head and body shots! This is my dream come true, acting is my passion and is where I want to be in life. It feels as every day I am closer and closer to my destiny.

Some more good news! My school’s rugby season has started up again! Our team came so close to winning it all last year but we sadly came up short ūüôĀ this year we have an incredible drive for success and hopefully we can pull through! The girls on the team and my favourite coaches are so supportive of me winning Miss Teenage Waterloo Region and have my back for Miss Teenage Canada! I’m so blessed to have the team that I do, we are so close knit and these are the girls I’m going to remember after high school because of how they touched my life.

Now I am a firm believer of pushing myself to my fullest potential, never settling for anything other than my best. And every day I push myself to work a little harder, eat a little healthier, really trying to be the best me that I can be. My mom is my number one fan, she supports and encourages me every day. I can’t thank her enough for everything she does, and so with that I encourage you, to¬†be your own kind of beautiful, and never give up on your dreams. With enough determination and practice, I promise you that you can accomplish anything!

“These women are a lot like dragonflies… they are born into water, have to learn to fly on their own, they are graceful yet fighters, and are as beautiful as ever. This is what I believe all of the women in need of these shelters are.” – Kourtney Beckman (Fund Development Manager at the Women’s Crisis Services of Waterloo Region.)

Today; Sunday, March 4th 2017 my family and I had the greatest honour of attending the Terrific Tables Wonderful Women event. It was one of the coolest events ever! Upon arriving we had to decorate tables, my family chose a Canadian theme. There were some incredible tables, there was a table dedicated to Princess Leia and everyone was dressed up like her, there was a medieval times table and all I can say is wow there was some serious effort put into each and every table!

The event officially began at 1:30 with the lovely Jennifer Campbell of Country 106.7, 96.7 CHYM FM, and 570 News. She gave a very warm introduction and said some extremely sweet words about myself and Bardish Chagger. Bardish was honestly one of the nicest ladies I’ve ever met, she is a Member of Parliament for Waterloo, and a leader of Government in the House of Commons and Minister of Small Business and Tourism. Seriously an impressive woman, I cannot wait to connect with her in the future. Then there was food and stand up comedians, a silent auction, really it was an amazing day all around.

At the end of the night, I got a change to meet Helen Jowett who is the Regional Councillor for the Waterloo Region. And the CEO of the Women’s Crisis Services Mary Zilney. I don’t know what the future holds, but I do know it’s going to be incredible.

If you don’t already know, my platform is to end violence against women and working with the Women’s Crisis Services is helping me bring my platform to life. If you want to help be a part of the change or follow any of these amazing women the links are down below!

Hello and welcome to my blog! My name is Kaitlyn and just recently I have won the title of Miss Teenage Waterloo Region. Just typing those words makes me smile, it’s still a surreal feeling to be the Miss Teen of my region. Anyways, let me tell you more about myself. I am 15 years old (soon to be 16 in June), I have a passion for acting, singing, dancing, and music. Basically anything to do with the arts I am a fan of. After high school I want to go to Ryerson University and get a bachelor’s degree in fine arts, and after that or even now hopefully become a successful actress. But for present day I am actively trying to make a difference in my community by getting involved with local events, and the Waterloo region’s women’s crisis services.

My platform for Miss Teenage Canada is to be an advocate for women, and to end sexual assault, harassment, and abuse. Currently I am working with one of my teachers at school to start up a women’s rights non-profit charity and it will hopefully take off by June or July. I do believe my purpose on Earth is to do something incredible and change the world for the better. But for now I’m just a small town girl who loves people and animals, works her tail off in school and sports, and who comes home to the best family in the world. I cannot wait to share my experiences with you all along the way to Miss Teen Canada, and for the rest of my reign. Hope you stick around with me to see and share these amazing days!

Kaitlyn.
