Hey everyone! My name is Jamie and I’m 18 years old. I’m currently enrolled at the University of Regina in the area of social work. I’m taking my classes at the Regional Parkland College in Yorkton and I just finished my finals yesterday! Woohoo! I’ve been very busy with my finals, preparing for my journey to Toronto this summer, and getting ready for my new summer job! This summer I will be the manager of the Canora Swimming Pool and I am so excited!
I also work in Yorkton at the Gallagher Centre Waterpark as a lifeguard and swim instructor. Teaching and working with children has always been a passion of mine, and I always look forward to swimming lessons as I am lucky to always have such great students! Besides swimming, my other interests include acting, dancing, sports and spending time with my amazing friends and family! I am also a farm girl, always have been and no matter where I go, I always will be at heart!
I am very close with my family. My mom and dad are the greatest, most supportive parents in the world and I love them both with all my heart. I have the three coolest little brothers too! Dustin, Blake and Sheldon are so much fun to be around and they never fail to make me laugh! My parents, being the caring people they are, are also foster parents. With that comes two more awesome little brothers! Ashton fits right in with the other three boys and makes sure I go for my runs every morning! Haha! Cali is the newest addition to our family and he is by far the youngest! He’s only six months old and he is the cutest baby ever! With the five boys, my parents and myself, our house is very full, loud and unpredictable. My aunties, uncles and cousins have always been super supportive of me, and now with the pageant, they are even more supportive! Grandma Merle (G Merle) is the coolest grandma in the world. Everyone that knows her calls her grandma! Whenever I have a problem, G Merle is the one I go too!! On the topic of family, I would just like to say that I am who I am today because of my grandma Ruth. She always encouraged me to believe in myself and chase my dreams, and I know she would be so proud of me for this accomplishment!! RIP Grandma Ruth!!! <3
My platform is to inspire young women to be confident in themselves, because I believe when a young woman is confident in who she is, thats when her true beauty shines through. Society and the media have this unrealistic expectation of the “perfect” female and so many women feel the pressure to fit that image! Ladies! Stop trying to be someone you arent, there is no such thing as perfect. Once you start loving you for you, then you’ll start to feel beautiful. Being the “perfect” image will never happen….no such thing as perfect! I am far from perfect….but I’m okay with it, because I’m still beautiful in my OWN way!
I just want to say thank you to everyone who is supporting me on my journey to Toronto. You guys are much appreciated and your support means the world to me! I am looking forward to meeting all the girls in at the pageant in Toronto and am beyond excited to see the girls from Sask again!!!
Thats all for now, talk to you soon!
