For our second blog assignment we had to create a rollup poster design, so that the amazing people at Sign Source Solutions could create a rollup for miss teenage Canada to use , but will only be selecting one to used. This assignment was meant to test our creative abilities and strengths. As someone who struggles with technology , I’d say this was an amazing idea for an assignment. I proved to my self that I have a creative set of genes in there somewhere and all it took was some inspiration and a drive to push my self to try something new.

Welcome to my home :)

 

 

Hello again family and friends and people of Canada, your Miss Teenage Langley Township here to talk to you about the beautiful place I call home and I’m not just talking about living in BC , but nuzzled just north of Vancouver is a nice place called Langley. Now here in Langley we have the township and the city of Langley. If my title didn’t give it away I live in the township. The township of Langley stretches from Fort Langley to aldergrove. The township is basically like a town with many little towns within it.

Here is a small list of places in the township.        Aldergrove.                                                               Brookwood.                                                             Fernridge.                                                                   Fort Langley.                                                              Milner.                                                                      Murrayville.                                                                Willoughby.                                                              -Walnut Grove

Now generally when someone says let’s visit Langley most people think Fort Langley or the Greater Vancouver Zoo. I’m going to one of those people and focus on Fort Langley.

Fort Langley is a beautiful gem amongst many of the historic towns in British Columbia and it’s filled with history , colour and leaves you with a feeling of whimsy. From the historic buildings to the architecture of the fences and shops, you take a step back into time. If you are feeling like taking a long walk in nature and enjoying the views of the river , the greenery and even the wild life such as birds and other little forest mammals and frogs, then the Fort to Fort trail is for you, just keep your eyes and ears peeled for trains as they are quite loud. If you are the type of person that likes to cozy up with a nice cup of coffee, tea, or hot chocolate then Wendels coffee shop and book store is the place for you. The staff will welcome you with big smiles and delicious beverages and yummy food. If you have heard of the TV show Once Upon A Time then you will probably know that Fort Langley’s town hall is the home of the storybrooke town hall , now the new name of this bright yellow historic building, the town hall happens to be a favourite for many film crews such as the air buddy series which continued to the puppy version snow buddies , Santa buddies ect. It is also the home of the Fort Langley women’s institute. Now when you first drive into Fort Langley you will see a church , a cemetery and the birth place of bc museum, these three places are what first take you back into time, the trees that line the road cover at first and the open up to the more downtown district where you will find all the food and shops , such as the little White House, say cheese , Gasoline Alley ( which has a hidden bead shop in the back corner that is accessible when the gates are open), the 50’s diner, gelato , antiques , Beatnik’s bistro, And so much more. If you are up early enough you may even catch the rowers on the river. Near the river where the train runs is an old train station where you can see old tracks and the board that told you what train was coming when. There is a place called the Fort pub and grill just across the track and if you are up for it you can walk across the bridge to McMillan island.

Fort Langley has something for everyone , child to adult , hipster to posh, I garuntee this will be a place you and your family will love going back to go and explore, with many many photo ops along the way, garuntee you will make memories to last a life time , even if it means just going to drive around the surrounding farm roads to look at the scenery.

Come for a visit 🙂

Hello British Columbia and the rest of Canada, my name is Mikaela and I am your current reigning Miss Teenage Langley Township ( Miss Teenage Langley ) for short.

I am so honoured to be representing such a beautiful city. It’s taken me a long time to get here and when I received my title I was so over joyed.

Growing up I struggled with my body image and was bullied a lot. I was always very tiny and underweight so to most of the kids I went to school with I looked funny. I didn’t understand how the people who I was always friendly to could be so cruel.

In about grade 6 I had just turned twelve and my mom saw an ad in the paper for a beauty pageant for young girls. I got so excited that I would get to dress up like a princess for the day. The day of the pageant came and I didn’t place, but that was okay I still had a tiara to take home and got an award for prettiest smile. But aside from not placing and getting my award, that day was the first day I felt confident about who I was, that day changed my life forever. Over the next couple years I continued to do some more little pageants and started placing and learning how to be more confident each time. At fourteen I saw an ad for miss teenage Canada and was in awe. I talked to my mom and we signed up and I did my interview and got accepted to compete that year in 2012. I spent the next while prepping for the pageant. Pageant weekend came and boy was I nervous, I met my first friend Sabrina, and Amanda. We stuck together the whole weekend and with a group of about 45 girls so many young ladies who I could meet and get to know over the weekend. We were all so young and this was an amazing learning curve for us all, at the end of the weekend neither of us placed, but Sabrina and I promised eachother that one day when we were ready we would come back. Sabrina went back in 2014 and was the reigning miss teenage southern Alberta that year, boy was I ever proud of her. Now flash forward two  years and now it’s my turn, she helped me prepare and even was there for the weekend to help volunteer, I was so happy to have her there with me, just like we had done our first time four years before. Now I embark on my journey, in that time I have grown , matured and blossomed into who I am today.

I was very blessed growing up too, my family always made sure my siblings and I were always active and learning.

We were raised in the beautiful outdoors that British Columbia has to offer. Fishing , camping and long drives were always fun. I remember going on road trips for family vacations and seeing so many amazing places on my travels.

I can’t wait to post more, follow me on my journey and for updates

-Mikaela
