The reason why I am entering Miss Teen BC is to grow as a person, acquire new experiences, meet new people, and enjoy the workshops at the program as well as supporting the Cops for Cancer fundraiser. In this experience I hope to gain confidence and learn more about myself.
Some things that make me unique are my abilities with languages. I speak Japanese, Spanish, and English fluently which gives me the ability to interact with people in different languages. I think this is something that makes me very unique.
I also like to volunteer and help others by teaching them new skills, such as music because I have been playing violin for more than 6 years.
