Clean Meals is a company that makes quick ready to go meals, not only are the meals delicious, but they are very nutritious as well. They offer a variety of meals to choose from, including vegan. The meals are all very filling, as they are the perfect portion size to fill your hunger. Since I am vegetarian, I was able to get the vegan meal. There were a couple of different options in vegan as well, which gave me options to choose from. I ended up choosing a pasta and tofu meal with freshly cut veggies for lunch, and a sweet potato meal with quinoa and freshly cut veggies for dinner. All I had to do was place the meal in the microwave, and it was ready to eat in one minute. Quick healthy meals are very important, especially when you don’t have much time to prepare a meal. Eating healthy is crucial, especially during pageants, as you need energy for all the dancing and rehearsals. If you eat healthy, you will be energized for the whole day!

Prime Asia TV is a punjabi based channel. I was invited to give an interview in Hindi about how I earned my title of Miss Teenage Peel 2o18 and my preparation for Miss Teenage Canada. I did a small photoshoot with them at my house and had an interview with my entire family. My parents were also part of the interview, and expressed how they had felt about my journey and some of the hard times that they had felt. I wanted the main message of the interview to be to let parents allow their kids to express their individuality and allow them to follow their dreams. I also wanted to take the stigma away from modelling, and show how modelling is not all about beauty, and that inner beauty is also very important. I was able to share my platform, and how I was going to serve the community. I am very thankful for the opportunity, and hope to have another interview soon!

I was invited to be a part of FOG Canada. FOG is the short form for Friends of Gujarat Canada. This organization recognizes people of the Gujarati culture that have made a difference to the community. I was invited by one of the committee members, as they found out that I had won a title in Miss Teenage Canada. I gave a speech on my inspiration  to participate in this pageant, and some of the struggles that came along the way. One of the main struggles I faced was other people’s opinions on me participating, as well as the stigma surrounding pageants. I had the opportunity to meet the councillor of my Brampton ward, and discuss the plans I had to launch my own NGO to help with kids education and extracurricular activities. I also got the chance to meet other great young individuals who had made a difference and served the community. I am very thankful for my plaque and will cherish it forever. I will keep it as a reminder to keep helping the community and make a difference!

Thank you to Rowntree Public School and Khalsa Malton for inviting me to speak about my journey to Miss Teenage Canada to the students. I had a great time inspiring young students to strive for their best and reach for the students. I was invited to present on Indian Heritage Day by one of the teachers at the school. The students asked me great questions about how I entered the competition, and how I proceeded to win the title of Miss Teenage Peel 2018. In addition, I also gave many tips and tricks that helped my throughout school. I gave them motivational speeches and ways to make their school career more worthwhile! The biggest message I want to give to young girls is that they can study and also follow their dreams. Education is really important, however, it is also very crucial that one develops other crucial communication skills. Being well rounded is very important as that helps you become a better individual in the workplace!

          Hello everyone, my name is Jinkle and I am so thrilled to be your new Miss Teenage Peel 2018! Last year around this time, I had no idea that my dream of becoming a finalist would become a reality, I decided to give it a shot and here I am today writing this blog! I am 18 years old, and am studying Psychology at the University of Toronto. This is the first of the many pageants that I plan on participating in.

          I was born in Gujarat, India, but have spent the last 16 years in Canada. My family has always been very involved in the events around the community, as well as various cultural events. While growing up, I spent most of my time at the local community centre taking swimming, skating, soccer, basketball and gymnastic lessons. In addition to this, I also took singing and classical dancing lessons. Winning the Peel title means a lot to me, as I have spent the majority of my life exploring this area. I grew up attending all the city events for Christmas, Easter, Canada Day, etc, so to get a chance to represent my city at events with this title is more than a dream come true!

          With this title, I hope to bring awareness to reduce the stigma behind mental health. I will be volunteering at shelters and will work with people who are suffering from mental disorders. As well, I will be giving motivational speeches at different organizations about the importance of education and post-secondary education. As well as speaking to the youth, I will also be interacting with parents and will answer any questions or concerns they have regarding the generation gap between themselves and their kids.

          So far on my journey, I have done a few television and radio interviews, been featured in some newspapers, participated in fashion shows, photoshoots, gave speeches, done a few ads and have attended women’s day conferences. I continue to look forward to use my title for not only my personal benefit, but also to contribute to my community. Not everyone is given such an opportunity, for most it remains just a dream, so I will not let any second go to waste, and will always accept new challenges and opportunities that come my way with a positive outlook.

          I want to thank my friends and family who have supported me on my journey so far, especially my mom, who was the reason I decided to apply for this pageant in the first place. That’s all for now, but I would love for you to follow my journey through social media. Feel free to leave any comments or contact me on social media, I would love to chat with you. Thank you for taking the time to read my first blog, there will be many more to come! Until next time, bye!

2016 Search for Miss Teenage Canada has officially begun!

As a regional delegate from Ontario. I arrived at 3:30pm, from Mississauga Ontario.

At 6:30pm we arrived into the ballroom at the Airport Holiday Inn in Toronto to attend the Opening Ceremonies of the 2016 Search for Miss Teenage Canada. I could not help but feel excited and anxious at the same time, considering the fact that I was surrounded by fifty five beautiful delegates from all over Canada. The evening consisted of laughter, smiles and, not to mention, a lot of hugs and “nice to meet you’s”. The ballroom was lit up with, not only beautiful chandeliers and beautiful smiles, but tables where some of our generous sponsors of Miss Teenage Canada set up and provided us with the most wonderful gifts. So… meeting new friends, taking pictures all day and receiving free gifts from sponsors? Yea, you can definitely say it was a great start to a great week. IMG_5255

“The prettiest thing you could wear is your smile.”-Unknown

1467749491016All day I could not help but smile. Being apart of such an amazing event and organization is surreal so sometimes I find myself pinching myself to make sure this is not a dream. Being a delegate for Miss Teenage Canada, it is important to have beautiful, white teeth that sparkle just like our crowns. Great looking teeth and clean oral hygiene is important;  especially when you are standing on stage in front of judges, family and friends. Thats why, thanks to our generous sponsors from Archer Dental, us delegates are able to look and feel our absolute best by helping make our smiles just a little more bright and glamourous.

Nuvango

Okay, okay, I have to admit that I have a little obsession when it comes to clothes. I love fashion and always have ever since I could remember.  I have always enjoyed watching and learning fashion and what it stands for. Truth is, fashion does not have a rule book, as so my ten year old self thought. Instead, it is all about the individual and their confidence in the clothing she/he is wearing. Fashion allows people to step out of their comfort zones while looking unique and beautiful which is what Nuvango provides. Nuvango is a beautiful clothing company that offers unique and original clothing. Seeing a pile of clothes on the table and having the opportunity to choose one of the clothing pieces was the most difficult decision. All of the pieces were so beautiful in their own way which made it almost impossible to choose from. After a while of trying to decide, i had finally came to a decision. I chose this original crop-top that I am so excited to show off in the streets. Thank you so much to the people at Nuvango for your kindness in sponsoring Miss Teenage Canada and providing us, the delegates, with beautiful clothing pieces.IMG_5238 (1)

Just when you thought it could not get better…It does. They make a single feed URL to which our parents and friends can subscribe to follow along in real time as we experience all the different activities here in Toronto.

IMG_5221Everyone loves chocolate; from dark chocolate, to milk chocolate to chocolate filled with cranberries, Sweets Canada has it all. Just when you thought they could not get any better, they do because the chocolate is topped off with fine sprinkles of flower p
edals. Sam Dhutia from Sweets Canada was present at the welcome party providing us girls with gift bags and samples of edible flower chocolate bars and gourmet chocolate bars.

The dark chocolate with edible flower bars had a rich taste along with a sweIMG_5343 (1)et touch. Every bite was felt like I was trying it for the first time all over again because each bite was equally as tasty. It was, honestly, the best chocolate bar that I have ever tasted.

Bradlee Ryall Golf Academy

July brg-logo-green20th, 2016 was the first time that I have golfed and I had a blast. I surprised myself and did well for my first attempt which I am very proud of. We had lessons from the welcoming gentlemen at Bradlee Ryall Golf Academy by the names of Ian, Jonathan and Mario and learned a lot from them.IMG_5340 They were present at the welcome sponsors party as well and provided some details about the location. I defiantly recommend Bradlee Ryall Golf Academy for anyone who wants to have a relaxing and adventurous time while learning how to excel in golf.

Archer’s Arena

At the event there was a bow and arrow and we all took turns trying to hit the target that was set up in the ballroom. We all shared some laughs and smiles because it was an experience trying to hit the target. I am so thrilled to play Archery Tag in Toronto at Archers Arena on Thursday, July 21, 2016 and make some more great memories. Make sure to look for the hashtag #archerytag Thursday night. 1468367299686

Bata Shoe Museum

On Tuesday, July 19 we visited the Bata Shoe logo-bsm-bkMuseum which was a very educational experience. The most interesting thing was seeing Shaquille Owhic’neal’s shoes. We learned that his shoe size is twenty two  I thought was very interesting.

Growing up I struggled with art and creativity. I considered myself to have a big imagination but I, unfortunately,  never really knew how to put my thoughts and ideas onto paper. As I grew older, so did my capabilities. Therefore, with that said, I have become better at making my dreams and thoughts a reality. When I saw that one of our blog assignments included designing a Miss Teenage Canada banner, I was excited for the challenge.

I wanted to make my design simple while having it “say a lot” without having it “say too much”. Women are naturally and simply beautiful and do not need makeup and expensive clothing to make themselves beautiful. With that said, like women, this design did not need a lot to make it perfect and I wanted to make that noticed. Less is more and I am proud to share my banner design.

Thank you to the generous people at Sign Source Solution for donating a roll-up banner to the organization of Miss Teenage Canada.

“Make your heart like a lake, with calm, still surface, and great depths of kindness.”-Anonymous

As humans we are blessed with our great five senses: Seeing, touching, hearing, tasting and smelling. They contribute to our memories by triggering certain familiar senses. In my opinion, the greatest attraction to visit in Mississauga is Port Credit; a relaxing neighbourhood seen as a “vacation-type” location while only being five minutes away from my home. All five senses are triggered when I hear, see, touch, smell and taste something that reminds me of and brings me back to those special moments that I shared with my family at Port Credit.

Every Sunday to this day, my parents and I go to Port Credit to relax and take a break from our aaabusy lives to just enjoy with each other. We have a little secret spot behind the trees, on the rocks, alongside Lake Ontario, where us three set up our picnic blanket while enjoying the food that we all contributed cooking together. Every time I eat ice-cream, it takes me back to those moments where I would persuade my dad to buy my mom and I an ice-cream from “Dairy-Cream” located in Port-Credit. Whenever I hear geese, I remember the geese in Port-Credit fighting over the tiny bread crumbs I would feed them. Going to Port-Credit was like a home away from home. It was such a simple, nearby get-away that we all enjoyed and made into a tradition. Walking around in Port-Credit is like being in a movie. Everything in site is so beautiful that it seems too perfect to be real. While my parents and I sit on the rocks, I cannot help but think about how calm the waves of the lake are. Hearing the water clash onto the rocks brings me to a peaceful, and restful state of being. Sitting and listening to God’s natural creation is therapy for me which is why visiting Port-Credit once a week is necessary. Mississauga is a fast developing city, which is great. However, although it is becoming a city filled with malls and tall buildings, visiting places like Port Credit that “takes you away” from the city while still being in it allows people to take a break from their busy schedules for a moment and reflect on themselves.

Port Credit is the go to place on Canada Day, as it is where mostly all of the people residing in Mississauga attend on July 1st to enjoy the beautiful day. It is where the people of the big city gather together and act as one united community while listening to live music and participating in games. Port Credit has a special place in my heart and I plan to carry on my families’ tradition by sharing it with my future husband and children later on down the road.

Entering into the pageant in July is one of the most stressful yet most exciting things that I have had to deal with so far. Being in Grade twelve, having a part-time job, volunteering, and participating in Miss Teenage Canada can be a lot on someone’s shoulders… especially if they don’t have financial support. Liuna Local 183, which is a union located in North York, Ontario, has been generous with their contribution to my participation in this pageant taking place in July by offering me a sponsorship. Not only are they supporting me, an individual trying to make a difference, but other’s who need support in the workforce as well. This blog post is dedicated to the people of Liuna Local 183 and I would like to make my gratitude towards the company known by sharing with you all the kindness in their hearts for showing me their major support throughout this important milestone in my life.
