Hello! My name is Karina and I am this years Miss Teenage lower mainland B.C! This is my first time in a pageant and since I had such an amazing & memorable time at Miss Teen B.C, I cannot wait for this summer’s Miss Teenage Canada. I have always wanted to share my love for public speaking, art, and education with the world, so thank you to all who made my platform become possible.
Let me tell you a bit about myself:
I am currently working on raising money for UNICEF to send children to a sustainable school environment. To do so, I applied what I was best at: my art. I designed t-shirts and created a campaign “Let Us Bloom” to raise money and along this project i discovered new ways to reach out to my community. One of my many dreams is to open up an online store where the profits would all go to a charity supporting Education. I also used my love for art for the better cause by drawing other people’s pictures with my own personal touch. The profit made here also went to UNICEF.
Another form of art i do is photography. When i went on a trip to a village in China, i captured shots of the native people to bring back to Canada and open a new perspective to our local folks. I showed a world they’ve never seen before and got lots of positive feedback. My photos were displayed in my highschool and to my community.
In my free time, I tutor and teach art classes to kids in elementary. I hope one day I can work in the educational field and help children learn in my community and across the world.
Thank you for supporting my dreams and aspirations as I grow with this title of Miss Teenage Lower Mainland. Here’s to all the great things that will come!
