I want to fill you guys in on what I’ve been up to since I was crowned!
In the beginning of February I was lucky enough to have two interviews and both of Peterborough’s local papers: Peterborough This Week and The Peterborough Examiner (<- click there to read the article from The Peterborough Examiner).This was really great because I was able to introduce myself to my community and talk about my journey through the Miss Teen Ontario World pageant!
February 29th I was interviewed by a local radio station 100.5 Kruz fm to talk about Anti-Bullying day. We discussed the importance of everyone being more tolerant of eachother and how bullying is not always the typical things we think of (Pushing , shoving, name calling, etc.) Bullying can also be excluding people, or just laughing at the jokes people say about others.
March 7th I volunteered at the 2nd anual Peterborough Speaker Series which is where people come and share their stories and life experiences. This year the theme was inspiration and the speakers were nothing less than inpirational and brave to tell their stories. For this event I took tickets, greeted the guests and served dinner to the speakers. It was a lot of fun !
March 11th I got in touch with my Irish roots and was a part of the St. Patrick’s Day parade. Now, with a last name like Potvin it may be hard to believe that I am Irish but I am Irish on my mom’s side and I made my Grandpa O’Hara very proud!
March 31st I volunteered at a BBQ to raise money in support of Easter Seals. For anyone who doesn’t know, Easter Seals is a organization that helps children with disabilities. The fundraiser I helped with was specifically to help send kids to summer camps. It was so much fun and everyone was very nice, supportive and happy to donate!
Thank you all so much for taking the time to read this post! I’ll be posting more soon.
