A Thompsonite is headed to Toronto next month to vie for the title of Miss Teen Canada Globe.
Avery Lagimodiere, a student at Burntwood School, will be entering her first pageant following experience in both dance and figure staking.
According to her mother, Avery has always expressed interest in pageants though hasn’t been able to make it to audition locations.
The 13-year-old, who admits that she’s nervous about the competition, says that she wants to be a role model for Aboriginal girls her age, show them not to be scared to go out, and to simply be you.
Each participant of the contest, which runs from August 16th through the 26th, will be judged based on traditional pageant criteria like interview skills, a unique talent and evening gown attire.
