Hello, my name is Jennifer Robitaille and I was recently crowned Miss Teen Central Alberta-World 2012!
Here is a little bit of information about me 🙂
I am eighteen years old and am currently studying for my Bachelor’s Degree in education at Red Deer College to become an elementary school teacher. I absolutely love little kids and to get the opportunity to teach them, to inspire them and to make a difference in their lives is definitely a huge dream of mine.
I was born and raised in Red Deer, Alberta and have spent the last 13 years living on a farm full of animals, chores and adventures. Chickens, turkeys, rabbits, cattle, horses, cats, and dogs were among the variety of animals I grew up with. Believe it or not, I used to sit in the chicken coop and hold the chickens for hours at a time, or even climb under the coop in search of baby kittens.
Because of my height (5’11) I was really encouraged to play sports in high school. Volleyball never really interested me but I did play basketball for 2 years in high school and loved being part of a team.
For 5 years I was part of the Red Deer West 4-H club, which taught me so many new important things about cattle, public speaking and community involvement. I received first place in public speaking for the year 2010 and placed top 3 the following two years. I believe that public speaking is an important quality for people to have; it increases self-confidence and can a very helpful quality for many jobs. 4H also taught me when to let go of a lead rope..You see that big brown furry animal above? He normally doesn’t stand around and wait to have his picture taken!!
One of the things I am most passionate about in life is music. I have been taking piano lessons for the past 8 years and am so glad that I took the time and effort to practice. It truly is fun to be able to play for friends and family on special occasions like Christmas. The songs that I enjoy playing the most are from movies such as Twilight, Legends of the Fall and Pearl Harbor. I also love country music, perhaps because I’m a farm girl 😉 Brad Paisley is my all time favorite country singer. I hope to one day see him in concert!
Modeling is another one of my passions in life. I have been modelling since the age of 13 and am currently with an agency in Calgary with the hopes of soon travelling internationally to model. I have received numerous awards for modeling including Faces Model of the Year in 2009, first runner up in a runway competition, first runner up in a photography competition and a $1000 prize for 4th place in a photography contest. I have also been in 2 magazines and a billboard for a bridal magazine, been in several runway shows and was part of 2 Redken hair shows in Red Deer.
It is such an incredible experience to be chosen to be in a pageant and let alone win a title. I am very excited for the Miss Teen Canada-World 2012 pageant in July and cannot wait to be part of all the exciting new experiences, learn tons of new things and be part of such a life-changing event. I am certain that it will be an event that I will cherish for the rest of my life. Hopefully you learned a little bit more about me and continue to learn more about me on my journey!
