Sointula beauty vies for Miss Teen crown

SOINTULA – Caitlind Camacho could be the next Miss Teen Canada.

SOINTULA – Caitlind Camacho could be the next Miss Teen Canada.

Camacho, 14, is very excited to be a Miss Teen Canada Globe 2011 National Finalist representing Sointula.

Camacho is currently working hard to raise funds for her entrance fee and airfare to attend National Pageant Week in Toronto this summer. During pageant week delegates from all across Canada will go on various sightseeing tours, dine in different restaurants, make public appearances and paticipate in various fun activities and rehearse for the final event. They will also receive coaching on modeling, photography, health and fitness, public speaking, proper etiquette, personal appearance, wardrobe consultation and hair and make-up application.

All of this helps these women in their overall personal development, elevating confidence and self esteem, improving public-speaking skills and empowering them in many aspects of their lives.

Prizes of cash and scholarships are awarded to the top winners and the holder of the top crown qualifies to represent Canada at Miss Teen World.

The vision of the Miss Canada Globe Productions is “to promote inner beauty and confidence, as well as to provide Canadian women with opportunities to compete for a national title regardless of their height, size or creed,” said the organization’s website. Titleholders advance to international pageants with the opportunity represent Canada and be a role model.

“We believe that this national pageant would provide Canadian women with personal growth, valuable experiences, and a chance to move hearts,” said Globe Productions. Titleholders may appear in their title to assist local charities or a non-profit fundraisers.

Camacho is raising funds through sponsorships and a 50/50 raffle, with tickets available at various Sointula locations. Also, as appreciation to the community, Camacho and her parents Nancy Ann and Dan Knapp are holding a fun free draw on a set of cedar planter boxes.
