Hello all! Welcome to my blog!

I am very blessed and thrilled to announce that I am your new Miss Teenage Six Nations 2015!

Olive watching Miss America being crowned

To say I am excited for the opportunity to participate in Miss Teenage Canada would be an understatement. Going to nationals is a literal dream come true for me. Since I was 11 years old, I have watched the winners get crowned, followed their journeys, rooted for my favourites as they went for the crown at nationals, and eagerly awaited for the day when it would be my turn to walk across that stage. It wouldn’t be wrong to compare me to Olive Hoover from Little Miss Sunshine, pretending to be the winner as she watches Miss America being crowned. This is a bit off topic, but Little Miss Sunshine also happens to be one of my all-time favourite movies.

Honestly, simply being able to participate in Miss Teenage Ontario was a huge accomplishment for me. I have been doing pageants for a few years now, but they’ve all been smaller local pageants. The main goal of all of those were to practice my public speaking skills, since it has always been hard for me to do things like that. I have dealt with generalized panic disorder and social anxiety almost my entire life, and I use performing as a way to cope with these.

Dancing is one of the types of performance I use, and it has always been a huge part of my life. Simply being onstage has a tremendous positive effect on me. When I dance, I am never nervous from the fact that I’m in front of a crowd. It’s always exhilarating; it’s a feeling I savour. For me, dance is the moment I step onstage and the music begins. That’s what makes the hours put into perfecting a routine worth it.  This is why dancing is one of my main passions.

Well, I suppose this would be a good time for a proper introduction. My name is Aleria and I am 15 years old. As you already know, I love pageants and dancing. I also write short stories, and I enjoy theatre. Honestly, I love everything related to the arts. Music, singing, dancing, acting. Music is a big part of my life, and I love all styles. As I write this, White Winter Hymnal by Fleet Foxes, my current favourite song is on repeat. I’m also a huge movie junkie, I love anything from horror to indie to romantic comedy and everything inbetween. If you give me an open schedule and a rainy day, I can spend hours

My friends and I, dressed up for Halloween!

on Netflix rewatching my favourite movies. On the opposite end of the spectrum, I love staying busy and doing things with my friends. My friends are super important to me, and I love spending time with them. We love laughing together, and hang out whenever we can. Besides that, I’m very interested in astronomy. I love space and knowing that we are only a tiny part of a vast and infinite universe. This is why I plan to study astrophysics, so I can learn more about our universe and how it works.

I reside in the large, but close-knit community, Six Nations of the Grand River. We are the most highly populated reservation in Canada, with approximately 25 000 band members. I try my best to be connected to my culture, and it is something very close to my heart. On my mothers side, I am Haudenosaunee and Ojibway. On my fathers side, I am Cree and Dene. There are also small traces of Metis on both sides. My area hasn’t had a representative since 2011, so I am very honoured and proud to be representing my beautiful and supportive reserve on a national level. I look forward to what my future holds, stay tuned for more updates throughout my reign!

XOXO,

Aleria

“Carole can fix it” is a new half hour reality makeover show. Carole, obviously is the star of the show. The cameras are going to be following her around in her everyday life. Whats interesting about this makeover show is that Carole just randomly picks people off of the streets unexpectidly. She then tells them her opinion, and asks them if she can help change there style. Carole then takes them to her home to start fixing their hair and makeup. After all that is done, she takes them to a store to start shopping. That is the best part. Carole is also a shopaholic so this is her way of using her shopping addiction to help other people. Carole feels she is just helping the world, one person at a time.

Sponsors

I feel that my t.v. show would really benefit from goody (http://www.goody.com) and stylexchange (http://www.stylexchange.com) and they could also have equal opportunities to benefit from me. While doing hair, I could be using all goody products and promoting them. And while shopping I could only shop at stylexchange to promote their shop, and clothing. It would be great publicity for both brands.

What is “Free The Children” ?

Free The Children is the world’s largest network of children helping children, through education. There are more than one million youth involved in the innovative education and development programs in 45 countries. Free The Children was founded in 1995 by Craig Kielburger, an international child rights activist.

Where did it all begin?

Free The Children began with a young grade 7, named Craig Kielburger. One morning while looking through the paper for the comics he came across a headline that read “Battled Child Labor, Boy, 12, Murdered”. A Pakistani boy, had escaped child slavery at age nine and, was speaking up for child rights when he was murdered at age 12. Craig seen this and took it to his classroom that day and asked if anyone would help him speak up for child rights for this young boy. Eleven hands shot up, and  Free The Children was born.

Our Contributions

As one of our duties for the Miss Teen Canada-World Pageant, each delegate is suppose to raise $400 or more. I have raised atleast $500 so far. I’ve been regularly fundraising at my community bingo hall, selling 50/50 tickets and scratchboards. I’ve also sold tickets for a hockey pool board for the stanley cup. My family has helped me fundraise alot for the charity.

Partners

There are many partners that help Free The Children, the one that caught my eye was  B. B.  is a brand of toys. They believe that all children of the world deserve a chance at childhood. One toy bought here helps a child across the world, it sounds as if they were made to be partners with Free The Children. The charity recieves 10¢ from every B. toy purchased.

My home town is Six Nations, Ontario. It is located alongside of the Grand River. Six iroquois nations make up the Six Nations reserve. The six nations are; Mohawk, Cayuga, Onondaga, Tuscarora, Oneida and Seneca. Six Nations is the largest reserve in Canada, with approximately 22,000 registered band members.

My community hosts various events over the year such as; Bread and cheese which is a thank you celebration from the queen of England for the aboriginals that fought in the war for her. At this celebration we have a parade that leads into our arena where each and every person receives one piece of bread and one piece of cheese. At this time, we also have a fair to help celebrate this special day. Bread and cheese is held on Victoria day. (The picture above is me, Miss Teen Six Nations of the Grand River Territory, and our own Miss Teen Six Nations holding bread and cheese)

Another big event is Community Awareness week. This is a week long event that consists of organizations promoting their services by enabling the community to participate in free bbq’s, draws, games, tours and many other events.

Six Nations is also the hometown to many prestigious individuals such as; Stan Jonathan (retired NHL Boston Bruins player), Pauline Johnson (poetist), Tom Longboat (long-distant runner), Tia Smith (former Miss Indian World), Dakota Brant (former Miss Indian World), that is just to name a few.

(above, is a picture of Stan Jonathan and I with his Boston Bruins jersey)

In closing I am very proud to be apart of my community. They say “It takes a community to raise a child” and the support I’ve recieved is an indication that my community has helped raise me.

Hello, I’m Carole General from Six Nations, Ontario and I’m really interested in baseball, lacrosse, bowling, golfing, making new friends, and taking silly pictures

Here’s a picture of me doing what I do best…                
taking a silly photo with Scooby and Shaggy at Disney land in Florida! I was on a regular family vacation and these two crazy characters, from one of my favorite childhood cartoons , came up from behind me and were pulling on my pig tails :)

I am in the process of graduating from Assumption College high school this year. Throughout my high school journey I’ve been apart of….

O.S.A.I.D ( Ontario Students Against Impaired Driving) , the lacrosse team, and the ACS cheerleading team
