Proud to represent city

British Columbia Ambassador Program contestant grateful to sponsors and people of Penticton

Thank you very much to everyone who supported me as a candidate for the British Columbia Ambassador Program this year. The British Columbia Ambassador Pageant was held on Aug. 17 and 18 and I am proud to say that I represented Penticton very well.

Unfortunately, I did not bring the title home with me, but I had a wonderful experience and I was a finalist in promoting, fundraising, talent, speech, sponsorships and people’s choice. I won first place in the fundraising and promotion awards and I am very happy to have earned scholarship money to go towards my college education.

The British Columbia Ambassador Program allows the candidates to run again a second time and I will be taking this opportunity. I enjoyed being involved in the community and volunteering at various events. It was an honour to represent Penticton. Thank you again to all my sponsors and the people of Penticton for supporting me these past few months.
