For Miss Quesnel candidate 17-year-old Lindy Alec, entering the program was taking a huge step outside her comfort zone, crediting the program for increased self-confidence and improved public speaking skills. One of Alec’s favourite things about being in the Miss Quesnel program is the opportunity to try new things that she probably would never get the opportunity to do otherwise, such as greeting people coming into Quesnel on the Rocky Mountaineer. It has served as a learning opportunity on many different levels for the young candidate including learning the history of her sponsor the Nazko First Nations Band. Alec’s talent will be First Nations art, focusing on drawing.
Join all the candidates for speech and talent night July 3 and witness the crowning of 2014’s Miss Quesnel July 5 in Chuck Mobley Theatre.
