It was a challenge to see what she could accomplish. Shaylee Jack, 16, was encouraged to join the Miss Quesnel program with promises of a wonderful experience and Jack says she is not disappointed. It’s given her the chance to learn new skills, meet interesting people and make new friends through the course of the program. This experience has helped her through the challenges of public speaking and she has become more outgoing overall.
Jack’s sponsor, the Lhtako Dene First Nation, has been encouraging and even brought her closer together with her family. Her talent will be beading. With this program Jack has learned just to keep going and trying new things because you never know what could happen.
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.
