Hello! I am Lindsey, your Miss Teenage Northern Nova Scotia 2017! I am eager to share this incredible journey with you. But to begin I think its important you get to know me. I am 17 years old born and raised in the small town of Pictou, Nova Scotia. Our town has a strong sense of community and much history attached. I will be graduating from Pictou Academy, one of the oldest high schools in Canada, in June. Our school itself holds so much history and pride. We are a small graduating class of only 31 which has given us the opportunity to become very close. I am looking forward to seeing all of my fellow classmates pursue their dreams and accomplish their goals. With my high school career coming to an end, I am looking forward to beginning a new adventure at Saint Francis Xavier University. In the Fall of 2017, I will enter into the Bachelor of Science in Human Kinetics Program at St.fx.
I am involved in many extra circulars within my school. I have been a part of Students Council as a class representative, Yearbook as a senior photographer, grad and school clothing committee as the head, and also a member of prom committee. Additionally, I am involved in my schools track and field team as a sprinter and a jumper. This diverse group of committees has taught me much about working as a team and has created many strong friendships.
In addition to all of my school activities, I am involved in many community sports. I am an accomplished highland dancer who has had the opportunity to represented Nova Scotia twice at the Canadian Championship. Dance was a big part of my life until age 13 when the sport of gymnastics became my main focus. Gymnastics requires a great deal of dedication as I train 13 plus hours every week at the Pictou County Gymnastics Club. With much hard work I have also made team Nova Scotia for gymnastics while qualifying for the Atlantic Championship.
As well as being involved in many sports I have also taken part in a great deal of music and theatre. I have taken piano and fiddle lessons for many years and with the knowledge I gained from those I self taught myself guitar. I have also been involved in many school musicals and plays including Oliver, Fiddler on the Roof, The Wizard of Oz and The Truth about Cinderella.
Lastly, I wouldn’t be where I am today without the help and support of my wonderful family. I come from a close knit family of four, with my amazing parents David and Denise and my older sister Harmony. I couldn’t ask for better parents. They are incredibly caring and supportive of everything I am involved in. I am beyond grateful to say that my beautiful sister doubles as my best friend. She is 22 years old and is currently enrolled in the Education program at Saint Francis Xavier University. I am extreamly proud of my sister and everything she has done. She has been such an amazing role model for me throughout the years.
