Ashcroft teen competes for Miss Teen Canada

Jessica Mazar, 16, represents Miss Teen Southern BC Globe.

Sixteen year old Jessica Mazar of Ashcroft is hoping for a shot at the title. She wants to be Miss Teen Canada Globe 2012.

Mazar was selected last October to represent Ashcroft and southern BC at the national level, and is excitedly looking forward to the pageant in Toronto this October. She is still looking for sponsors to help her get there.

Revelations Hair Design in Ashcroft has sponsored her by helping with her hair and makeup, she said, but she’s still trying to raise the funds for her air fare, $3,000 entrance fee and other odds and ends.

“Just getting this was really exciting,” she said. “I wanted to see if I could do it, and I could.”

Mazar says she has her heart set on modelling, and she thinks participating in the pageant will help give her the exposure she needs as well as a big dose of self confidence.

She says her parents have been really supportive of her involvement with the beauty pageant, and have helped her as much as they can. Now she’s asking the community to step in and help her raise the rest of the money she needs.

People, either individuals or businesses, can contact her to find out how they can be of assistance, or just to ask her about the pageant.

Miss Canada Globe Productions was founded in May 2000 to restore the glamour of pageants with a stronger focus on education and equality. Pageant winners can compete internationally.
