She’s beauty and she’s grace with a love for pickles, she’s Miss TEENage Kootenays 2014. For those who have not gotten the privilege to meet Cranbrook’s very own Miss TEENage Kootenays 2014 there will be many more opportunities coming up this month. Kyrie Jackson was awarded the title of Miss Teenage KOOTENAY 2014 earlier this year and will compete for the title of Miss TEENage Canada 2014 on July 26th. She’s very excited and can’t wait for the next step in the process.

Kyrie has done many fundraisers in the community for Cardiac for Kids, Free the Children, Relay for Life and will do Paws for a Cause in September. During her reign so far as Miss TEENage Kootenays, Kyrie advocates for animals rights. She is signing petitions to stop animal abuse, getting petitions signed to stop bylaws of animals being sold in pet stores, rescuing animals from shelters and will be volunteering at the local SPCA this fall. Kyrie hopes that she will eventually save all the animals starting with those in her community and then around the world.

However, Kyrie’s journey wouldn’t have been possible without all of her sponsors, The Fraternal Order of Eagles Ladies Auxiliary, The Fraternal order of Eagles 3032, Trans Canada Pipeline Cranbrook, Canadian Tire, Spring Honda, Denham Ford, Alpine Toyota, The United Church, Kootenay Import Auto Group, Bridge Interiors, Northstar GM, Pentecostal Church and her dedicated family and friends. She thanks each one of her supporters and sponsors as they have helped her come this far. She’s super grateful and will never forget their generosity and support.

Regardless of the outcome at Nationals in Toronto; Kyrie will try for Miss Universe, Miss Supernational and other pageants around the world. She believes that you don’t have to be someone else to please others you just have to be yourself, work hard for what you want and go for it and not try to be something you’re not. Kyrie’s advice for other girls wanting to be in pageants is “Just be yourself and don’t put on a fake face for the pageant because if you win you’re still going to have to be putting on that face throughout all your events! Be proud of who you are and what you have accomplished because you are your own kind of beautiful.”
