A Summerland woman will compete in the Miss B.C., Teen B.C. and Mrs. B.C. Pageant this weekend
Emily Henderson, a student at University of British Columbia, will represent the community at the pageant.
Henderson hopes to become a body image educator. She also is involved in acting and singing.
The Miss B.C., Teen B.C. and Mrs. B.C. Pageant is a developmental program for young women.
Contestants receive professional training in public speaking, interview skills, media relations, modelling, manners, etiquette, leadership, self-esteem, health, fitness, nutrition, assertiveness, motivational speaking and self defense.
“These skills will help all the contestants, whether or nor they are chosen as the new Miss, Miss Teen or Mrs. B.C.,” said Darren Storsley, creator and producer of the pageant.
The pageant will be held July 3 to 5 at the Chief Sepass Theatre in Fort Langley and will be televised on Shaw Television in fall.
