I thought I would tell you a little about myself. First off My name is Tiffany (my mom calls me sniffy, or sniff sniff or Tifferoni pepperoni…moms right lol) I just turned 13 back in April and I think I am the youngest contestant in the pageant this year.
I live in Northern Ontario Canada, with my mom and my sister Kirsi who is 15!!! Cool fact: Kirsi and myself both participated in Miss North Ontario this year as the only sisters!!!
I love the arts, like if there is word stronger than that tan change love to whatever it is and that’s what the arts mean to mean.
From the age of about 2 weeks, I have been on a stage somewhere or in front of a camera somewhere. Singing contests, dancing, modelling or live theatre. At the age of 5 I convinced our local theatre company to let me audition for Seausical the Musical and despite the age being 8 or older I won the role of Suzie lou who!!! I was hooked, I spent he next 6 years in every production Theatre Cambrian put on from Footloose, Annie, and Fame to adult performances of Miss Saigon.
During that time I discovered my love of dance. Since the age of 9 I have been a competitive dancer at “Let’s dance” in Chelmsford. I dance 4-5 nights a week for approx. 4-5 hours a night.
I hope to one day be a professional dancer, and perhaps have my own studio where I can foster other children’s love of dance!!
At the same time I continued to work on my singing. For years I had been on the stage singing with Cambrian Theatre, singing on stages and also competing in competitions across the province.
At the age of 11 I was asked to join a local all youth rock band. I was the youngest and the lead singer. Our band was called CDK and we ranged in age from 11-14, we wrote most of our own music and lyrics. Our band did many fundraisers, battle of bands and community festivals. In 2014 we won the Rock the Farm teen battle, winning $1000 and 8 hours recording time.
In addition to all of that, I have been modelling most of my life. I love the art of it and the artistic expression behind it. I have done many modelling and run way conceptions, Including print work, commercials and background movie work. In 2012 I won Faces of the North and received over $2000 worth of products and contracts.
I just love everything about the arts, music, and dance fill my soul. I believe they give me an outlet to express myself, increase my confidence, and it also allows for an avenue to meet new people and make new friends.
I am so looking forward to this competition and to meeting all of my fellow delegates from across the country!!
Opportunities like this need to be savoured and appreciated!!
