Transcript of Caroline Holley - Miss Teen Ontario East 2010

That's me, Caroline Holley! Miss Teen Ontario East 2010 Through being Miss Teen Ontario East 2010, I play an important role as an ambassador for the Candlelighters Childhood Cancer Support Organization. I am proud to represent and work for such a wonderful charity to increase the awareness of pediatric cancer, support for patients and their families and help in raising funds for the research and treatment necessary to make a difference for the children and to better their quality of life. My volunteer experience has allowed me to become a well rounded, personable, giving individual. With the Candlelighters... The Miss Teen Ontario East Organization is known for their tireless work with charities, volunteering and giving young women the opportunity to grow in their confidence, and to become role models for other young people. "Often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around."
-Lou Buscaglia The Pageant Weekend Over the course of the pageant weekend the delegates take part in events throughout the community, dance practices, a talent showcase, interviews, hair and make-up consultations, fun games and so much more! What does Miss Teen Ontario East do? Miss Teen Ontario East = MTOE What I have learned since becoming Miss Teen Ontario East 2010 Through being a role model for young people in Ontario East I like to lead by example. Encouraging community volunteering and sharing of individual talents. I believe we all have the potential to make a difference in the world. You may not realize it but every choice you make and everything you do has a consequence. You don't have to end world hunger or conquer world peace to make a difference. A simple smile, a helping hand, and words of encouragement are the way in which I plan to make a difference in the world. I am only one person, so I can't expect to solve all of the world’s problems, but I can make a difference. When someone is feeling down, a simple hello and a smile can make everything suddenly seem alright. Making someone feel like they belong and have someone to talk to when they are feeling alone, caring for someone when they are sick and have no one to help them. These are small things that may seem like they are too small to change people or situations but they can really make a difference. I have always tried to live according to this code, but for the past few years I have been consciously making these small random acts of kindness a more common occurrence. Thinking about how easy it is to give a person in need a sense of joy or accomplishment gives me hope for the future.

Being an advocate for our focus charity; the Candlelighters, promoting and raising awareness for other charities and organizations, being present at local events and activities and striving to be a responsible, role model for young girls to look up to. The Candlelighters Mission is: "To enrich the lives of children and their families coping with childhood cancer. Promote awareness and understanding of the impact of childhood cancer on children and their families." Candlelighters Mission How I have grown.. Thus far, MTOE has given me the opportunity to continue with my volunteering, in the capacity that at the same time; through my title drawing attention, creating a lead for others to see and follow, and encouraging them to believe that every little bit counts, and every helping hand is of utmost importance towards achieving a common goal!

From bake sales to BBQs, carwashes to picnics, parades to galas, judging competitions to participating in walks, runs and relays, speeches to listening, inspiring to being inspired. MTOE has allowed me the opportunity to grow as a person as a whole and to truly cherish what it means to make a difference!
