Miss Teen BC Shalom Reimer is looking for sponsors to attend the Miss Teen Canada pageant in Quebec this spring.

Miss Teen BC hits national stage

After winning the Miss Teen BC title this past summer, Fort Langley’s Shalom Reimer is ready to take the national stage

After winning the Miss Teen BC title this past summer, Fort Langley’s Shalom Reimer is ready to take the national stage — that is, if she can raise the money to do so.

The 17-year-old Pacific Academy student has been invited to the Miss Teen Canada competition in Quebec in March. And unlike previous generations of winners, such as her mother, who once bore the same Miss Teen BC title, Reimer must pay her own way.

Now, she is asking her community for help in raising $2,500 so she may take part in the week-long Miss Teen Canada program.

“That title will really benefit throughout my entire university years because it will give me opportunities to speak across Canada and really give me opportunities to help other students.”

So far, as a representative for B.C., Reimer has volunteered at many community events, including the cranberry festival and Variety Telethon.

“I think it’s really important to volunteer and help out your community locally,” she said.

“I have a passion for helping other students and ever since I was young I always volunteered at things or helped out my school a lot.”

Those who would like to support can also vote for Reimer online at: http://www.misscanadatm.ca/297.html.
