Sixteen-year-old Brooke Sinclair, who lives with her family on a farm in rural Airdrie, was chosen as the 2014 Miss Teen Calgary on April 13 at the Palliser Hotel in Calgary.

Im extremely excited and grateful to have this opportunity, Sinclair said.

The Grade 11 student, has lived in rural Airdrie all her life, and wants to pursue a career in petroleum engineering.

Math is my favourite subject so thats something I want to get into, she said.

This was the first pageant for the St. Martin de Porres School student, who competed against 11 other girls from Calgary and area to take home the top honour.

It was a ton of fun, she said. A great experience and all the girls were lovely.

Sinclair heard about the pageant after receiving enrollment into a modeling course through Patti Falconer Agency from her mom for Christmas.

Its not just about modeling, Sinclair said of the course, Its poise, confidence, not slouching and standing with a straight back.

The agency is one of the sponsors for the Miss Teen Calgary pageant and suggested Sinclair enter.

The April 13, pageant included two interviews before the pageant with the judges who asked questions based on the application the participants filled out prior to the event.

Sinclair said the judges were great and made her feel comfortable as they chatted about her interest in sports, she is on the badminton and volleyball team at St. Martin, and about being on the honour role with a mark of distinction.

The pageant also included a fashion show with contestants modelling Purr clothing and was something Sinclair said she had never done before but enjoyed a lot and would do it again.

It was really fun, she said. It wasnt marked by the judges so it was kind of just for us girls to have fun with.

For the talent portion of the competition Sinclair preformed the song Cups from the movie Pitch Perfect.

I love to sing and I also play the drums so it was the perfect mix of rhythm and beat, she said.

She said she thoroughly enjoyed all aspects of the pageant but admitted to being a little nervous. However, she said everyone involved in the competition was very friendly and supportive.

Sinclair also received the Achievement Award at the event because of the amount of community support and sponsors she had rooting for her, including Ralphs Motor Sports where she works.

Though the teen doesnt yet know all the details of what the year as Miss Teen Calgary 2014 will bring, she said she is proud to be representing the title and will be a good role model to Calgary and area youth.

Her schedule is still to be determined but she will be making appearances at events in and around Calgary, including the Lilac Festival in Calgary in May.

Im very excited to make these appearances, meeting new people and getting to experience more volunteering, she said.

Its really going to help me in the future and provide me with more opportunities.
