Lets face it! We all make mistakes but what makes the difference is what we learn and take from each experience. Last November I got the courage to run for the title of Miss Club 200 2009-2010. I never thought in a million years I would win but in fact did. I get to host shows on Fridays as well as represent the gay community of Winnipeg at events across Canada till next November. One of the biggest faults I have encountered while working with other title holders is how ignorant some can be. A lot think they are better than others but one thing I can’t get over is most forget why they are there in the first place! Most forget that they’re there to represent the people. I never judge on how you look, how you dress, or even who you hang out with! I never once thought I was better than anyone mostly because I know how it feels when someone brings you down for something you can’t change.
So what makes a good role model? A role model is different for everyone but I know what a role model isn’t and that’s someone who, like some of the people I work with, think they are better than others. I’m still young and learning but one day I hope the younger generations can look up to me and say wow she’s doing a good job! This title may only last a year but my work for the Transgender Community will never stop!
