Megha Sandhu is 2013 Miss Teen Canada - World
and takes over as the voice of this organization and writes the popular blog. It is heavily trafficked because the website sits at the center of a popular Miss Teen Canada Blog Network
that grows stronger and more popular each year as more content is added to the array of 106 different regional websites. This year there were only 64 participants on the blogs, but they were more skilled and prolific than ever before. Some of this year's best stories are about Megha Sandhu and more accounts of her performance are being added to the digital archives each passing day.
Megha is pretty remarkable girl. She's 18 and fearless, witty and smart. She's an Iranian Canadian family travel blogger 2012 Miss Teen Quebec
who grew up in downtown Montreal. During the official Talent Night presentation, she chose to perform a stand-up comedy routine and tell jokes that she wrote herself. Never before in the history of Miss Teen Canada - World Nationals / Talent Night has anyone ever done that. She was pretty funny too, and the judges were impressed.
On Saturday July 21st 2012, there were 800 people crammed into the Queen Elizabeth Theatre in Exhibition Place to watch Luke Bilyk of Degrassi with special performances by Canadian Multi-Platinum Artist Karl Wolf and in between song and dance routines catch glimpses of this lanky teen from Montreal all the way along the process until eventually she stood opposite Sasha Stewart 2012 Miss Teen Ontario.
At the end, they were both crying and Luke from Degrassi was making jokes at the podium, but then he revealed that Sasha was the runner up and in that instant Megha realized she had won! She was the next Miss Teen Canada - World.
For the first time in history of this great pageant, there was a free webcast live streaming on the main Miss Teen Canada World
website. This new technology lets family and friends from across Canada to share the excitement and follow along with new media, bloggers and trend hunters, model scouts and the speakers who donated face time to Miss Teen Canada Mentor Night
. The judges must quantify the 64 candidates' beauty, poise and leadership, and their online blog network participation scores. Much of the digital work score is measured in Miss Teen Canada Mentors Night activity at the hotel in Toronto - a live blogging exercise. This assignment is worth three percent of each beauty queen's pageant score.
With Mentor Night, this pageant added a huge web dimension in 2012 and this gave the blog network an even greater sense of purpose and more sponsors. Now in its fifth year, the web attraction is larger and more respected than ever before. On the ground, it's the biggest and best teen pageant in Canada. The girls face rigorous competition as they work the stage and social media; each girl hopes to become the nation's next beauty goodwill ambassador.
While in Toronto, 64 girls from all over Canada were tested for eight days straight, and the top 20 girls were preselected a short while in advance of the big show; the final vote goes to a panel of judges. These dignitaries include: Corey Ceccarelli, a big time modelling scout and career expert; Maureen Fen, and the owner of Bells and Bows Bridal Center
Angeline McDonald; Susan J. Talent Model & Talent Management founder, Susan J. Burych; Canadian Olympian, Okiki Akinremi; TV personality Stephanie Joanne; Woody Michleb, award-winning hair artist, Amy Michleb; Canadian Idol Singing School, Zack Werner
; modelling veteran, Marg Brown Toronto dentist, Dr. Natalie Archer, Canadian actress Kristen Fairlie
