A Vernon girl’s accomplishments continue to grow with her latest title as Miss Teen Galaxy Canada.

Samantha Sewell earned the title after being crowned Miss Teenage Okanagan earlier this year and then the national title of Miss Teen Social Media.

“I was so happy it was like a dream that wouldn’t end,” said Sewell, a Grade 12 Vernon Secondary student. “It is such an honour to be selected to represent the whole country. My wonderful high school and community has been so supportive on this journey.”

Currently the 17-year-old is attending her final year of high school and is also attending Okanagan College at night school where she is earning her education assistant certificate.

Her latest title has guaranteed her the spot to represent Canada at the Miss Teen Galaxy International pageant next year in Orlando, Fla., where she will compete with girls from all over the world.

Sewell, who is very good at using social media to promote her sponsors and the pageant she is representing, is also a ferocious volunteer as she racked up over 50 events in a little over four months, most of which were for various charities in the Okanagan. This along with her anti-bullying platform has all helped to get her noticed by the top pageants in the world. Sewell is confident on stage and is comfortable speaking in front of large groups, standing at a slim 5’8” she is also starting to get noticed by modeling agencies.

Her future plans are to represent Canada and the Okanagan to the best of her abilities as Miss Teen Galaxy Canada, and to pursue her goal of becoming a Special Education teacher. Sewell is planning on attending events throughout Canada in the coming year and will be keeping the world up to date on all the Okanagan and Canada has to offer via her website missteencanadagalaxy.com

If you have an event for charity or if you would be interested in sponsoring Sewell, you can contact her via her website.
