Three Princeton Youth Ambassador candidates will be chosen this summer to represent the town.
Here is an introduction to the five candidates (in the order of the photo):
Taylor Gibb is a 17-year-old Princeton Secondary student and is proud to be the first candidate sponsored by Cooper’s Foods. She loves riding horses, singing, acting and making friends. Taylor is currently part of the cast working on a school play called Big Bad. She is really excited to be part of the Ambassador program and has had a lot of fun in the short time she has been part of it. After completing school, Taylor plans to move to Vancouver and follow her dream to be involved in movies.
Emily Allison is a 16-year-old student currently completing Grade 11 at Princeton Secondary School. She is very excited to be participating in the Ambassador Program and is proudly sponsored by the Princeton Rotary Club. She enjoys a variety of sports: softball, volleyball, skiing and competitive swimming. Emily loves reading, drama and volunteering in the community. Like many locals she takes advantage of Princeton’s beautiful location and spends her summers camping and hiking and winters on a skidoo. After graduation Emily plans to attend university and pursue a career as a registered nurse.
Megan Pateman is a 16-year-old student at Princeton Secondary. She was rushed to Kelowna for her birth but has lived in Princeton the rest of her life. She enjoys helping others, dancing, and being a part of the cheerleading squad. After high school she would like to travel to France before attending University to get her degree in criminal law. After completing her degree, she will take less fortunate children into her home to give them a promising future. Megan is excited to be part of this program and looks forward to everything she will gain.
Keisha Miller is a 16-year-old Grade 11 student at Princeton Secondary School who is proudly sponsored by the Princeton Lions Club. She was born in Alberta and moved to Princeton when she was nine years old. She is the youngest of four and enjoyed growing up in a large family. Keisha took eight years of dance before moving here and now enjoys camping, swimming, baseball, volleyball, playing video games, watching movies, and hanging out with friends. In her future Keisha plans to attend college or university to get her nursing degree.
Ciara Bamford is a 16-year-old proud Rebel Princeton Secondary student who was born in Princeton. She enjoys art, the great outdoors, volunteering in the Community, and has a huge passion for sports. After graduation she hopes to be playing post secondary basketball on a scholarship; it has been a goal of hers since grade eight and she is very driven. Her volunteering with children has inspired her to attend University to become a teacher or counselor. She is proud to be sponsored by the Royal Canadian Legion and wishes best of luck to all the candidates.
