Self Defence Training – conducted by Mitra Castano, of Triunity Martial Arts
Mitra has worked with the Miss BC Contestants for a number of years. It is a sad fact that women today need to be more aware of their environments and more prepared for the possibility of being the subject of violence. Because of this, Miss BC has made it a point to have a self-defence workshop for our contestants to receive basic overall skills on defence techniques for women.
Choreography training
The delegates will be trained to present a grand opening performance for the final showcase.
Self-esteem and Assertiveness workshop – conducted by Wilma Boyd
"Self-esteem is a way of thinking, feeling and acting, which implies that you accept, respect, trust and believe in yourself". Wilma's workshop will teach you how to become a confident young woman.
