Webster & Associates is sponsoring former client Andrea Kann as she competes for the title of Mrs. BC in the upcoming Miss BC 2012 charity pageant. Miss BC recognizes young ladies across the province for their personal accomplishments and community involvement. By taking part in the pageant Andrea seeks to raise awareness of brain injuries and fundraise for the Brain Injury Association of BC and Cops for Cancer.
“When I was 18 years old I was in a car accident. It was so serious that it changed my life forever. At the time I was preparing to leave for university, but instead spent the next week in a coma. When I awoke I was left with two permanent disabilities, the most imposing being a Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI).
Since then I have gone through a lot of ups and downs, but a lesson I have learned is that you can never stop improving yourself, and you should never give up on anything. This knowledge has made me into a role model for not only TBI survivors, but young women and men as well. The 2012 Miss BC charity pageant gives me the opportunity to get my story out and be a role model to a wide range of people. It also lets me raise awareness of brain injuries and be a voice for this invisible disability.
In my life I have learned the importance of NOW. That’s why I keep the quote “Dream as if you’ll live forever, live as if you’ll die today,” by James Dean in my mind everyday.”
Please join all of us at Webster & Associates in wishing Andrea the best of luck in the competition.
