March 2011 was the month that changed Shantelle McLean's life. Entering the Miss Teen British Columbia Pageant was the first pageant she had ever entered and through dedication and hard work Shantelle earned herself the title of Miss Teen Northern British Columbia - World and has been chosen to represent herself and her area in the upcoming Miss Teen Canada-World Pageant in Toronto. Shantelle has since dedicated herself to her community and other local areas by becoming involved in various events such as appearances at Grand Openings, Northwest Music Festival, Little Town Big Celebration Fashion Show, Terrace Trade Show, Parades and Charity benefits.
Shantelle McLean was born and raised in Terrace BC. She attends Skeena Junior Secondary School. Shantelle has received numerous athletic and honour awards such as Most Sportsmanlike, Athlete of the Day two years in a row, recognition in curling and many Track and Field awards. She was also given the Service Award for all her volunteer work helping out with charities and other activities at school.
One of Shantelle’s proudest moments was when she was chosen to be an Olympic Torchbearer for the 2010 Winter Olympics. Shantelle has a very strong passion against bullying and animal abuse. She believes everyone deserves to be treated fairly and equally no matter whom they are. Shantelle’s goals for her future are to go to Medical School and become a Forensic Pathologist. In pursuing those goals Shantelle would love to travel to underprivileged countries to help build and volunteer in their medical clinics.
