Another young beauty queen from our community!
19-year old Denisse Samaniego of Winnipeg was recently crowned Miss Teenage Manitoba 2016. Not bad for her first time joining such competition.
The crown was previously won by Chrystalle Omaga, and last year, Michaela Mendez won the Miss Teen Winnipeg title.
During her interview on CKJS Radio, Denisse shared her excitement in fulfilling her duties and meeting people along the way. “I’m just so happy I won, and I am very excited to start my official duties and meet people, and help in any way, in my capacity as Miss Teen Manitoba.”
The talented and charming young lady is a member of the Highlights Performing Group, a dancer and model. Denisse said that all these helped her gain confidence and to become a well-rounded person.
Asked if she sees herself vying for Miss Canada or Miss Universe in the future, Denisse said it’s possible, but her ultimate dream is to be an educator. “I would like to teach and inspire others like I have been inspired and helped by my teachers. I would like to be able to pay it forward, so to speak.”
