This past week I had the pleasure of interviewing two very special guests, my parents! Kevin and Teresa Tabuchi both have an extensive background in assisting diverse people groups improve their mental health and emotional well-being. Not only does this video give you a short glimpse into my personal life, as well as my parents, but it also gives you a couple of applicational tools that you can apply to your daily routine to help enhance your mental, emotional, and physical state.

This past summer I had the privilege of partnering with Elevation Academy School to donate gift bags to children within the community of Prince Albert. The staff from the school and I personally hand-delivered the gift bags to their homes and took the time to connect with the kids and their families. These gift bags included fun games and activities they could do in the comfort and safety of their own home.

Donating and volunteering within a community setting is so important as it allows you to not only broaden your support network but also meet amazing people and develop new friendships. As human beings, we are hardwired to give to others. I truly believe that the more we give, the happier we feel. Giving not only improves your mental and emotional health, but it also helps provide a sense of purpose and fulfillment within one’s life.

Yours Truly,

Natasha Tabuchi

Did you know…

  1. Kindness is contagious and inspires others who witness the act to pay it forward!
  2. Kindness decreases stress! People who intentionally make an effort to be kind have 23% less cortisol (which is a stress hormone).
  3. Kindness is anti-aging because it releases oxytocin. This hormone helps in slowing down the aging process by reducing high levels of free radicals and inflammation in the cardiovascular system.
  4. Kindness decreases pain! Engaging in acts of kindness produces endorphins, which is the brain’s natural painkiller.
  5. Kindness assists in creating healthy relationships. It reduces the emotional barrier between two people and creates an environment for vulnerability and bonding.

Make the conscious effort today to express a genuine act of kindness and what the impact it’ll have on others around you ❤️

Be kind and compassionate toward one another ~Ephesians 4:32

Every scar you have, define who you truly are. You are a survivor.

Even though you have lost everything in life, since you are alive, it means there’s hope. You still have hope. Just keep believing and moving forward. Be strong because things will get better.

It may be stormy now but it never rains forever. Let go of your fear and chase after your dreams. Never give up in life and be brave.You may feel lost and alone. But God knows where you are and has a good plan for your future.

Hold on to your dreams, don’t let it go and don’t give up.You’re stronger than you seem, braver than you believe, and smarter than you think.Where there is light there is hope. Anything is possible When you believe in yourself.Live for what tomorrow has to offer and not for what yesterday took away. Be strong, be fearless, be beautiful. And believe that anything is possible.

 

See beyond your imagination.Don’t be afraid of falling. You will rise again.When you choose hope, anything is possible. Whatever you’re feeling, whatever you’re going through. Never give up in your dreams.Your past is just a story. And when you realise it. It has no power over you. Every moment is a fresh beginning. You are a survivor.

Life is full of surprises, that’s why you should live and enjoy your life, no matter what comes in your way. Your past doesn’t define you, I remember when I was is Uganda. I was told that I can not be Miss Uganda because I was an immigrant, But when I reach Canada I was told a different story. Here in Canada everyone has the same right no matter where you are from. Even though you are an immigrant, in Canada you can still have the same value and you can be what you want. Being an immigrant cannot stop you. It was at that moment,  I realise that I  am not what happened to me. I am what I choose to become. I have recently been crowned Miss Prince Albert World 2020. I will be representing Saskatchewan at Miss World Canada 2020 in Toronto, ON beauty pageant this November 1st. I am grateful for this great opportunity that is offered to me that I have the privilege to represent Prince Albert and our beautiful province of Saskatchewan at the National Miss World Canada Beauty Pageant 2020 in Toronto, ON. I am willing to encourage immigrants and youths to believe in themselves so that they can pursue and fulfil their goal and dream. I am having the privilege and honour of supporting various non-profit organisations.

May every immigrant who witnessed this moment Forever Believe in the power of her dream and to be selected as Miss Prince Albert World 2020 is both an honour and a responsibility. If I were to be Miss World Canada 2020, I will use my voice to encourage the youth and raise awareness of human injustice/ human right.

One of the most rewarding and amazing aspects of being a beauty pageant contestant is having the privilege and honor of supporting various non-profit organizations. This year, the Children’s Wish Foundation is the charity of choice that Miss World Canada delegates are fundraising for all across the nation. The Children’s Wish Foundation works with communities across Canada to provide children with life-threatening illnesses the opportunity to realize their most heartfelt wish. By creating unique, meaningful experiences, Children’s Wish enhances the quality of life for these courageous children and their families.

As part of my fundraising journey for the Children’s Wish Foundation, I have been collecting bottles from various businesses, organizations, and homes in Prince Albert. I want to offer a sincere thank you to those who have donated their bottles and given monetary donations to help bring joy to children in need and respite to their families!

Yours Truly,

What a wonderful pleasure it was to interview Nicole Rancourt this past week. Even amidst elections, she took the time out of her busy schedule to meet with me and share her heart for the city of Prince Albert. What I love about Nicole is her drive and tenacity to represent women in authority and leadership. She’s not afraid to take a stand, raise her voice, and address issues that need to be resolved.

Nicole is a registered social worker, who worked for the Prince Albert Parkland Health Region prior to getting involved in politics. Not only is she a current member of the legislative assembly in Saskatchewan for the NDP party, but she is also a prominent public figure who devotes much of her spare time to volunteering within her community!

Just a friendly reminder to make sure you vote, because your vote truly makes a difference within your communities! You can watch the full interview by clicking this link below.

Feeling gratitude and not expressing it, is like wrapping a gift and not giving it!

Today I give thanks for…

~A beautiful supportive family that is always there for me no matter what

~A church where I can freely express myself in worship & practice my faith

~Pastors who genuinely care about my well-being & mental health

~A God who covers me with his grace and mercy every morning

~Friends who are real, open, honest, and speak the truth in love

~The opportunity to represent my city & province of Saskatchewan at the upcoming Miss World Canada National Pageant

Today is just a beautiful reminder that we should be thankful every day! Make a conscious effort to not only be grateful but express it to someone you’re close to and watch the impact it will have. I find that when I intentionally purpose in my heart to be thankful, not only does the atmosphere around me change, but so does my mood, emotions, and perspective of life.

I will give thanks to you, Lord, with all my heart; I will tell of all your wonderful deeds. Psalm 9:1

Yours Truly,

Natasha Tabuchi

This past summer I had the wonderful privilege of partnering with Prince Albert Grand Council and The Saskatchewan Health Authority to volunteer and help feed the homeless within my city of Prince Albert. Not only did I have the opportunity to work alongside kindred spirited individuals who had a desire to help others, but I was also humbled by the gratitude and appreciation of those who were accessing the resources. I will be forever grateful for this experience as I was reminded of how truly fortunate I am, and how there are many who do not have the same advantages as myself and others. My eyes were opened to see how many were suffering and didn’t have access to nutritious food, adequate shelter, and proper clothing. Often times, I feel as though it’s easy to become stuck in an isolated routine and disregard the harsh reality of the homeless & underprivileged within our cities. For this reason, I believe it’s so important to practice self-reflection on a consistent basis, and rather than casting judgment or criticism on others and their circumstances, learn how to be part of the answer!

Yours Truly,

Natasha Tabuchi
