Occupation: Dance Teacher

Shania Kulczycki was born in Lloydminster Sk and lived in a small towns of Kitscoty AB and now on an acreage by Marwayne Ab. She graduated @ Kitscoty Jr/ Sr High School in 2014. She took 2 years off to teach dance and to try to find what she enjoyed the most. She is also Miss Marwayne for the 2nd year.

She is kind-hearted and caring. She is outgoing and not scared to try a new challenge that comes her way. She is always looking for ways to help out in her community and other local areas, by being on the local fire department and helping out other local events.

She is very hard working on any job and always gives 100%. She believes that all women have the same rights in the work place no matter what the position they fill. She also aims to help children even if she is not in the dance studio teaching. She is hoping to gain more self-confidence through this journey and to show that pageants are more than just beauty and glam. It’s about self-worth and never gives up on ones dreams.

Shania finds most of her time dancing and teaching but she also enjoys working at her parents customizing truck shop. In 2013 she started modelling and recently was a backup person for a country band called “The Dirt Rich Band” for their new music video. She also has a passion for horses and the farm life as she owns 2 Clydesdales and a Quarter horse. She loves travelling and is looking forward to more in the future of seeing what the world has to offer, whether it be dancing (teaching or dancing herself), working and showing horses, modelling or working on a farm or customizing trucks. She has many passions and is lucky enough to be able to fit them all in at the moment.
