Six-year-old Mya Prehn of Stettler is poised to become the youngest person to present a pitch on the Dragons’ Den CBC-TV show.
Mom Erin Prehn received the call last Thursday morning for her daughter to appear next month.
Erin said she wasn’t expecting a call from the producers last week, and so she was confused when she got a call from an Ontario number.
She called her husband Brian, and they waited until the evening to break the news to Mya.
“I wanted Brian to tell her, as it was their date, so he phoned her that evening and shared the amazing news,” Erin said.
“She was ecstatic.”
They have already been shopping for more supplies, and are working on creating a logo — something they didn’t get to do before the audition in Calgary this month.
Erin, Brian, Mya and Mya’s sister Hadley plan to make the trip to Toronto for the taping on March 27.
Mya will present her pitch alone, because that’s what she did in her audition and it worked out, her mother said.
“We are completely overwhelmed and excited for such a great opportunity for Mya, and all of us, really,” Erin said.
“We are grateful for the chance to show our children what can happen when you seize every moment, take chances and dream big — the world is full of amazing doors.”
