On October 12th 2013 my dreams came true when I was crowned Miss Wayne County 2013! For about the first week I had to keep checking my crown box to make sure it wasn't just a dream. The day after being crowned I had my first appearance at the Redford Fire Department's Open House. I had a blast with all the cute kids dressing up as fire fighters and I even got to use a fire hose!!!
The following weekend I was honored to be invited to the American Business Women's Association's 9th annual luncheon and auction. I met inspiring business women making strides to promote women in business. Since its inception in 1949 the ABWA has provided vocational skills and career development training for over 545,000 members in over 400 chapters. I had a great time and even got to meet Elvis!! Can you say starstruck?!
This past weekend I filled in for Haley Williams Miss Michigan, at a Dr. Pepper event in Sterling Heights. I handed out free samples of their new line of 10 calorie soft drinks and signed autographs. Later that night I attended the Miss Washtenaw County pageant. It was the first time I had watched a pageant from the audience, it was very different and felt a little weird not being on stage but I had a blast! All the contestants did a fabulous job! The wonderful Kt Maviglia was Crowned Miss Washtenaw County!
I am so excited to see what this year has in store for me, and I am incredibly honored to represent my community.
