The Traveling Sash
After I competed in Elite Miss Earth USA in 2019, I thought I was done competing UNTIL I decided to enter a benefit pageant for heart patients in southeast Texas in May 2021. Along with TCM girl, Rylee Fonte, we both captured titles for this worthy cause. But on that same day of May 15, I also captured another title - my FIRST MRS title! I entered a virtual pageant since, so much of the world has gone virtual, to see how the process works and how it might apply to future competitions. American Coronet Pageants is the oldest virtual pageant in American and delegates compete in three essays, services hours, academics, photogenic, talent, and more! I was delighted to have been named 2022 Mrs. American Coronet along with several other awards and decided to take both titles on the road for the summer! Since June 1, I have traveled to seven states and over 4,000 miles with my titles. Since I was already on the road for pageant coaching, it was slightly easier to also represent these titles at other pageants and events. From OK & TX NAM, High School America, America's Majestic Miss, USA National Miss, Royal International Miss, Princess of America, National Elite, and even the American Heart of Beauty fundraiser ball!
Through the summer I had been trying to do little service projects like donating to Goodwill, donating school supplies, doing my part to help Save the World by recycling, and spreading kindness. On August 19, I even took the day to be a good humanitarian to celebrate World Humanitarian Day. Since this year's theme focused on the climate crisis, I took some time to clean a local park and left kind notes on my neighbor's doors.
Needless to say, it hasn't been a dull summer! Adventures are everywhere! Now we are ready for a great fall and winter season when we return after Labor Day! We are excited about the new ventures and new pageant systems to try! Farewell summer season!
