I received a call from Jannette to update me and to share with everyone her experience through her first few days at the National Ms. Wheelchair 2010 America competition.
She said that so far it has been amazing, especially to meet such amazing, strong, inspiring women with various disabilities from all over the United States. She feels so bless and honored to be there representing the great state of Washington.
They took all the contestants on an outing to Mt. Rushmore, which was the first time for Jannette and said the view was spectacular!
Each year all the contestants with meet with the judges to do the interview process. Jannette is doing her interviews today (Wednesday and Thursday) both in the afternoon. She is feeling confident and said she feels as though she will go into the interviews with confidence and just be herself.
Jannette, who is a Deployment Specialist for Fort Lewis, WA, sets up services for troops before they have to go far from Americans shores. She said one of the woman volunteering at the pageant, found out what Jannette did for a job, and they made a great connection. The volunteers son is serving abroad.
Stay tuned for more updates from Jannette, from the National Ms. Wheelchair America 2010 Pageant, in Rapid City, SD.
