All American Girl Pageant
On February 27, 2010 I was invited to attend the All American Girl Pageant in Marysville, WA. It was such an honor to be a judge for this wonderful program. It was an experience that I will never forget. The talent within all the young girls was truly breath taking. All the girls were filled with so much positive energy! Like the Ms. Wheelchair Washington Program, the All American Girl Pageant does not focus on beauty. Instead, the program focuses on poise, personality and stage presence. Aside from the contestants, I had the chance to meet a large number of caring women who are dedicated to enriching the lives of, not only the participants of the pageant, but people everywhere. These are definitely friendships that will help me to continue on my mission to advocate for people with disabilities. Thank you to everyone who made it possible for me to get involved with the All American Girl Pageant!
