I would like to thank all my sponsors for supporting me on my memorable journey of being a contestant in the Miss Sunnyside Pageant. It meant a lot to me.
Thanks to Sunnyside Physical Therapy, Sunnyside Community Hospital and Jeff Matson for being my sponsors and helping me through the process of the pageant.
To Brandy Bos…thanks so much for giving me confidence before the parade while you did my fabulous hair and beautiful make-up. Not only did you make me look beautiful, you made me feel beautiful from the inside out. You weren’t just a sponsor that did my hair and make-up, you were part of my support team that gave me the strength to carry on and be myself.
Thanks to Irene of Fashion Corner for helping me pick out my fabulous dresses and for the gorgeous necklace she donated to complete the look.
Thanks to Linda and Mike Farmer for letting me ride in their amazing Corvette for the parade and thanks, Linda, for driving and not letting me fall out (you two truly made me feel like a princess).
I would also like to give a special thanks to Karen and Jenny Hall, your support and encouragement gave me so much confidence. Just the little talks before and after the pageant really impacted me and made me a better person. You girls are really amazing people and I’m glad that I know you are always there to help me build confidence and bring the best out of people, to help them be themselves. You both are truly amazing.
I had a great experience during this big, once in a lifetime adventure and I’m glad I had the chance to spend it with great, amazing people. Thanks Marlee, Teri, Megan, and all the contestants, it couldn’t have been a better experience.
To all of the contestants, I couldn’t of made all the memories with a different bunch of girls, and remember, you are all winners in my eyes.
