Hi Everyone! I've been out of school just over a week, and already it has been a very busy beginning to summer. I finished up my Junior year at Wagner College earning a 4.0 for the semester and being inducted into Pi Delta Phi, the French National Honors Society. I have officially complete my french minor!
On Saturday, May 14, I helped out at Miss Connecticut's Day of Confidence at the beautiful Maneeley's of South Windsor. Guest speakers included Miss Maryland, Miss Vermont, Penny Pearlman, Dianne Daniels, and Miss Connecticut herself. It was a great event, with about 20 pre-teens in attendance. I am positive that each young lady left the event with a stronger feeling of self-confidence and empowerment; I was very proud to be part of such a great event.
Later that night, I had a mock interview at the Rocky Hill Community Center. With Miss CT just a month away, I'm glad to be getting some extra practice :]
on Friday, May 20, I had a voice lesson with my fabulous voice coach, Patty May. I was a little rusty from having bad allergies, but we had a great lesson. I can't wait for everyone to hear my song in June!
Later that day, I attended the Diamond Crowning Ceremony. I helped crown Haylee Patton, Tracy's adorable daughter. I had a great time getting to know the rest of the Miss CT Diamonds. They are an important part of our program, and certainly deserved their shining moment!
On Saturday, I volunteered at a Fisher House fundraiser held at the beautiful Rockwell Park in Bristol! I got to visit with Linda Lubrico, and spent time meeting many new people. I even got to meet our Lt. Governor, Nancy Wyman!
Today I woke up bright and early to attend the Fallen Heroes Golf Tournament at Great River in Milford. I was proud to volunteer for such a worthy cause. First, I helped with a clipping game, keeping score and marking down everyone who played. After a couple hours, I was honored to sing the National Anthem while our flag was presented by the color guard. Despite the rain and cold weather, everyone was in such a good mood to play golf and get to know one another. I look forward to hopefully helping out at this event again in years to come!
