Thankful doesn’t fully capture the feeling I’m experiencing heading into #MNC week. It’s far beyond that. Being a Sweeps titleholder, my parents acted a my committee (with my amazing EDs @melinda.crews and Rhonda Waley just a call away)! Without them, the week ahead simply would not be possible. Countless hours of their time was spent making shoes for the Shoe Me Your Shoes parade, ordering bee paraphernalia, attending events, deciding between dresses, driving, making t-shirts, loading cars, paying for vocal lessons...you name it, we’ve done it all. Together. That’s what makes this year so special. I have a hive and “worker bees” that always put me and my endeavors first and BEElieved (should’ve seen that one coming😄) that I could do anything I put my mind to. Should I be chosen as #MissNC this year, it will be because of them. It will be FOR them. I’m so blessed to have such supportive, ride-or-die, truly groovy parents such as mine. They are practically superheroes to me.
Because they have been my committee, we have reached out to others for opinions, advice, mock interviews, donations to CMNH, cat sitting and more. You know who you are. I hope you know that next week, you will have been a vital part of the heart I put into competing for the job of my dreams...a once in a lifetime chance. I love you all and can’t thank you enough. You’re all the BEES KNEES!...sorry. I had to!🐝
Lastly, #HappyFathersDay to the the man, the myth, the legend (of a pageant pop) who’s always there when I need him. Love you, “Pitbull” (his nickname for himself 😂).
