"Motivation is everything. You can do the work of two people, but you can't be two people. Instead, you have to inspire the next guy down the line and get him to inspire his people."
The morning after I arrived home, I visited The Royal Court, a gown shop in Marlton, to get some ideas for my Miss New Jersey competition gown. I normally take a long time deliberating about any decision I make, but this time there was no question. I am happy to announce that I have officially purchased my evening gown!
That very same day, I secured something even more exciting--my little stars!! Two beautiful young ladies, Olivia and Brooke, agreed to be my stars for the Miss New Jersey pageant. They are so excited to be featured in the parade and during evening wear modeling, but I can't wait to get them involved in my year of service as Miss Eastern Shore! I envision plenty of tea parties and dress up days :)
Both of these lovely ladies dance at Tricia Sloan Dance Center (the same studio I attended & where I continue to train today)! They were some of my biggest fans when I was Dorothy in my high school production of
"The Wizard of Oz."
I know they'll continue to be my biggest fans on my quest to becoming Miss New Jersey!
Love you girls!!

My best friend of 15 years, Britt, and I went to Centre City school where the pageant was held, from Kindergarten to the fourth grade!
This little one and I had a great time coloring. She was too cute :)
Here the girls are laying out the crayons and after they covered the table, they took turns using the UV sanitation wand! They were a HUGE help :)
