Two of my best friends in pageantry and in life were there, (L) Rita Case and (R) Erin Feltes. Both of these women have been such a positive influence in my life.
It was an honor to meet Miss Colorado USA 2010, Jessica Hartman. She was on the judges panel. I did not envy her! There were so many fabulous young ladies that night.
It was also an honor to meet Pageant Legend Gaspar Cruz! He is the Director for Miss Teen World. He is such a kind and generous man.
It was wonderful catching up with Micayla Keely, Miss Teen Colorado-World 2009. We made several appearances together. She always had a great attitude and so much energy!
Heidi Hume is such a gracious young woman. I have to tell a story on her. The night of the pageant, one of the contestant’s gowns tore and was not wearable. Heidi quickly offered one of her gowns and saved the evening. That young lady went on to win the title. Now can you see why I love and admire her?
Congratulations to Victoria Korthuis, Miss Teen Colorado-World!! I was so happy and excited for her. She was such a fabulous city title holder for two years before finally taking home the crown. She will represent Colorado well. I look forward to following her year.
The highlight of the evening for me was getting to see my client, Ashley Berry, crowned Jr. Miss Colorado-World. I am so proud of her. She has come a long way in the past year. Good luck this summer Ashley!!!
