My heart is so full of gratitude to have had this much support in an event I created merely through my interest in having a platform for celebrating young women.
I’m so thankful to have the genuine interest of sponsors to present us with such an outstanding event. Amongst the entire production process, the hardest part of this even t was coming up with the right words to express my appreciation to those that have supported this pageant and make me even prouder to call it my own. What made all this easy were the people. I believe the importance of wisely choosing who you want to partake in your venture is as important as the effort you put into it.
This was my first year striving to start a pageant and this is just the beginning for all of us. I’m so proud of my ladies! I hope everyone who attended had an amazing time as I was so honored to have all of you. I know it will be grander in the future years to come.
