July 2018- Month in Review
What better month to start my new blogging series? Every month from now on I will do a month in review, a recap of my favorite appearances, charity work, achievements, travel, life events and more.
July has been a dream come true!
This July has been one to remember. I started the month as Miss MRI Canada, and ended it on a new journey, with an International Crown and sash, and a goal achieved. Here is my July 2018!
July 1st- CANADA DAY!!
I wore my Miss MRI Canada sash in Polson Park at my last event before Internationals. My whole community wished me good luck. Speaking on stage during a national celebration and before representing the country was amazing! Did I mention I helped cut the cake?!

July 6th Fashion Wear Preliminaries

The night ended with a sweet party!! Full of gifts, dancing, and fun!
At the party, I was also honored to model some of my last year’s Daycare classes art on a special cape!!
July 7th- Winning an International Title
Started the day with another 5am hair and makeup! The Miss age group had the first interviews of the day, so I did my interview this morning. Then we went on to evening gown preliminary competition.
After the Gown preliminary was the Gatsby Gala. Entering this pageant I had set a goal for my self to win the International Volunteer title. So when Michelle, the director, announced “say hello to our Miss International Volunteer” I sat holding my Moms hand at our table, hoping to hear my name. Then I did. Time slowed as I walked up and the sweetest thing is everyone was cheering for me. Everyone knew how much I wanted this title. it was a dream and goal come true.
I was also awarded top 5 Role Model for ages 13+ at the awards dinner!

Mom and I spent a day in Seattle traveling the city and taking pictures! We even rode on the Seattle Ferris wheel, which was pretty nerve-racking.
July 11th-First new coverage
