I have had so much fun representing West Calgary so far and I’m so thankful for all of the wonderful people organizing these events for having me. Unfortunately, due to me being in Victoria for school until the end of April, I wasn’t able to make as many appearances as I would have liked, particularly when I was initially crowned. However, I am extremely happy with the amount of community involvement I was able to have over these past three months and I’m really pleased with how everything worked out! Thank you so much to everyone who helped me out with these appearances and especially to my mom and sister for helping take pictures. Here’s to many more appearances, even after the pageant is over! 🙂
