The Day I Became a Princess
I'll never forget that moment frozen in time — the day I became a princess. Little girls dream about this their entire lives, and it was happening to me. I remember watching my television set as a little girl and seeing the crown placed upon the lucky contestant's head. It was magical to watch. Now, it was even more magical to experience.
I stood shaking with excitement trying to squat low enough for them to fasten the crown to my hair. Then suddenly it was on. I was crowned. I was a princess.
I remember the reporters and the flashbulbs. It almost seemed like a blur. I was officially a part of the Miss America program.
My local title meant that I would be traveling to compete in the Miss California pageant. There would be months of preparation ahead. Interview training, dress and swim suit fittings, voice lessons, and more! There was so much to do — like graduate early from high school so I could make it to the pageant on time.
I was only seventeen. I had stars in my eyes. I had dreams in my head. What would it be like to win & get to be Miss America. What opportunities or doors would be open to me along the way?
I had my eyes on the prize — a crown!
What better place for my “princess” blog post to be published. Thanks to Jeanna Young for letting share my lessons from being a princess. 🙂
