  • To my mom, for everything that she did to get me prepared and ready for the pageant.
  • To my uncle John John, for helping me with my talent!

  • To my uncle Junebug who helped my mom finish paying for my feather cape.
  • To my aunt Candy for fixing my hair and for your words of encouragement.
  • To my sponsors Perry Shell, Bo Crowe and my aunt Wahnetah Stamper. Your help was truly appreciated.
  • To my cousins BC and Chantele, Noquish and Teela for walking in the parade and handing out all that candy. You guys are awesome!
