Wow! What a year this has been. I tried my first pageant ever and was so excited that I actually was crowned Miss Washington!!! Having this title has opened a lot of doors for me and I feel so grateful to NAM for giving me this opportunity!
My shock didn’t stop in Washington though. At Nationals in California I was having the time of my life just being there but was further blessed beyond my wildest dreams to be crowned the National American Miss Princess. I still can’t believe this dream that I live in as your National Princess.
I have had an amazing year of service making 78 “Wish Packs” for the Make-A-Wish Foundation, participating in many walks to benefit babies, epilepsy, and starving children, to name a few. Picking out and buying Christmas presents, for a homeless shelter, was one of my favorite projects because of seeing the joy of the children when they opened their gifts. I even gave a 45 min. presentation on making a difference in the world at an elementary school assembly.
I had the BEST time with my amazing sister queens! Thank you for shining the way for me! To all state finalist, always keep a smile on your face and remember that every girl is a princess…you just have to believe it! To my successor, I wish you the best year ever and don’t forget to enjoy every second!
For the last time, I am your 2014-2015 Miss Washington Princess Hailey Stroh.
