I first entered the Miss SCV Program when I was eight years old. Little me had no idea what I was getting myself into but I’m extremely glad I joined when I did. This program shaped me into the young woman I am today. It surrounded me with incredible women I was lucky enough to work with and get to know. The Miss SCV Program taught me how to act appropriately in certain environments while still being myself. It gave me the extreme confidence I never thought I could encounter that pushed me to join Hart Show Choir. Without this program I wouldn’t be on my third year of singing and dancing in front of people at choir competitions! Getting out on stage can be hard for certain people and it was so natural after going through an experience such as the Miss SCV Program. The community service I was fortunate to be involved in was so eye opening. It’s truly the little things in life that matter the most and stick with the people around you. Being a nice, genuine person and helping out in any way, shape or form in your community can change your perspective on things. I remember being a part of the Special Olympics Golf Tournament where I had the honor of awarding the winners with their medals, and seeing the smiles on every participants’ face made me so happy. It made me realize that every moment of kindness I engage in can affect someone else in a positive way. After eight years of being a part of the Miss SCV Program I can wholeheartedly say it has changed my life for the better and I highly recommend it to anyone who is looking to meet wonderful people, gain confidence, and to not be afraid of putting themselves out there for the benefit of the community.
