The Official Launch night had all of us girls both excited and nervous. Our speeches prepared, outfits ready and off we went to the Country Club, were we would give a five-minute speech on ‘What Wagga Means to Me?’ I knew that the Quest would put me out of my comfort zone and challenge me in different ways, and this was definitely the beginning.
The room was filled with multiple members of the community, family and friends. Entrants and I greeted our guests, and got to know so many new people. For dinner we had lovely meals and for each course we moved tables to ensure we got to socialise with various people. The entrants and myself enjoyed getting the chance to meet so many wonderful people. For me this night really helped me gain greater confidence within myself. It was proof that I could do anything that I set my mind to. Our sponsors walked us into the launch as we were being introduced to the guests. My sponsor is WDF Professionals and I was lucky enough to be escorted into the room by Vicky Richards. When we got our sashes and badge it all started to feel real, this journey had officially begun. When the launch was over, the entrants and I had meetings ahead of us to plan for the upcoming events.
Our upcoming event – Trivia Night - June 21st 2019 at 6.30pm
Announcing our first event, ‘A Night at the Movies’. The trivia night will be a fun night to raise money for our four deserving beneficiaries. Planning is underway and all entrants are enthusiastically preparing and working together to make sure the events are all organised. Working as a team has been so much fun and each entrant brings a different dynamic to the group. I feel so lucky to be a part of such a passionate, hard working group of young women. It will be a great journey with all of my fellow entrants as we all support one another in order to raise money and give back to the community.
I would like to thank the current Miss Wagga Stina Constantine and Community Princess Presslea Cowan for supporting the entrants and myself by taking the time to get to know us. You both do an amazing job.
I hope you all enjoyed looking into our Month of May and our journey so far in the Miss Wagga Wagga Quest.
