The rest of the week was extremely busy from touring the Jaguars stadium to late night rehearsals. At the end of the week it is worth it! You meet so many new friends from all over the world. We still have a group chat going and everyone talks almost every day. I could tell so many great stories about pageant week, but I am going to save some to share with everyone later!
Amanda and I knew each other through social media before pageant week. We had always just clicked! As soon as we met at the beginning of the week we became so close. She was like my big sister, in fact I remember turning around and seeing her face when they called my name as Miss Teen International. She was screaming, the pictures are actually pretty funny! When they called Amanda's name... My reaction was priceless. I was already crying and a mess, but once they called her name I started yelling so loud (you could probably hear it from the back of the theatre)! Amanda, I cannot wait to see what other crazy adventures we have this year!
