Dallas Heart Walk
I arrived in Dallas and was greeted by Kaylee Ewing, Miss International 2018 as soon as I stepped off the plane. We took an Uber to the American Heart Association National Center where we met up with Georgia Clark, Miss Teen International 2018. There, we were given a delicious Panera Bread lunch and some Go Red for Women goodies. We also had a great conversation with the Go Red for Women team and learned a lot of new information that will be beneficial throughout our year.
That evening Kaylee, Georgia and I decided to hit the town and try some of the famous Tex-Mex we had been hearing so much about. We wanted to try a place called Mi Cocina. We had a bit of a wait before we were seated, as it is a popular place for locals, but it was a great opportunity for us to chat and get to know each other a little better.
After we were seated, we had dinner and the the food did not disappoint!

After dinner we headed back to our hotel because we had an early morning.
I woke up at around 4:00 A.M to get ready and we headed straight to the Dallas Heart Walk. It was the largest Heart Walk I have ever attended. They had so many sponsors and booths set up, I knew it would be a great day.
Our job as volunteers was to greet all the participants as they arrived and hand out maps or answer any questions they may have. It was a great opportunity for us to socialize and we had so many great conversations. I even had a nice lady walk up to me because she had recognized me from Facebook. She said she will be a contestant in 2019 for International Pageants!
After the Heart Walk, Georgia had to head to the airport but Kaylee and I had a later flight. So we decided to sightsee for the remainder of our time there. We even stopped to have a latte at a little place called Café Victoria.
It was a wonderful weekend and I’m so thankful I got to be a part of it.
