Dear amazing contestants:
I have done so much since becoming Miss Georgia Junior Preteen Queen. I volunteered to play the harp at the DeKalb County festival, a back to school news expo and the Ronald McDonald House. It was so much fun meeting several public officials. I served food at Tour de Pink, a race that raises money for breast cancer. It was so much fun volunteering and spending time with elderly. I even let the elderly (including the men) try on my crown.
Being Miss Georgia has meant so much to me. I was proud to represent Georgia and I was so happy that Senator Isakson blogged that meeting me as Miss Georgia made his day. National American Miss has given me so much confidence and many opportunities. I hope it does the same for all of you.
I wish all of you the best of luck while you are competing. I hope you make many new friends, have a lot of fun and enjoy the experience. Always remember that you don’t need a crown on your head to be a queen.
Gabriela Norwood, Georgia Jr. Pre-Teen Queen
