As our first fall workshop is approaching, a lot preparation is being put in to place. It's incredibly exciting to think that it is already time to prepare for Miss Unstoppable. This weekend we will host a fall workshop, where we will meet our contestants, announce changes, and start teaching our girls what it truly means to be unstoppable. It's an exciting time for everyone; the parents are excited to learn what the production will be like, and what values their daughter will be taught, while the girls are excited to have the t-shirts colors announced and hear the opening number song for the first time. What makes me most excited? I think it's the principal of the entire event. For five months, I will work with a group of incredibly girls, teaching them what it means to be unstoppable. For five more months I will work diligently designing the perfect production, choreographing walking patters, finding sponsors, organizing volunteers, filing registration, and setting up for the big day. For the next five months I will look for every opportunity to spread awareness of the pageant, to make sure this is a day to remember.
The truth is, the next five months will fly by. All the work and preparation will combine to create one unforgettable day for every contestant, volunteer, and audience member involved.
So what happens after these next five months? That's the best part- it doesn't stop there. My platform, Be Unstoppable: Disability, not Definition is something that I continue to promote. Miss Unstoppable is an incredible extension and foundation of my platform, but there is so much more to my message. The lessons and values these girls will gain from the next five months will be carried with them for years to come. My platform and passion I have for individuals with disabilities will continue for the rest of my life.
Right now, I am choosing t-shirts colors and categories'. But I will forever be spreading my message, because these girls will always be unstoppable.
