Day 1: 14 September 2013This was my last competition before my 10th birthday, on the 26th of September. Tomorrow would have been my Uncle Wynand’s birthday, but he passed away 3 years ago. I miss him so much and that it why I wanted to enter this competition and I know he will be watching me.
Today is Smart Casual ramp as well as interviews in our National Costumes.My outfit for the Smart Casual division:
Choosing a country and national costume was easy …my choice was the United Kingdom. Wow, what an amazing experience I had when I visited my Uncle John and Aunt Natasja in London. All the interesting places I saw! I even got dressed up my ballgown at Hampton Court Palace and felt like a real princess…beautiful ballgown, sparkling tiara and a real palace, a dream come true! During our introduction we had to give reasons for our choice of outfit and the interview was based on our introductions. I love doing introductions and interviews.
This is me, being a princess in London:
Day 2: 15 September 2013
Happy Birthday Uncle Wynand! We started the morning with a birthday song for Uncle Wynand and also watched some home videos and photos, remembering all the good times. This one is for you Uncle Wynand, I know you will be here today.
Only had one ramp today, Evening Wear. My new dress is so pretty, thank you Auntie Gerda! I’ve learnt so much this year and now is my chance to show it and at the same time have fun doing it.
We spent the rest of the morning and early afternoon doing rehearsals for the gala show in the evening.
I was so excited and happy because I received the “Best Interview” and “Best Dressed” awards and I was announced as 2nd Princess, Miss Petite Queen of the World. Wow!!! Uncle Wynand would’ve been proud of me.
