I mentioned in a previous post that I was busy preparing to compete in the Miss Hawaii USA pageant, so now I’m pretty excited to share a few photos of the moment that made all of the bottles of San Tropez spray tan, thousands of rhinestones, hundreds of Quest bars, two-a-day workouts, and moments of hangriness worthwhile. As with any dream, accomplishing it wasn’t easy, but it was so rewarding — and I’m just getting started! Next up for me will be appearances, community events, and other fun opportunities, followed by competing in the Miss USA pageant come next summer. (If you want to read about my health and fitness tips, click here.) But for now I’m off to stuff my face with cupcakes! Just kidding…kind of.
