My husbands 20 year old cousin is participating in a small local fair beauty pageant tonight. The interview portion was yesterday. She let me know after her interview that she had chosen preeclampsia awareness as her platform. In her interview she mentioned paricipating in the Promise Walk. She also told the judges that educating women was very important. She told my daughter's and my story when asked why she chose that as a platform. She was there in the hours/days after DD was born, before we were stable, so she knows the seriousness and it really affected her.
I'm not much of a pageant person but I'm really proud of her and honored. I didn't even suggest this as her platform. Like I said, it's small and local but it means a lot!
So, the pageant is tonight. Please keep you fingers crossed for Courtney!
