Here she comes…Miss. America……(you know you want to sing it). Okay…so Delanie isn’t Ms. America (yet) but after being crowned Miss Grand Forks she did claim the coveted title of MISS NORTH DAKOTA Saturday night and will be competing for MISS AMERICA in Atlantic City this fall. Delanie and her mom, Justine, are special friends and I had the privilege of taking some fun shots of the mom/daughter duo when they visited my daughter and I last year. When I heard the news I couldn’t help but imagine how flying high proud mom must be of her daughter. She certainly has every right to be! It’s been so neat to hear of Delanie’s hard work and preparation behind the scenes and know the girl behind the crown is as down to earth and genuine as they come.
Delanie’s platform of “Beyond the B-word” focuses on an anti bullying program that uses the arts to teach kids and adults alike the value of courage, empathy, compassion and kindness. You don’t have to know Delanie long to know she is a talented young lady and a wonderful role model for young and old alike. (and can that girl SING!) Check out more of Delanie’s blog.
Congratulations, Delanie! Sofie and I couldn’t be more proud of you. We can wait to watch you compete in Atlantic City!
