Frisco’s Annual Mother/Daughter Tea Appearance
First of all I hope all mothers had a wonderful Mothers Day! I had such a blast celebrating Mothers Day weekend with my mom and grandmother. I was invited by the Frisco’s Women’s League to be a guest entertainer and speaker at their annual Mother/Daughter Tea event to benefit the non-profit organization Heroes for Children. Heroes for Children is an organization started by 2 mothers who both lost their daughters at a very young age to cancer.
These moms started this program to help families whose children are facing cancer, to ensure they are being supported and have someone there to help them through tough times whether it is financially or just a helping hand. I was much honored to be asked to be a part of such a wonderful event. I didn’t really know what to expect when I was asked to make an appearance, and I was so blown away from how great it really was. It was a huge event and I am so glad I got to attend it. I was able to sign tons of autographs for all of the little girls and their mothers and grandmothers as soon as they came into the ballroom. The way they smiled when they saw a “Real Princess” was remarkable. I was also able to perform my ventriloquism act for everyone and give a small speech about myself as well. Janet St. James from Channel 8 WFAA News was the emcee for the event, which was way cool; because it is my ambition to be a broadcast journalist. I had the opportunity to ask her a few questions and talk about my dream job with her. One of the high-lights of my day was a little girl named Zoe. Of course every young girl I talked to was precious, but there was something about Zoe that made my heart light up. She came up to me with the most excited smile on her face and the whole time I talked to her and was signing her autograph she looked at me straight in the eyes in such aw that I was in her words “A Real Princess.” Throughout the entire event she would every so often come and find me and give me a hug. I realized while looking at this precious blonde haired, blue eyed little girl, that I was a role model to her. I had only known her for a couple hours, yet she looked up to me and thought I was a real princess.
That’s what the Miss Plano/Frisco Organization and the Miss Texas Organization is all about, being a good role model, and positive influence on younger generations. I am so thankful for this experience as Teen Frisco and I will definitely remember this appearance as one of my very favorite.
