I also had a chance to see yet another sister queen crowned – Mrs. Ohio America 2010 Kimberly Miller. She’s a ventriloquist and I found that my childhood fascination with this art remains today – what a talent. Congratulations Kimberly!!
The best part of June was the Kilwin's Fundraiser for NORD. My college roommate and Kilwin’s outlet owner Jacqueline Jackson was so generous to host the event. I was joined by Anji Meidel Mrs. Illinois America 2009. We had the best time together scooping ice cream on Father's Day and raising money and awareness for Rare Disease. It was hard work but very rewarding and I’d like to say Thank You to everyone that came out to support the cause and send a big hug to Jackie and Anji for taking the time to participate in such a gracious manner.
I also received some wonderful news this month. The young lady that I judged in the Miss University Nigeria Pageant won the associated National Pageant. Powede Lawrence was crowned Miss University Africa 2010. She was an obvious standout at the Nigerian Pageant and I had a feeling she’d bring it all home. What an accomplishment and I congratulate her. I am so very proud of her – I knew she could do it.

Attending the Miss USA 2010 Pageant in Vegas was as exciting an experience as you can imagine!! The State of Michigan reigned supreme once again when Dearborn’s Rima Fakih was crowned Miss USA 2010. The last time I visited a National Pageant at Planet Hollywood Hotel & Casino, Las Vegas I had the honor of witnessing Kirsten Haglund’s successful bid for Miss America 2008…what a night that was!! If these two women were not as wonderfully talented and beautiful as they are…I might start thinking that I’m a State Good Luck Charm. Wishful thinking on my part (LOL)!
