Miss Marin: First Day of Practice



On Sunday, October 9th, I drove to the dance studio in Novato where I met the other Miss Marin County and Miss Marin Outstanding Teen contestants, as well a former winner and the current Miss Marin Outstanding Teen, Kenzie Morgenlaender. The pageant director, Michele Moser, had us all wear name tags, sit in a circle, and introduce ourselves. Everyone talked about their platform and why they chose it, and rather than feel intimidated, I felt like I was surrounded by a great group of girls.

We were told that we were to sign a contract, agreeing to weekly mandatory rehearsals, and a commitment to compete in the Miss California pageant if we won.

After the introductions, we practiced our opening dance number, and rehearsed our runway walks, including how and where to turn and smile. We were all clapping for each other, and I actually felt like a princess. Toward the end, we practiced the “current event” segment, which is when a former winner asks a question about an issue or event having an impact today. Everyone was a little nervous, but we were told that by the time of the pageant, we will be well prepared.

I am expected to practice my talent and runway walks, and to be on time for rehearsal. I am also expected to be courteous and respectful to the other contestants and volunteers helping with the pageant, and if I win, to represent Marin County with grace and style.

I already feel this was a fantastic decision and will be a memorable adventure (I just have to learn how to walk in heels without looking down!). On November 20th, I will walk down the stage in my bright pink swimsuit and embrace this opportunity to shine.
