Just thought I would write a quick update about what has happened so far for those of you who are at home wondering!
On Wednesday I attended the Anime Expo in downtown Los Angeles at the Staples Center and Los Angeles Convention Center. It was an amazing event!! There were 4,000 people in attendance as I walked the red carpet and then spoke at the opening ceremonies!! I even got to meet members of very famous Japanese Rock Bands and took pictures with AKB48 (a Japanese band made up of young girls from Japan). Over the weekend, there will be 40,000 attendees at the Expo! It was an honor to be invited!
Today all the contestants went to the Fresno Civic Center to present gift to the Mayor of Fresno. The girls all looked wonderful, decked out in their red, white and blue attire! Each girl briefly introduced herself and presented a token of appreciation that somehow represented her. It was a hot day but the girls were troopers posing for pictures in the heat of the day!
Tomorrow interviews begin! More updates to come throughout the week!
Quote of the day:
“You'll seldom experience regret for anything that you've done. It is what you haven't done that will torment you. The message, therefore, is clear. Do it! Develop an appreciation for the present moment. Seize every second of your life and savor it. Value your present moments. Using them up in any self-defeating ways means you've lost them forever.”
- Wayne Dyer
