Directly after my radio interview I headed for Southeast Kindergarten School in Warrensburg, MO. I had the opportunity to visit several classes to speak with them about goals and how I made it to be Miss Mid-Missouri. I also answered a wide range of questions from "how do you sleep with the crown on?" to "do you have a cow print bowling ball?". The students were adorable and I loved all of the hugs I received.
When my time was over at Southeast I headed for Sterling Elementary school. At Sterling I spoke to several 4th and 5th grade classes and also got a lot of questions from them! I especially enjoyed one of these classrooms because the educator used to be on one of my preparation boards for Miss Missouri. I loved getting to see her and catch up briefly.
When I left Sterling, I went to Martin Warren Elementary School. This appearance was very special to me because they have a few students with Celiac Disease (my platform)! I absolutely loved speaking with the student's classes to explain why some of their friends cannot eat birthday cake with them on their birthdays and can't have a school pizza party. The students enjoyed what I had to say and all wanted an autograph. I love these classes the most because it serves as more motivation for me to further education about my platform.
After speaking with the class I received a letter from the mother of one of the Celiac students, thanking me for educating the students and supporting her daughter. This is a constant reminder for me as to how important it is to spread awareness.
