Can I just say how much I love the Miss Utah/America organization?! It is such an amazing program and changes the lives of all the girls who get involved with it.
Yesterday I had the opportunity to be one of the judges for the Miss Orem pageant. I just LOVE judging....almost as much as I loved competing in them. Yesterday I got to meet 17 highly talented, beautiful, service oriented and smart young ladies. It is such a joy to interview these girls and watch them perform their talents.
I also got to meet the current Miss Orem- Chelsey....what an amazing young lady she is. I learned that she has worked closely with Chris during her platform which is working with the Tifie organization that Chris works with. Talk about a small world! Another awesome connection that her sister is Ashley Di Lello from last seasons So You Think You Can Dance (who made it to the finals!) So Ashley and her husband Ryan (who was also a finalist.....and an amazing dancer!) performed a ballroom number at the pageant. I was star struck!!! It was such a great evening!Isn't she beautiful?! Clearly this girl made an impression on me if I went to the effort to track down a pic of her.
