One of my favorite memories of competing in 1997 was visiting Disney World with the other contestants before the pageant! Thanks for bringing back that great tradition!
My favorite moment was one that never happened. The ABC camera crew and I went out in search of a kiosk to make one of those ear hats that said Miss DC… but the staff was so conscientious that they wouldn’t budge from the Disney Rules of only embroidering proper names.
