made it even more impacting!!!

Saturday 6th October, 2012 was most definitely a good day! A big thank you to my friend Patricia for helping me prepare for Prejudging; Natalie for helping me prepare for Finals and calming my nerves with her wonderfully positive attitude and uplifting words. (Natalie, I am still blushing and so flattered by your “Statue” comment! You are too kind!) More thanks and hugs sent out to my beloved Mother, and friends for believing in me, and wanting only the best for me in my competitive career. And to all of the beautiful Competitors that I met on this day: Danny (Danielle), Victoria, Jalynn, Alix, Erika (and friend Erica - I hope I got that right:-), …THANK YOU for your kind words, compliments on my suit, and the huge HOORAH!!! that you all gave me when I came backstage with my trophies in hand. You all made this experience all the more touching, and memorable. THANK YOU! ~Sharon Gayle

Backstage Chilling ...Offers great photo ops!

The win was exhilarating, while the competitor camaraderie backstage in the tiny changing room, was heartwarming! Competitors pitched in to help each other, pointed out things that the other may have missed, and suggested remedies for the usual mishaps that happen throughout backstage preparation. Backstage changing rooms is where bonding takes place, and where new friendships are often forged!


Making the most of the time leading up to the Finals.
