|10 years ago....braces and all, I was a Finalist for Princess Kay of the Milky Way, |
an experience I will never forget!
The dairy princess program in Minnesota is still going strong, perhaps even stronger than ever, since so many young women are realizing the importance of sharing their stories with others. Passionate doesn't even begin to describe these young women. They are leaders, innovators, communicators, and most of all they LOVE the great community we call the dairy industry!
10 years ago I had no idea how important the dairy princess program would be in who I am today. Today, I am still advocating for dairy farmers like myself....using some of the same skills I had back then, with the same amount of passion, but with different tools...like this blog ;)
The final 12 will have the great experience of getting their likeness carved in a 90 pound block of butter at the Minnesota State Fair this summer! A real honor! (much like I did 10 years ago!) We're wishing all these young ladies well, as any one of them would be an excellent Princess Kay!
