…and a bit of e-mail pleading on my part of course, the Miss BBW International (now called Miss Plus-Size International) committee is allowing me to partake in a Skype interview in 10 days! Thank you all for sending out your “good lucks” and “you can do its” as I was in the midst of my downward spiral of sadness last night.
While this doesn’t mean that I’ve been officially accepted into the pageant, it’s such a huge step. For most of my life, I’ve been disillusioned by the concept of beauty pageants, but as you all know, this one’s a bit different. To see such a large organization focus on presenting plus-size acceptance to the world is beyond touching. Even if I don’t make it into the final round, I’m enjoying my time on Cloud 9 right now. I’m sure you will all be hearing my updates as they arrive. So thanks for putting up with the excess venting 😀
