Good morning from Zionsville! Ayanna had a very long but amazing day on Tuesday.
The contestants attended the “Joy of Life” luncheon. The luncheon is in honor of a longtime supporter of the Miss Indiana Scholarship Program Joy Robbins. Joy passed away a few years ago after a long and courageous fight with breast cancer. Her husband, Jim, was in attendance which made the luncheon even more special. I have attached a picture from this event.
Dress rehearsal began at 4 pm and went until 11 pm. Yes we did take a 45 minute break! There are 64 total Miss and Outstanding Teen contestants. We saw lots of swimwear, evening gowns and some amazing talent! Ayanna felt very good about each part of competition rehearsal. The only glitch in the evening was that one of the stones fell out of her earring (she has glue for it) and she forgot a slip for her white dress! So that means a trip to Target for me this morning!!!
Ayanna has her private interview with the judges at 12:36 pm. Please send good and positive thoughts her way!
Tonight Ayanna answers the on-stage question. I will send another update after competition.
Check out the Miss Indiana website and Facebook pages for photos and other updates.
Thanks for your support of Ayanna!
