This past weekend I attended the 2011 Miss and Teen Ventura Intl. pageants. It was a wonderful event put on by Crowning Glory Productions. Hilary Gushwa former Miss California Intl. 2009 hosted the pageant. The contestants glowed on stage in their sequin tops as they danced to music from "Fame". Followed by fun fashion, fitness, gown presentation and the on stage question. I was so proud of all the girls they did an amazing job. It was great to see my sister queen: Miss Teen California Intl. 2010 Dedria Burnett and my wonderful Director Eddie Peterson. In the audience that night to support the Ventura Pageant were Gayle Tape, Director of the Bakersfield pageant and her titleholders Mrs. Bakersfield 2011: Megan Raymond and Miss Teen Bakersfield 2011: Mackenzie Carter. We made the trip together and it was great to spend time together.
