In case you’ve never seen a festival queen competition, take some time to picture in your mind the Miss USA or Miss America contest. Imagine the lights, the shiny floor, the glowing contestants, the thousands of viewers, maybe a famous band or singer, and some celebrity emcees. Got the picture? Now forget everything you just imagined except for the contestants, and add some outdoor grass-like carpet, some metal stairs (appropriate for getting heels stuck in), a single microphone, and some wicker fan chairs.
So my modeling work tapered off, as did my interest in continuing. Eventually, I stopped accepting calls from my agency and didn’t do any modeling work for quite a while. I was okay with this. I didn’t have to worry about the anxiety of performing anymore. I spent my time doing other things. I practiced volleyball, spent time with friends, listened to music, and talked on the phone. Modeling—and the dream that went with it—faded into the background. It wasn’t until my senior year in high school that the dream popped up again in the form of another modeling opportunity.
But somehow, through a weird chain of events, I ended up sitting atop a car as a festival queen. It’s obvious I’m no supermodel. Unless you count my dog, no one thinks I’m famous. No one has ever followed me around desperately trying to snap a picture of me as I dine at a ritzy restaurant or carry my grocery bags into my house. In fact, when compared side by side, the dreams of my youth and the realities of my life seem as different as Sanjaya Malakar and Carrie Underwood. But I’m guessing that if these two American Idol stars wanted to, they could pull off a pretty decent duet, in spite of their obvious differences in style and musical genre.
