Day 4 - Miss Teen International Orientation

This is the first time that all of the teen contestants were together to meet one another before this incredible week begins. I had a great time mingling and taking pictures with some of the girls. Each and everyone of them are so beautiful. During the meeting we introduced ourselves, received information on the events for the rest of the week, and were given our contestant numbers. The highlight of the evening was when we had 3 guest speakers who are volunteers with Go Red. Two of the ladies had incredible personal experiences with heart failure and it touched my heart hearing their story. I am glad they shared it with us because knowledge is powerful....and I certainty learned a lot this evening. Thank you for sharing your stories! Tomorrow we head to the Navy Pier, we get to ride a speed boat, and finish the day by having lunch with the children at Boys & Girls Club.
