And we begin with the lovely ladies from Miss New Hampshire!
Megan Lyman, Miss New Hampshire 2012 (center, in the fabulous white dress) has an amazing story… While still a pre-teen, Megan was diagnosed with muscular cancer and was introduced to the Make-A-Wish Foundation. Megan ‘wished’ to have a dance studio created in the attic of her home and when that wish was granted, Megan’s parents said they began to see a change in her as she looked forward to dancing each day.
Fast forward many years… Megan recovers from cancer, becomes Miss NH’s OT in 2008 and Miss NH 2012 – and her platform is of course, the Make-A-Wish Foundation. What a wonderful way to give back to an organization which gave her hope when she needed it most!
Now! Of the 27 girls competing for the title of Miss NH 2013 – Here’s our picks!
Kendall Wipff – Miss Mass OT in 2010, SF at Miss NH 2012
Julia Neveu – Miss NH OT in 2007, 3rd Runner up in 2012
Sara Mousseau – 2nd Runner up in 2012, Top 10 in 2010
Lauren April – Miss OT 2010, 3rd runner up to Miss NH in 2011, SF in 2012
Kelsy Ferdinando – Miss NH National Teenager 2010 and her talent is ‘speed painting’ 🙂
