Embracing the Journey: Day 4 Recap at IUM 2023 feat. Abelgas Pageant Consulting

Today was another vibrant day at International United Miss 2023! There's so much I want to share with you, from the energetic rehearsals to those hilarious moments with my #sistersbysash.

Kicking off with a morning opening number dance rehearsal, I joined the awesome NUM Queens to groove our way through the opening number. Picture this: a group of empowered individuals, laughing as we go, making little mistakes, and cheering each other on. It felt like one big dance party with girlfriends. Once the official practice wrapped up, guess what? We whipped out our phones and made a few TikToks – because, why not? If there's ever a backstage reel you need to catch, it's this one!

Then came the golden chance to have a dress rehearsal and coaching session with the legendary Dr. Michaela Abelgas Olson. Can you believe it? She shared some super handy tips on how to boost my stage mojo.

Later, I got to be in the audience for a change, cheering on the littles as they dazzled in their evening gowns. Between that and laughing over the silliest jokes with my pageant sisters, it was a day well spent.

Now, here comes the fun part: tomorrow is the evening gown and personal introduction segments! Think of it as my mini TED talk. I get to chat with the judges, share my story, and let my personality shine. So fingers crossed and wish me luck!

Catch you in the next update! 🌟💃🏽👑
