As some of you will recall, I was a judge for Ms RDUS 2012 and it was a wonderful experience. The lovely Chantel Martinez took the crown and it was a terrific event. How time flies.
The opening reception occurred this past Sunday, and the 32 finalists will make this a difficult year to select just one. Even on a brutally hot day in an outdoor venue, Ganesha, on W.204th , all of the girls were professional and beautiful.
While I am not a judge this year, Yager Esthetics is a sponsor of the event, as I feel very strongly about supporting my Hispanic community. The dedication of time and preparation needed to even be considered for the pageant makes each girl special.
I encourage each of you to follow the competition and even come to the finals in Symphony Space this year. Maybe someone from your favorite city will win. It is sure to be a fun time.
