2004-2005 Hopkins Raspberry Festival Princess.
During my time as a princess, the aspect I loved the most was meeting so many different people from different communities. We all have the common goal of volunteerism, showcasing our community, and the pursuit of personal development. So it was easy to see why we became so close so quickly.
Still to this day, I have kept in touch with people who were queens, princesses and ambassadors during my year. I have helped my friends by volunteering with their local festivals, and asked for people to volunteer with for the Raspberry Festival. We have the same goals and motivation, to provide the same amazing experience we had!
And from a personal aspect; I have been invited to fellow royal alumni’s weddings, wedding/baby showers, new babies, new business launches, lunches and coffee chats. These friendships have helped me through college and my professional career, and because we have this bond from over a decade ago; I know it will last!
