Today we continue our series of interviews with the ten contestants for the Miss Yucca Valley Scholarship Pageant. The girls are all high school juniors and have interviewed a local woman. The Miss Yucca Valley pageant will be held Saturday, February 1, in the Joshua Springs Christian School’s Thunder Dome. Managing editor Tami Roleff introduces us to Maddy Nimmo…
Today we visit with Maddy Nimmo, a junior at Yucca Valley High School and candidate for Miss Yucca Valley. Hi Maddy. Tell us, who is the prominent woman you’ve been mentoring with and what you have learned….
“My prominent woman is Laura Jensen. She taught me that there is nothing you can’t overcome to get where you belong in life, and to reach your full potential. Her story really inspired me.”
What have you learned from your experience with Miss Yucca Valley?
“I think I actually learned a lot about myself and who I want to be due to this pageant process. We’ve read “The Seven Habits of Highly Effective Teens” as a group each week and its really been amazing to see how much we can apply to our lives and what a difference it has made in all of us already.”
Any final words?
“This pageant has benefited me in so many ways and I’m just so grateful that I got to meet all of these lovely girls. Thank you.”
