Titleholder Corner

Hello everyone! I am so honored and excited to be your Miss Cape May County 2018! To introduce myself, I am Michelle Wanner, a sophomore at Saint Joseph’s University and currently studying Actuarial Science.I have been dancing since I was 5 years old, both recreationally and competitively. My dance teacher was the first person to encourage me to compete forthe Miss America Organization. I have been participating in pageants since I was 15 years old and was lucky enough to have won two Outstanding Teen titles before I aged out.It has been a wonderful organization to be apart of and I have met so many inspiring people throughout this journey.

It has now been a little over a week since I was crowned and it brings me so much joy to reflect on this amazing experience. I competed alongside three other extraordinary young women who truly made the day memorable. The day was filled with Halloween music, makeup tutorials and some shoe fittings.We certainly worked well as a team to remember the choreography and thankfully we did not have any problems when it came to show time. There was a lot of laughter and a lot of advice provided to all of us by the directors and hostesses. I was very lucky to have won the American Patriot Award, the Community Service Award, the preliminary Talent and Interview Awards, and of course the title of Miss Cape May County.

I am excited to fulfill my duties as a titleholder this year, especiallyas a contestant in the Miss New Jersey pageant next summer. I have many ideas to expand my platform, Puppies with Professions, and see those through this year. I look forward to participating in the plethora of parades Cape May County has to offer, because my mom has a convertible in need of fresh air. Thankfully, I will not be alone in completing my goals as I have the Cape May County Board to provide me the guidance and opportunities needed to have a successful year.After a productive meeting with my director, I feel confident that this year will go by smoothly. Since the crown was first placed on my head, I have been on cloud 9. I hope to utilize all of thispositive energy and put it into action throughout my year of service.
