Hello, I’m Amber Nyblad the 2009 Michigan Apple Queen.
It has been nice to finally relax after the busy week of final exams and the apple queen pageant. Although it was a little stressful, I had a lot of fun. It was nice to get to know the other contestants during the afternoon. The chaperones were great with easing our nerves and guiding us through the day. We were given plenty of time to make our final preparations in our hotel rooms. This was fun for me because I had four apple queen veterans helping me, two of my aunts, my mom, and my sister. Their excitement really encouraged me. The interviews weren’t as bad as I thought, but the pageant was a little nerve-racking. It was worth it though when the pageant was finally over and I was able to visit with all my family and friends. Although I was entirely exhausted after making the trek to the Marriot with the heels and gown, the pizza party with the 2008 court was a good time.
