So how did I come to be a Tourism Girl?
"I decided to join tourism because when the worlds miss tourism pageants when I saw a friend, Kathi Hill, representing the Worlds as Worlds Ms. Mountain State Tourism and then came back as Worlds Ms. Mid Atlantic Tourism and now coming back for 2021 as Worlds Ms. Mid Atlantic State Tourism along with her daughter Jenna also coming back for her third year. She, Kathi, always appeared appreciative and proud to carry the title. I noticed how many doors opened for her and allowed her to bring awareness to her platform. Because of this, I knew the Tourism pageants was something I wanted to be apart of. I certainly had no idea that it would allow me to soar into a Worlds title within one year"!
"But something I learned is, the Worlds Miss Tourism Pageant absolutely reviews your application, they look into specific personality details. It’s not based on just beauty and size. It’s based on character & values, appearances and how you shared your title in the spotlight that accounted for your finals totals, of course along with your total scores on stage and in Interview. I believe if you want the title you need to show you are willing and have earned it"!
Rebekah's most cherished reason for being involved with Worlds Miss Tourism Pageants... The sense of family!! Rebekah said "Our bond is like a sisterhood even thru a pandemic, Everyone... Always lifting one another up".
