The Miss America You Never Met…..Julie Hadden
December 20, 2007


A picture is worth 1000’s words…..Julies dream was to be Miss Jacksonville.She had incredible interview skills,outstanding talent….all that held her back was swimsuit….those days are long gone…..I worked with pageant contestants across the country,I have no doubt that the new “Julie” could have won it all.

So what now for her? She’s addressing congress this week…Im sure she will do the talk show circuit…..but one thing I believe is she still has the “Pageant Bug”.This was evident in her clothing for finale night,as well as the way she walked and spoke….

So Julie, if you read this,I want to encourage you to do the Mrs.America Pageant.Its not some cheesy pageant,several former Miss Florida’s have competed in the “Mrs” contests.The world is your stage and its time you heard those words that escaped you….
