Woman on My Way

The contest voting ended on midnight, Feb 1. I finished with a respectable 606 votes and was still in the running to become Wyndham’s Local Nation Contest winner (In my best Tyra Banks ANTM judging voice).

For the past two weeks, I have been sitting on pins and needles awaiting on the final results.  While the judges scoured the 116 entries for their top picks, I waited, waited and waited…

Well, its February 14th, D-Day (and V-Day btw)!  The judges have deliberated. The results are in and I’m excited to announce that I am a 2011 Wyndham Women Local Nation Contest WINNER!!!!

So what does that mean?  It’s mean they like me, they really like me! :-) AND I’m getting some really cool prizes.  Most importantly, this is a great opportunity to share the importance of getting out and seeing the world and hopefully influencing others (especially people of color) to do the same.
