Danielle, Miss Intercontinental Scotland, looks back on her year and wishes you Merry Christmas!

What a fantastic 2013 I have had and it is all thanks to Holly and the team for making my dream possible! Back in June when I was crowned Miss Intercontinental Scotland, I could not believe my luck! I had followed and watched the Miss Intercontinental girls’ year previously and had wished to have that experience myself …and my wish became true! All my preparation had become worth it and I was about to embark on an exciting journey!

My year so far has involved me making several appearances, meeting wonderful people, raising money and awareness for my chosen charities Alzheimer Scotland and Scottish SPCA and of course preparing and travelling to the international finals in Germany!

The international finals were an experience like no other, and although I didn’t win the crown I believe that the preparation leading to the finals and during the finals allowed me to grow, mentally physically, emotionally and spiritually. I took away friendships with inspiring women from all over the world who I can say have truly had a massive impact on my life and I am so very thankful and blessed to have met them.

The lessons I have learned during my year so far and most particularly my international experience are ones that will stay with me forever, to not only believe in yourself but to follow your dreams. Therefore, take this opportunity to experience and become a part of something that you have always dreamed of, apply for Miss Intercontinental next year, and you never know you could be sitting where I am now!

Merry Christmas to you all, I wish you a fantastic New Year and I cannot wait to enjoy and share the next 6 months of my year with you all, so watch this space !

Much love,

Danielle
