“It is a sisterhood and a piece of history that can never be erased or replaced. The feeling is so surreal. So, just go for it and shine bright like the jewel you were meant to be!”
“Is it over already?! Wow!!! And just like that, the honor of reigning as one of Cleopatra’s Jewels of the Nile has come and gone! I feel like it was only yesterday that I was being crowned. I remember that very moment. I felt so proud! To be a Jewel of Cleopatra’s Nile meant more than just wearing a beautiful, sparkly crown. Now, do not get me wrong! I totally loved the perk of wearing a crown all of the time. Haha! But, there was and is so MUCH more meaning to this title.
I made many memories that I will forever cherish and NEVER forget with a small group of women that I became to respect and love dearly in such a short amount of time. I was given the opportunity to not only represent the Krewe of Cleopatra, but to represent a wonderful organization of women! I wish I could run for court every single year! Trust me, if I could I certainly would. My queen, fellow jewels, the krewe’s captain, her family, the krewe’s lieutenants and members made this year such a memorable one. I admire each and every one of you. The amount of hard work, love, and dedication that goes into making something like this happen is unbelievable! From the bottom of my heart, I thank you all for bestowing me the honor to represent you.
So, if you were to ask me what it is like to be a Jewel of Cleopatra’s Nile. I would have say that it was not only a ride, but also an experience of a lifetime. It is a sisterhood and a piece of history that can never be erased or replaced. The feeling is so surreal. So, just go for it and shine bright like the jewel you were meant to be!”
