Over this past year I have had the honor of reigning over Digby County as the 2016 Scallop Day Queen and as it comes to an end I find myself reflecting on the opportunities this experience has offered me. I would first like to start by thanking some of the people who made this possible. I would like to thank my child attendants, Jocelyn Crocker and Maddox Barnaby, Cheryl Forest, Susan Rice, and Brianna Walker for guiding me in the right direction over the past year, Digby Scallop Days committee, the Municipality of Digby for sponsoring me in the 85th Apple blossom Leadership competition, community members who have showed me nothing but support, and my family for helping me through this busy year. Having a crown on your head and being able to dress up in fancy clothes can be seen as the best part of this experience, but truly the best part is one’s development of leadership skills, the push to step out of your comfort zone, and the development of communication skills. Being a leader is something that is become more important now than ever. Behavioral theorists say Leaders are made not born; one becomes a leader through teaching, observation, and experience. That is exactly what this competition does. It teaches young adults to become strong, respectful, and passionate advocates for their area through observation and teaching of past leaders and respected community members while also providing an opportunity for practice and recognition for their hard work. Because of this, I feel very passionately about the continuation of this leadership competition in the Digby and I am excited to see future representatives for Digby county have the same experience as me as it was an honor for me to represent Digby as Scallop Day Queen 2016.

As my reign as Scallop Queen 2015 comes to an end and I reflect on the past year I realize how truly blessed I have been to be able to represent this beautiful town I call home. It has been a year filled with many new experiences, new friendships and wonderful memories. I have had the privilege to attend many community events as a representative of Digby as well as numerous parades from Clare to New Minas with each one being an opportunity for me to learn and grow in areas such as public speaking and self confidence. One of the highlights of my year was representing the Municipality of Digby at the 84th annual Apple Blossom Festival and I would like to say a big thank you to Linda Gregory and the municipality for giving me that opportunity. It was an amazing week and an experience that I will never forget. Of course I couldn’t have made it through this busy year without the help of so many wonderful people. To Cheryl Forrest, Susan Rice, Mayor Ben Cleveland and the Scallop Days committee, thank you for all of your help this past year as well as the many hours you put into making this festival so special every year. To my parents and sister, thank you for the drives, the support and the love. And finally to the people of Digby, thank you for all of the kind words and encouragement I have gotten from so many of you throughout the year, it has truly meant the world to me. It was an honor for me to represent Digby as Scallop Days Queen 2015.
