Nothing great goes without a hiccup or two. 

Looking back now I am not embarrassed by what I did but maturity has taught me that there are always options to handling things differently. I stood up for something that I believed in at the time. I believe that is always a “Queens” role. 

Pageants are heavily unregulated, leaving it wide open for misunderstanding, overworked contestants and crew and sometimes poor treatment. In this case there was a breakdown in communications on all parts including mine. 

According to the reports, yes we were told we could go through dress rehearsal without makeup/hair etc. but as beauty Queens representing our countries and national directors, we shouldn’t have - as that is part of our job - to be physically presentable at all times and we should assume that cameras are around at all times.

Special “Thanks” to all of my sponsors and supports that sent me to MAPI. For more information about Daisi “Jo” Pollard, pageant competitions and  her work in promoting leisure, travel and tourism, contact -
