“I wouldn’t trade this adventure for anything, because I am sure I would not be as confident as I am if I hadn’t begun this journey. I walked away with more than savings bonds, a trophy, crown and sash. I left with life-long friends and a future plan as a public speaker and I owe the Rain Day Organization a world of gratitude.” Joanna Allen – Miss Rain Day 2011
