Farwell Message From Ms. Full-Figured D.M.V. Queen 2017 ReLita Clarke
First, I would like to say thank you to the Ms. Full Figured brand for the opportunity to represent the DMV in its first ever full-figured pageant. Next, I would like to thank my sisters & the MSFFDMV Royal Court for taking this journey with me over the last year and always supporting no matter what my ask was! Finally, I would like to thank all my supporters who help me get to the crown, all the new friends & colleagues I have gained through my reign and finally my family for believing in me and supporting walk as Queen. This experience has been one that I will cherish for a lifetime. I am extremely proud of the impact I was able to make on our young woman ages 10-25 through my platform “RarePearlz: The Transformation of a young woman into a Queen”. Being able to assist our young women in understanding their worth, setting their dreams up for success and helping each young woman create her own formula to accomplish those goals has been a vision of mine that I have now seen to fruition. It was my honor and privilege to pour into those young women as my mother and great- great grandmother have done for me. To my new Queens, remember that the crown is what YOU make of it. The tone has been set for you ladies to upkeep and propel our brand Ms. Full Figured DMV forward to new heights. I am excited to see whom will be the 2018 Ms. Exquisite, Ms. Plus and Ms. DMV. Please know that I am always here as your big sister and will be a shoulder to lean on, an ear to listen and a backbone to keep you from falling. To the one and only, Big sister Gorgeous One, Mrs. Lorrine Coleman-Ross. Words cannot express the love I have for you and the work you have put into making this brand known within the DMV area. Your passion for this pageant is unmatched and I am proud to be your first Queen. You are stuck me now and I’m sure neither of us will ever reverse that statement! (LOL) Thank you for being a great director, fabulous big sister and awesome friend to me. I look forward to seeing your next level for this brand and walking right beside you as you do! My heart cannot thank you enough! It is with tremendous gratitude and honor when I say it was my pleasure to serve as your 2017 Ms. FFDMV Queen!
