FOR 17-year-old Lashica Pope, stepping up to be 2015 Eidsvold Junior Miss Showgirl is something she has dreamed of.
Coming from a family of seven girls and one boy, Lashica was born in Eidsvold and attended Eidsvold School, graduating last year.
Lashica said she loved going to the show each year and it was a highlight of the social calendar.
“I would like to be Miss Showgirl so I can showcase all the great
things about my home town,” Lashica said. “I want to show everyone what our community is like and what the people are like.”
Among her peers, she has been a good role model and an team player on multiple sporting fields.
“I think I will learn a lot by entering the Miss Showgirl. Win or not, it will be a good experience,” she said.
Lashica is about to embark on an Army career that could take her around the world.
