1: Hello everyone, My name is Emily Caroline Wright and I am your 2011 South Carolina Cinderella Teen. I can't believe it has already been a year since being crowned and warmly welcomed into the Cinderella Family. There are several people I wish to recognize and thank for this incredible honor and opportunity. I would first like to thank my amazing, incredible God. He has opened doors, and blessed me with so many wonderful people in my life! Without Him, nothing would be possible. I would like to thank the unstoppable Cinderella Moms. Thank you for being my second mom through this journey, with a camera in one hand and e6000 in the other! Y’all have taught me that ANYTHING can be rhinestoned! A lot of special love and thanks to the incredible Mrs. Karen, our unbelievable state director! Thank you for believing in me from day one! To my incredible court, WOW! What can I say about this year? The moments we have shared together will be memories that I cherish forever. You are each beautiful and unique. I can’t count all the hilarious times we have had from dancing, games of twister, and TONS of picture taking. No one could have asked for better queens to share this experience with and you’re not just a court, you’re my true sisters, and you each will always be close to my heart. My amazing family; Y’all have helped me in every way possible. From goodie-bag making, to letting me practice my music for you while in the drive way at 10:00 at night, through it all you have given me amazing support. I would like to especially thank my mom, for being behind me 100% through this journey. Thank you for driving me, preparing me, and guiding me along every step of the way There are so many people I also wish to thank, but I know the beautiful teens here tonight are anxious to hear the results of their hard work. May I offer you this bit of advice: Cinderella is more than just a crown so do and wear your title proudly. Cherish each moment you have this year, and make the most of it. Cinderella will become your family, and I hope you come to love Cinderella as much as I do. Forever, I am your South Carolina Cinderella Teen 2011, Emily Caroline Wright.
2: South Carolina Cinderella State Pageant 2011 took place in Charleston, SC on April 16-17,2011. I left for that weekend with no clue what God had in mind for me. I hadn't had much pageant experience, so it came as a complete shock to me when they called my name...
3: I had a great time preparing for the pageant, including having pictures made for photogenic and practicing for interview!
4: With all of our royalty together, the next three months were spent preparing for the incredible journey to Las Vegas, for the International Cinderella Scholarship Pageant 2011.

12: "Just the way you are" by Bruno Mars, was the song for our opening number walk. I'll never forget how confident, and blessed I felt, having the opportunity to represent the state I'm from and love, and that they had that confidence in me. Being on that stage was truly a magical moment......

19: One thing I loved about Internationals, is that it included everyone! It always felt more like a party than a competition!
20: I responded with a "Well, a Queen needs a Princess, and I don't have a Princess. She started to frown and I asked her if She would be my princess.. I won't forget how excited she was! I then took my crown and placed it on her head, asked her to show me her Princess walk and wave. Who knew a 2 hour delay in the Atlanta Airport would ever be so much fun!? | This is Adeline! While waiting in the airport in Atlanta, a little girl kept walking past me. She would look at me, giggle, then hide behind her Grandma's leg. She finally walked over and asked "Are you a Queen, or a Princess?"
23: Cinderella has taught me a very valuable lesson. It's not about the crown, it's about what you do with it. And with sisters like these, Anything is possible.
