|If you haven’t read about Nicole Fox previously on the Temple of Poi website, allow me to introduce this lovely goddess.
Unfortunately, 2007 was not the year for Nicole to make it to the Miss America Pageant. 2008 was a whole other matter however.
|Nicole decided to give it one more chance while she was still eligible and her efforts paid off in a big way. She was crowned Miss Hawaii in 2008 which had her find her way to the Miss America Pageant. Not only was she in the Miss America Pageant, she placed in the top 10! What an honor!
In 2008, Nicole opted for a more traditional form of dance than poi fire dancing. Having achieved consistent success in her previous presentations, she opted for Tahitian dance for the talent competition.
Thanks for the inspiration Nicole! Your persistence and success paid off and is a wonderful example.
