Hello friends, I am Braelyn Bonnie, your 2021 Colorado Cinderella Miss. It has been a dream come true to represent Cinderella this year. The year has been full of pure magic from Pirates Cove, to Dallas for internationals, to the pumpkin patch, to the Northpole, to build a bear, to Great Wolf Lodge, to Disney on Ice, to many sleepovers and traveling to all of the preliminaries over Colorado. I have been apart of parades, appearances and community service projects. I have met so many girls this year and have built the best bond with my queen sisters. It truly has been a magical year, definitely one meant for a QUEEN.
Here is a little about me, I am 11 years old, and am in the 5th grade. I am on the cheer squad at my school and love it!! I have two brothers and live with my mom and dad. I have three dogs, one cat and two horses. I have been dancing since I was three and I am currently on a pre-professional dance team. I like to ride in rodeo events with my horses, especially barrell racing and one day hope to be a rodeo queen. I dream of being a famous barrell racer when I grow up. I love being in the outdoors, hiking, camping, four wheeling, fishing and sitting around the campfire. I enjoy traveling and especially love going to the beach! Baking is a passion of mine and I have my own business, Braelyn’s Bakes and Cakes. Someday I hope to be on the Kids Baking Championship show. You can always find a book in my hands, as I LOVE to read. I like to draw and play games. Hanging out with my family and making memories is always something I am up to!!!
My Cinderella journey began at a prelim in my hometown of Grand Junction when I was 4 years old in 2015. I won Tot Personality! From there I did many more prelims, winning various titles and competed in my first State in 2017 where I won Tot Personality and runner up to the overall title . The next year in 2018 I aged up to a Mini Miss and won Talent and runner up at state. In 2019, I was runner up once again but was literally surprised to hear my name called for State Ambassador. After many years of preserverance, praying and positive thoughts I won my first Division State Title as the Colorado Cinderella Miss at the age of 11. It was an amazing moment and one of the best days of my life filled with joy and happiness tears.
I love Cinderella, I have met so many new girls, and love all of my friendships I have made. I enjoy helping others and being involved in the community. Cinderella has given me so much more than a title. It has given me long lasting friendships, the confidence that was always there but needed a knudge in the right direction and the opportunity to be me at all times. It has pushed me to have the courage to do anything and to never give up. All things I will use for the rest of my life. Cinderella is the best!!!
Sending smiles and hugs always,
Braelyn Elizabeth Bonnie
