How did you hear concerning the princess events?
When I first graduated from highschool in 2018, one in every of my buddies, [who] was a yr older than me that I did theater with at BT, labored princess events. She knew that they have been hiring individuals so she contacted me and stated I might be nice for it. So, I began doing the events virtually 4 years in the past. At my final social gathering, I used to be Rapunzel, and my pal was Aurora. We went to the social gathering collectively and informed the story of our characters. We work together with the youngsters, play video games and sing princess songs. We additionally reply any questions they’ve about our characters. Recently, I wasn’t ready when a child requested me if I used to be on the coronation for Elsa within the film “Frozen.” I simply went with it and questioned what a film is. The children tried to clarify what a film was, and we have been all laughing.
