Daffodil Princess crowned

After months of preparation, senior Maddie Lindahl was crowned Puyallup High School’s Daffodil Princess, Tuesday, Oct. 7.
“[Preparing for selection] was a long process and I had to practice a lot. I have never worked harder for something… We have practice every Saturday [in order to] prepare for our next events. We are going to be doing various [events] around the community and doing it all together is teamwork,” Lindahl said.
Now that she has achieved what she has worked for, Lindahl says she is most looking forward to being able to help out in the community alongside the rest of the Daffodil Court. She explains her newly- acquired duties in the community as Daffodil Princess.
“Right now we have to go to the selections and meet all the other princesses and we are going to do community service and work with kids and the elderly, make appearances, do the float and then we have Queen’s Court,” Lindahl said.
One of Lindahl’s goals in this role is being able to inspire young children to be themselves in the same way that she has found confidence in herself through being a part of the Daffodil Court. She hopes to do so through reading at various libraries around town and meeting with kids at organizations such as the YMCA and The Boys and Girls Club.
“[I have] gained more confidence in myself and [I hope to be] an inspiration to all the little kids. We will make appearances around the YMCA and at the Boys and Girls Club which is a big [organization that we visit] and we will read in the libraries. I want [these kids] to know that they should have confidence in themselves,” Lindahl said.
In the coming months, Lindahl and the rest of the princesses will be busy preparing for the queen’s coronation ceremony, Saturday, March 28, 2015.
