Guest blogger, Gabrielle Swavely is the 2018-2019 Centre County Dairy Princess

We all have childhood dreams. Some of these include becoming superheroes, star athletes or doctors. Sometimes, we dream of owning a big house, a pony or being the tallest person in our class. My childhood dream, along with becoming a vet and someday owning a giraffe, was to become a dairy princess.
