The Rose of Tralee hopeful is looking forward to enjoying this once in a lifetime experience and making lifelong friendships. The ambitious rose has already plans set for the future following the Rose competition. She will be back in Dublin to complete a masters program in business and entrepreneurship.
Finally, if Annemarie were to be crowned the Rose of Tralee she admits, "I think at this stage, making it to Tralee and experiencing the last week on the rose tour has been a victory in itself. I feel blessed and privileged to have been chosen to be a part of the festival as the New York representative. No words would ever do justice to how it would feel to be chosen to represent Ireland for the year. There is so much good you could do with such a respected title and I would love to be a part of that however, after getting to know all the girls I know the crown will be in safe hands no matter who wins."
The entire Irish community in New York has no doubt that our she will do us proud when she airs sixth on stage in Tuesday night’s Rose of Tralee competition. Good luck Annemarie.
