Greetings! New aspiring author looking for an agent

I am the author of a new children’s novel based in a magical fantasy world. I’ve even been brave enough to submit my opening for discussion at the pop-up.
Here’s hoping 2018 is the year my whole will light up when I see it in print.

“No matter how many mistakes you make or how slow you progress, you are still way ahead of everyone who isn’t trying.”

Hi Gully. Welcome. And I like that quote you added to your intro. I might just write that on a sticky note and put it on my fridge.
Welcome aboard, Gully! Good luck with the agent search... why not approach publishers directly? We all want a traditional publishing deal, but it's an unrealistic expectation at this point. But, hey, you may be the next 'big' thing, so feel free to ignore me!
