PageantFile Content: Bio






Why did you begin competing in pageants? What do you hope to gain, other than a title? I began competing honestly because it was something I always had a desire to do. I guess you could say it has always been on my “bucket list”. It seemed like now was the time to do it.

Why is your platform unique? I hope to start my own non-profit called “Performing with a Purpose”. It incorporates theatre and the arts with service. With my experiences I have learned that service with a passion behind it is so much more meaningful.

What appearance or service event would you like to do most before the end of your reign?  I am really looking forward to a Ronald McDonald House event coming up! I am excited to get to meet the kids and spend time with them. I think that is such an important organization and I am excited to get to be a small part of it!

Favorite Phase: My favorite phase of competition is talent. My talent is vocal. I am a Musical Theatre major in college currently so performing and theatre is a huge passion of mine. I love performing so even that quick 90s seconds is my favorite part.

What advice do you have for a girl who thinks she can’t compete in pageants? I would ask why she believed that first. Then I would encourage her that all a pageant does is help to showcase you as a person. I believe the most successful people in these competitions are the ones that stay true to who they are. So I say any girl can compete as long as she stays true to who she is!

I believe I should be Miss America one because I know who I am, I know what I am passionate about, and I believe that I have the drive to pursue it. I understand and believe that everything happens for a reason and truly life is too short to not live life to the fullest.

Ending Remarks:

I think the experiences you have as a part of MAO are ones that you an carry with you throughout your lifetime. I believe that MAO can also open so many doors as you age out of the organization for future career choices. The kind of women that MAO fosters are ones that become the leaders in their fields of study or go on to excel in whatever they are passionate about.

I hope to gain a truly meaningful experience. I am learning so much already about how to better communicate with people, how to better present myself, and how to simply make some kind of difference.
