My year as your National American Miss Pennsylvania has been nothing short of amazing. After capturing the Teen title in 2012, I was so honored to represent my state for the second time as your 2014 Miss Pennsylvania Queen. I had such a wonderful time at Nationals in Anaheim, California where I was reunited with my sister queens and friends I have made throughout my years with NAM (aka my NAMily)! I was so honored to have won several awards, including the National American Miss National Actress and Talent titles. Topping off the exciting week, I placed 2nd Runner-Up to the National American Miss title! I surely made memories that will last a lifetime. National American Miss has provided me with many wonderful opportunities.
During my year of service, I had the privilege of singing the National Anthem at several prestigious events, including my alma mater’s annual Veteran’s Day ceremony. I continued to promote the importance of giving back by participating in my alma mater’s hip-hop dance team’s fundraiser, "Who Do You Dance For?" dance-a-thon, in which proceeds went to charities like the Make-A-Wish Foundation. I also had the opportunity to speak with young girls in my community about “true beauty” and chasing their dreams. I am so thankful to my friends and family who have supported my journey with NAM. This organization holds such a special place and my heart and has taught me that with passion, persistence, and prayer, anything is possible. Because of the confidence NAM has instilled in me, I will never cease to dream big!
