Take a look at Miss Kansas Jr. Pre-Teen Cover Girl!

I have had a diversified year of service so far as your 2014 Miss Kansas Jr. Pre-Teen Cover Girl. I have volunteered at the Our Lady of Guadalupe school for underprivileged children and represented a strong role-model for these larger Hispanic inner city children. I have collected donations for Wayside waifs, a local no-kill animal shelter and also sponsored and organized a drive for battered women's shelter. This past year of service has been a memorable experience I will never forget!

Its been a wonderful year for Miss Colorado Princess!

Wow what a year! I’ve enjoyed so many moments being your 2014 Colorado Princess. Being a Princess is more than "just wearing the crown and banner", it’s about getting up doing things! I didn’t wait and started my service right away. I donated all the school supplies to four schools at Fort Carson, Colorado 
I was also fortunate to volunteer for several organizations, including National Mill Dog Rescue, show off my cooking skills at the Ronald McDonald House, raise food donations for the local food bank and ring the Salvation Army bell during the holidays. The list goes on with several other organizations including Race for the Cure 5K, honoring my Nana and other breast cancer survivors. 
While I carried a smile in my heart and wore one to match on my face, I participated in several parades with my sister queens, it was so much fun. Oh, and speaking of smiles I was even featured in the November 2014 issue of Denver’s Asian Magazine. 
God has blessed me beyond what my 8 year old mind can ever imagine. I met other girls I can call friends for life while visiting the Oklahoma, North Texas and Arizona pageants as a visiting Royalty Queen during the summer. The highlight of my year was when I went to Nationals, I met many more new friends, had lots of fun at Disneyland and placed 2nd for volunteer award. God has blessed me with friends for life and wonderful opportunities, giving me great confidence during my year of service as the 2014 Miss Colorado Princess, Emily Bourdon.

Featuring Miss Pennsylvania Pre-Teen!

A dream three years in the making came true when I was crowned the 2014 Miss Pennsylvania Pre-Teen. During my year of service, I have had the opportunity to give back to my community in so many ways. My year of service began with donating school supplies to the Norwin Rotary Backpack Program, which provides needy students with materials for the school year. I then visited Pittsburgh Children's Hospital, spending time with children in the playroom. Next was able to volunteer at the Mount Pleasant Glass and Ethnic Festival with Queens for a Cause, making over girls and boys into "sparkle princesses" and "army soldiers". 
Twice I served Ronald McDonald House Charities, working with my sister queens to clean the playroom at the Hershey facility and running in the Pittsburgh facility's 5k Color Run. In addition to those opportunities, I volunteered at The Reflections of Grace Foundation's Race for Grace, a charity near and dear to my community, which raises money for pediatric brain cancer patients' families and research. 
During my year of service I was able to make appearances at several community parades and special events. At NAM nationals, I proudly represented Pennsylvania making so many great friends. I have loved every moment of this experience and I'm so thankful for the opportunities with which I have been blessed. I will carry the confidence and poise I have gained as Miss Pennsylvania Pre-Teen with me into every new experience. Thank you, National American Miss, especially Sandy and Nicole and all of team Palmgren, for this amazing opportunity.
