Interview with Miss Nebraska USA Hoang-Kim Cung!

NAM:How did competing in National American Miss prepare you for Miss Nebraska USA, and now Miss USA?  Hoang-Kim:I believe pageants are a great place for young women to gain valuable life skills, including being an eloquent public speaker, expressing your opinions when chatting with others and learning how to carry yourself well. National American Miss definitely created a solid foundation for me when I decided I wanted to compete in the Miss USA system.
NAM:What advice would you give a girl contemplating participating in NAM for the first time?
Hoang-Kim: JUST DO IT! Fortune favors the bold and you never know what you could stand to gain from competing in NAM. Tenyears ago, my Mom encouraged me to compete because she wanted me to get out of my comfort zone and try something new. Little did my family know how much that decision would change my life and transform me into a bold, confident young woman with plenty of ambitions.

A few words from your 2014 Miss Pennsylvania Jr. Teen Rachel Bish

The moment after I was crowned, my life changed. I have had the opportunity to volunteer for the Multiple Sclerosis Bike-a-Thon in honor of my mother, volunteer for a 5K race and help receive a $60,000 grant for the Community Food Warehouse, donate books and toys to deserving children, smile and wave to crowds in several parades and speak to young children about the effects of bullying.  Without perseverance and determination, I would not have had so many opportunities in making a difference throughout my community and meeting so many wonderful people along my travels.

Check out Miss Washington Princess!

Wow! What a year this has been. I tried my first pageant ever and was so excited that I actually was crowned Miss Washington!!!Having this title has opened a lot of doors for me and I feel so grateful to NAM for giving me this opportunity!
My shock didn’t stop in Washington though.At Nationals in California I was having the time of my life just being there but was further blessed beyond my wildest dreams to be crowned the National American Miss Princess.I still can’t believe this dream that I live in as your National Princess.
I have had an amazing year of service making 78 “Wish Packs” for the Make-A-Wish Foundation, participating in many walks to benefit babies, epilepsy, and starving children, to name a few.Picking out and buying Christmas presents, for a homeless shelter, was one of my favorite projects because of seeing the joy of the children when they opened their gifts. I even gave a 45 min. presentation on making a difference in the world at an elementary school assembly.
