Dear Princess State Finalists:
Congratulations! This year has been amazing! NAM has offered me so many wonderful opportunities and I am so lucky to be a part of the NAM family. I have been able to volunteer with my sister making lunch for the families staying at the Ronald McDonald House, and help out at the local animal shelter. I appeared at events and participated in parades. I had so much fun at Nationals, I met so many new friends from all over the United States especially the Miss Cover girl Princess, Addy Bires, who will be my friend for life, and it was an honor to represent Michigan as your Miss Michigan Princess. I had a great time with my family touring Hollywood and Disneyland, the rides were awesome! I have memories to last a lifetime!
I would like to thank our State Directors, Steve and Kathleen Mayes and the entire NAM staff for making this a great experience and making my dream come true. To my sister queens, you are awesome, we made great memories together! Makiah, my big sister queen and best friend for life! I also want to thank my Sisters, Amber, Rachel and Rebekah for supporting me through this journey, I also want to give a special Thank you to my parents, Gregory and Bonnie for loving and believing in me.
To my successor, have fun, make friends and take pictures! Be confident, dream big, work hard, believe in yourself, and you will achieve!
Your 2016 Miss Michigan Princess
