I would like to start by saying welcome and congratulations!!!
I hope you are just as excited as I was when I was getting ready to compete. I hope you put forth a lot of effort into preparing for a whole bunch of fun. I’m sure your just as nervous and excited at the same time as I was a year ago. If you are, DON’T be. Once you see how friendly and helpful others are you will shake that off and feel like you’ve been with NAM forever. I wasn’t sure of what to expect or do. But, what I learned from NAM was how to maintain confidence, no matter what. Confidence is key to your journey with National American Miss, and any journey you will take from here on out.
I was so honored and proud to represent my state as the reigning Miss New York Princess 2016-2017. I will never forget this experience and neither will you.

Life has been pretty busy since being crowned your National
American Miss New Jersey Princess. This year has been filled with
community service, awesome appearances, meeting new people and making new friends. Nationals was amazing. While I did not take home the crown, I came

friends that span that the country. I even traveled to Iowa to help one

by reading to local preschoolers and collecting book donations for a local
homeless shelter. I was fortunate enough to participate in the Jump Rope
for the Heart event with my school friends, and I loved volunteering with
Special Olympics as well as at the Ronald McDonald House with my Sister Queens.Community service was a…
On August 13th of 2016, I walked into the Hyatt
Regency Hotel in New Brunswick, NJ not knowing what was about to unfold. I was
nervous but I took the stage with as much confidence as I could. I didn’t know
that on August 14th, I would be crowned Miss New Jersey Pre-Teen;
definitely the best day ever... and the whirlwind ride began.
During my year I had the opportunity to use my title as a
platform for my volunteer work. I was blessed to be able to draw more attention
to the needs of the hungry through my charity Tattoos for Food and my work with the Our Lady of Sorrows’ food pantry.
I worked with homeless children through the Interfaith Hospitality Network; I
was the official starter for the National Cervical Cancer Coalition’s annual
charity race; I partnered with One Warm Coat and my local Ford dealership to
collect and distribute coats to the needy; and I was the keynote speaker for a
fundraiser to benefit the Neo-natal Intensive Care Unit of St. Barnabas Medical
