What an awesome year for Miss Florida Jr. Pre-Teen!
Cinderella once said “If you keep on believing, the dream that you wish will come true!” After two years of practice and lots of believing, especially from my Daddy, my dream really did come true! I was so lucky to have all of my grandparents and my best friend and her family there to celebrate with me! As I began my year as your Miss Florida Jr Preteen, I was ready to serve and I had some pretty big goals in mind. My first stop was to donate all of the school supplies that were given by the fabulous contestants. I was able to fill more than 100 backpacks at a back to school drive in my hometown! Then it was off to Texas as visiting royalty! I had a blast with my new friend Micah and all of the amazing Texas state finalist! Together we tried ice skating for the first time, had amazing photo shoots and I even got my very first In and Out Burger! So good by the way! When I returned home I immediately got to work collecting stuffed animals for my organization “Kinsley’s Cuddles for Kids”. After an interview on WTXL news, I had donations coming in from as far always as New Jersey! Thanks to all of the support I received, I was able to surpass my goal and donate more than 500 stuffed animals to my local fire departments for them to give out to kids in scary situations! November came quickly and it was off to California where I couldn’t wait to spend a week with my Mom, Dad, little sister and of course my NAMily! But, not without a stop on Rodeo Drive first! My Mom was in Pretty Woman heaven! Parties, Disney Land and late night key lime pie snacks were the perfect way to spend the week with some of the most amazing girls from around the USA!
