Interesting Facts: I am a 3rd degree black belt and practice three different forms of martial arts: Shoalin Kempo Karate, World Class Tae Kwon Do, and ATA Tae Kwon Do; My favorite time to bake is when it’s raining; My dad is a Colonel in the US Army, and I have traveled across most of the United States and parts of Europe collecting snow globes, making my room a “Winter Wonderland”!
Marketing Plan: My platform “Stranger Danger: The Importance of Internet Safety” raises awareness of predatory threats on the internet, alerting internet users of all ages on prevention methods. Everyone should be allowed to grow in confidence without the threat of physical and cyber harassment. As the Miss America Outstanding Teen 2011, I will continue to present the positive aspects of the MAOT organization and promote my platform by speaking at corporate businesses, schools, church camps and volunteer groups.
Legacy: I will be remembered as the Miss America’s Outstanding Teen who inspired teenage girls to share their talents, and believe in themselves for whom God created them to be. The events I participate in throughout the year will encourage teenagers to use safe internet practices, protecting them from dangerous and unwanted predatory threats. True confidence comes from learning about personal talents, and sharing your gifts with others in your community. My motto “Learning, Sharing, Growing, and Giving” is focused on encouraging the youth of America.
Why I Should I be Miss America’s Outstanding Teen 2012: Being a military child, I have learned acceptance and confidence as I have conversed with citizens from various states in our nation. I will use poise, confidence and enthusiasm to spread my platform of “Stranger Danger: The Importance of Internet Safety” across America. Through public appearances I will continue my work with the Children’s Miracle Network, spreading the importance of volunteerism to better one’s self, and more importantly the lives of others. I will combine my passion of public speaking and being a positive role model to represent the Miss America Outstanding Teen organization to the youth across our nation. I will continue to build upon the foundation that has been laid by the previous Miss America’s Outstanding Teen Titleholders.
