Why I should be Miss Kansas:
I am willing to put all of my time and effort into being the face of Kansas.  With this opportunity I would love to be involved in the community and state as much as I could. As Miss Kansas, it would be an honor and a privilege to inspire people to get involved and help those who are in need.  By emphasizing the importance of Congenital Heart Defect Awareness, I believe I can give the opportunity to families to take the proper steps towards helping their children and also reaching out to others who are willing to help these families in need.  If current procedures continue to allow hospitals to let babies leave after birth without being checked for this defect, there are going to be persistent deaths that could have been prevented.  As Miss Kansas, I would make it my goal to have a law passed requiring a doctor to run a test on the newborn before being discharged from the hospital to give each baby the chance to live.
