Why I should be Miss Kansas:
Through a selfless act of a stranger, I personally saw the impact of a donated heart to my close friend. Donate Life America’s campaign currently is “20 Million Donors for 2012,” and I believe Kansas could make an impact on that goal. Receiving the job of Miss Kansas would give me a larger sphere of influence in which I could tell my friend’s miraculous story, promote my platform of Recycle Life: Organ Donation, and continue my service work in a broader capacity. In addition to my service work for CMNH and local organizations, I would welcome the opportunity to work with Numana, helping to provide food for undernourished communities. The job of Miss Kansas requires a woman with an affable but driven personality. I know that I possess unique qualities that will make a positive impact in the Miss Kansas Organization. I also believe I can make a vital difference in the lives of people with whom I come into contact with. And, given the opportunity, I can be the one to compel someone to place the little red heart on their driver’s license, or their name on the organ donor registry.
