Interesting Facts: 120 certified volunteer honors from various volunteer activities;  I have developed a blog (http://volunteer-now.blogspot.com/) which I intend to use as MOAT;  I have danced for 10 years including tap, ballet, jazz and pointe; I am the youngest in my family and the only girl with three older brothers

Marketing Plan: “Make a Difference:  Volunteer Now!” is a way of life for me.  I want to be a spokesperson inviting teens to experience the value of volunteering.  I will continue to help others discover a passion for volunteering as I want them to experience the difference made in their own life and that of others with my three-part plan:  1)Use of media to increase awareness of the benefits of volunteering; 2) Connect teens with volunteer opportunities; and 3)Work to bring national awareness for the Miss America’s Outstanding Teen Program through various volunteer opportunities.

Legacy: I would be honored to serve as Miss America’s Outstanding Teen 2011 and am ready to take on the responsibility.  I will connect with various national volunteer organizations and will encourage teens across the country to do the same in their community.   I will help teens learn the importance of managing time for school, work and extracurricular activities.  I will learn more about the Children’s Miracle Network, working as a regular volunteer for the organization to uplift the spirits of those served by CMN.

 Why should I be Miss America’s Outstanding Teen 2011?: I am a committed young woman – teachable, willing to learn, eager and dedicated for success – and that makes me a very good candidate for this job and opportunity.  I offer a variety of talents and gifts and would love to share these with teens across the country.  My plan of action to promote a platform of volunteerism could be put into action as Miss America’s Outstanding Teen in every state and territory during 2011.
