For me I began competing because I love community service and enjoy having a stage to perform my talent on. In the talent portion I can cast myself and choose any song I’d like to sing. The pageant organization that I am involved with is the Miss America’s Outstanding Teen Organization.  The Miss America’s Outstanding Teen pageant promotes volunteerism and promotes young girls all over the country to transform into their best selves, which is what attracted me to the system in the first place. I love mentoring children and I am very excited about being part of the Princess Camp. My passion for the program started long a time ago when I was still making paper crowns. I enjoy meeting new people and have developed friendships with girls that have similar goals and interests that I have. The very minute I was crowned Miss Fort Wayne’s Outstanding Teen I knew I entered into a family and sisterhood of outstanding, community service driven, and kind girls.  I will be competing in the Miss Indiana’s Outstanding Teen pageant in Zionsville, June 11-17, 2017. Preliminary competition will be held Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday with Finals on Saturday, June 17. My platform is my G.A.B. Girls, which I founded when I was 9 years old.  I am so excited to begin my journey and to continue to emphasize my love for community, which is something that has always been close to my heart.
