Unify Against Bullying
I started in the "Princess Program" at age 8 as a princess for my cousin Jillian Zucco (Miss Massachusetts 2017). Through watching her compete and go to appearances in the community, I was able to see everything the Miss America Organization has to offer young women and watch her walk across a stage or volunteer at community events with confidence, grace, kindness, and passion for what she did. But most importantly, watching Jillian taught me that you must have courage, determination, and perseverance in order to achieve success. I knew then that I wanted to be like her one day. I was her princess until I was 12, and decided to compete myself in the teen program at age 13.
My last name comes from the Guillotine, which my ancestors created.
