At 13 years old I received an invitation in the mail to participate in a National American Miss pageant and it is amazing to me that as I opened that first letter, God knew of all the plans that were to come and that this moment I would receive a NAM crown would happen. I stepped onto my first National American Miss Colorado stage as a shy young girl with hardly any talking skills and feeling like I couldn’t walk in my 2 inch heels. I saw the pictures of girls who won the crowns, who went to nationals, who always placed, who were outgoing, outspoken, confident, and leaders and I dreamed of becoming an inspiration like them. God heard my prayers and had this incredible plan to make me into that girl through this pageant journey of mine. Being a pageant girl is so much more than a crown, it’s the journey there, the friendships, growth, confidence, trust, smiles shared, community service, being a role model, dedication, goal setting, gaining your voice, being a light, and most importantly, having faith. I am so incredibly thankful to God that He made this the plan for my life! I can’t believe I can officially say I am your National American Miss Colorado 2018!! So ready for the next journey through this year and the amazing memories that are going to be made! ??
