Miss America Organization

I proudly compete in the Miss America Organization. Currently, I am working on my way to winning a "sparkly ticket to Miss Ohio" through competing in local preliminaries for the Miss Ohio competition. During these local preliminaries, I compete in the phases of Presentation and Community Achievement in Interview, Lifestyle and Fitness in Swimsuit, Artistic Expression in Talent, and Presence and Poise in Evening Gown.

Through competing in pageants, my life has totally changed. My first pageant was the 2007 Olde Canal Days Queen's Pageant. At fifteen years old, I was quite shy, timid, and lacked self-confidence. I remember the exact moment that pageants changed my life. During the on-stage interview portion of my first pageant, I froze up during my answer after looking out into the crowd of my friends, family, classmates, and neighbors. One minute and thirty seconds of pure silence followed. I obviously did not win my first pageant; it took me three years to win my first title, 2009 Olde Canal Days Queen. Pageants have taught me how to have grace and poise under pressure, to work hard to perfect my talent, focus in order to maintain a healthy body, and dedication to my community through fundraising for the Children's Miracle Network and spreading awareness of my platform, Habitat For Humanity.

During the 2010-2011 preliminary season, I competed in Miss Greater Cleveland/Cuyahoga County, Miss North Coast, Miss Mansfield, and Miss Ohio Sweeps One and Two pageants.
