Here is why:
Like many of you, I love National American Miss because there is nothing else like it in the world! To be a part of it, is like being a member of an elite sorority, filled with amazing young women and my bestest girlfriends. It is like summer-camp, a hannah montana concert, and miss america all rolled into one!!!!
But, personally for me - the BEST part about it is each and every single one of YOU! Each of you inspires me. You inpire me to be a great role-model. You inspire my belief in a better tomorrow - one filled with amazing leaders, which each of you will be. You inspire me to continue to be TODAY's girl. You inspire me to follow my dreams. You inspire me to want to make a difference. YOU INSPIRE ME!
It is easy to love doing something where you are surrounded by inspiration. So, thank you to all you FABULOUS, BEAUTIFUL GIRLS for inspiring ME!!!
And just think, if you are inspiring little old me...think of how many OTHER lives you are inspiring!??! Now THAT is what I call MAKING A DIFFERENCE!!!
