I learned many lessons during my time in the Miss America Organization, and was lucky enough to share the ride with a few best friends. I have no idea how to sum up with words the wild journey I took as Miss Wayne County 2012, so I'll let my slideshow do the talking later. Just know that every step I took over the past year was a learning experience, and I would not change a thing because it made me the person I am today.
As I take my final steps across the stage tonight, I'm sad that the past two years I have spent in the Miss America Organization are coming to a close. Luckily I have already started the next chapter of my story, and I could not be happier. Not many people can say that they are living their dreams, and I am blessed to say that I am, one day at a time.
With all my love,
Miss Wayne County 2012
