My Mission, Miss Missouri
I love to compete. I always have, I always will, and there is no way around that. As my opportunities as a competitive dancer began to shrink after high school, I needed a new and exciting goal to work towards, and that’s when I found the Miss America Organization. I have started competing in preliminaries for the Miss Missouri Scholarship Pageant, and I’ve fallen in love with the atmosphere, mission, and healthy competition. Not only is my journey to Miss Missouri a way for me to set new and exciting goals for myself and earn scholarships towards my education, but it offers a unique platform where my voice can be heard and I can share my passion for healthy eating with anyone willing to listen.
On the road to Miss Missouri, I seek to serve other women and girls by inspiring and encouraging them to demonstrate their strength and intelligence to the world. I want to teach them to fuel their bodies in the right way so they are best equipped to excel in every area of their lives. As a candidate in these competitions, I strive to earn scholarships that will aid me in paying for my education to become a registered dietitian. It is with this education that I can be best prepared to educate others on ways to practice healthy eating for their individual needs. Lastly, I want to meet other women who have similar goals and interests. Nothing is more encouraging than taking on a challenge with good friends by your side to fuel your passion and motivate you to be the best you can be.
Even if your mission looks different from mine, I hope that my story inspires you to create and work toward goals of your own that will encourage you to live life to the fullest and show others how to do the same!
