How has the world you come from shaped your dreams and aspirations?
I have a loving and supportive family that has nurtured me and developed my talents. Ever since I was a young girl, I have always been involved in various extracurricular activities, especially the performing arts. Through these activities, along with the wise and disciplined teachings of my parents, I have developed into the socially active and scholastically successful young woman that I am today. My firm Christian beliefs have also helped me to grow and mature. My strong family ties have instilled in me of the importance of sound values and morals, and to prioritize my life accordingly. I know that I am a woman destined for greatness and success, and will continue to strive for the absolute best throughout my life’s journey.
Why have you chosen to participate in the Miss Georgia Pageant?
I have always struggled with my self-esteem and body image. The Miss America Pageant will be beneficial in helping me improve my self-esteem. My participation in the pageant will bring attention to my platform of providing assistance to individuals affected by the incarceration of their relatives.
What social issue, other than your platform, will have the greatest impact on your generation and why?
The increasing sexuality within popular culture will have the greatest impact on my generation. The media often focuses on financial gains with little or no regard to the influence on young America. Sexually charged advertisements send a wrong message to young people by treating intimacy as something casual instead of something to be valued as sacred.
