Q: How did competing for Miss America, Miss USA, Miss Outstanding America or Miss Teen USA help prepare you for where you are currently at?
A: Holding the title of Miss Arizona America gave me immeasurable skills that I use every day. I grew so much as a person. i.e. physical and mental growth, networking opportunities, philanthropic connections, and a lifelong sisterhood! The physical and mental preparation for Miss America (and throughout the year) gave me interview and speaking skills that I use today in my career at the U of A! I am able to speak to high level professionals with confidence and poise. I learned the importance of overall physical health. Scott helped me develop habits that I will maintain my entire life. His gym is such a positive and healthy environment. He customized workouts and a nutrition plan for my lifestyle and I still use them today two and a half years later. I must say, he also builds awesome butts, tee hee!
Q: If you could go back in time, what one thing (or more) would you do different when you competed?
A: I would have had bigger delts wink emoticon ! I also would have kept my hair more natural!
Q: What was the best part of your pageant experience?
A: The sparkles!! But really, the people I met. The individuals I connected with, from children at the hospital to all of the ladies I competed with (Arizona and America), helped create incredible memories that I will carry with me forever.
