I can not believe that it has been over one year since I was crowned the 2015 Miss Jr. teen New York United States. Over my year, I was given the opportunity to grow and I am tremendously grateful for that. I am so grateful to be where I am today. I volunteered at many charity events. I gave my time to the Susan G. Komen Race for the cure, Andrus Children’s Home, the diabetes foundation, and so much more. I even made strides in launching my organization,”It’s a small world”. I also made numerous appearances both domestically and internationally. I was able to represent the Miss United States Organization in Iceland, Denmark, Sweden, Italy, and the Bahamas.

I would not be here today without my dream team. Everyone who has supported me made all of this happen.
