My life started in a wonderful new direction when I was crowned Miss Virginia 2016. Since June 25th, everyday has been an exciting adventure. I just want to thank everyone that has supported me. It has all truly been such a humbling experience. My heart is full of gratitude and appreciation, and I’m overwhelmed by those that are reaching out to cheer me on. I’ve already made several appearances, contacts, and am presently in our nation’s capital at the Miss America orientation. Meeting all of these new girls has been a thrill, and I’ve already made many lifelong friends. I will post pictures and videos soon.
