What was the first thing that went through your mind when you won the title of Miss North Carolina Earth United States?
When I won the title of Miss North Carolina Earth United States the first thing that went through my mind was “Wow! I actually did it!” I was overcome with such joy and excitement knowing I would represent the great people of North Carolina.
Would you like to represent your state in a pageant like Miss USA or Miss America?
I would love to one day represent my state in a pageant such as Miss USA or Miss America. I believe they are both amazing systems. However I am very happy and humble to represent North Carolina at the Miss Earth United States pageant.
You choose to compete in the Miss Earth Organization. Why this one?
I chose to compete in the Miss Earth Organization because it takes a completely different approach compared to other pageants. Our Beauties For A Cause motto is truly showcased in every delegate. I believe the organization has done an amazing job staying true to its vision. Each and every delegate strongly cares about her environment as well as her community. My decision to compete in the Miss Earth Organization has been one of the best ones I have made.
We are all unique so what would you say is something that makes you stand out from the other contestants?
Each and every queen is unique in her own way. I feel something that makes me stand out is perseverance and determination. I am always aiming to achieve my goals and will do anything and everything I need to do to achieve them. Sometimes when working on my goals I run into some obstacles but I keep my head up high and keep pushing through. I am truly a queen that will refuse to put my head down because I don’t want my crown to fall!
Who is your favorite beauty queen and why?
My favorite beauty queen is Pia Wurtzbach. The former Miss Universe embodied everything the MUO represents! I fell in love with her while watching the pageant. She was definitely confidently beautiful and I feel she handled the crowning mistake with such poise! I loved following her reign and seeing how she interacted with her fans. She is absolutely amazing!
What are your career goals?
I currently work as a sales consultant at Weatherby Healthcare. At my job I work closely with hospitals to find doctors so their patient are able to get the care they need. One of my career goals is to eventually become one of the top sales people. Not for the financial gain but to know I impacted more people and helped provide care to patients who desperately needed it.
