More than anything, being adopted has made her understand unconditional love. The gorgeous Sara Disselkamp, who'll be competing for the crown of Miss Maine USA later this year, knew at a very young age that part of her purpose in her lifetime was to give back. And she would like to use her personal story to educate and to inspire other people. - "I was given the most precious gift and blessing when my parents, William and Jane Disselkamp adopted me when I was just a baby. Because of their unconditional love, I always knew I needed to do something bigger than myself, and give back in a way that no one else could understand" - she explained.
Sara's ideal beauty queen is her Mama - "She has the biggest heart in the world, and is the most selfless, loving woman I know" - she said.
Her mom has helped her to evolve as a beauty queen from day one of teaching her the importance of self love. Growing up, Sara was one of the only children of color in her school - "I always considered myself incredibly blessed, but like many others growing up, I encountered a few challenging situations regarding my outer appearance. I knew from a young age that everyone was beautiful, but my Mom taught me that what truly mattered was the beauty of a person’s heart. The values that she instilled in me have helped me evolve into the woman I am today. I love educating people who think beauty pageants are based on looks alone."
I had the opportunity to interview the beautiful Sara on her story and on her preparation for the upcoming Miss Maine USA Contest. Lets know a little more about this inspiring woman through this interview!
