What inspired you to walk on the course of beauty pageants?
I’ve always wanted to get into something like this, but it wasn’t until I watched Miss USA 2017 and saw Chhavi Verg on that stage. She’s so beautiful and captivating and she truly inspired me to go after my dreams. I remember thinking, “Why can’t that be me?” – And a few weeks later, I entered the competition.
Tell me something about yourself and your work. What do you actually do, and have done in the past?
I currently work in Global Campus Recruiting for one of Boston’s top consulting firms, Bain & Company. I’ve always loved working with people, especially students, so having this position excites me. I get my energy from meeting new students, providing them with comfort, answering questions, and being a reliable point of contact.
I am also a mentor to an amazing high-school sophomore, through Minds Matter Boston. For the next 3 years, I will coach, guide, and support her on her journey to college – something that means so much to me.

I bring a warm and relatable personality to any position I have. I believe a titleholder should be approachable and should be able to bring others comfort no matter their positon/age. Lucky for me, I have experience in working with Partners for a Big 4 firm, down to the interns, and everyone in-between.
I am versatile and know how to conduct myself no matter the situation. As much as I want to inspire young girls to take a leap of faith to chase their dreams, I also want to teach them how important it is to be able to articulate your thoughts, formulate an opinion, and carry a conversation with strangers. Those 3 things together will truly get you far in life, not just beauty.
