Why did you chose the Miss America system instead of Miss Usa ?
I chose the Miss America line because I love the service opportunities it provides women across the Nation. And it’s focus on the 4 points of the crown being: Service, style, scholarship and success.
Social media seem to play a major role in pageantry nowadays. Do you think this is advantageous to you? Why or why not?
I try to use social media in the most uplifting ways possible. I have created a hashtag #servesteem and a business Instagram account for my platform as well. This is a place where I encourage others to serve those around them and put their best foot forward everyday.
Did you face any moment of disappointment with yourself during the pageant journey, and how did you overcome it?
I placed 2nd attendant for the Miss. Utahs Outstanding Teen pageant 3 years in a row. Each time, although disappointing taught me that there is always room to grow and the only person I need to be better than is the person I was yesterday.
I understand that I have been given incredible opportunities and circumstances having served in different parts of the world and learning that true joy isn’t found in materialistic things. Where much is given much is required. I am committed to service and the changes I can make with the help of the Miss America organization.
Thanks to the beautiful Dexonna for the interview. Pageants News wishes you all the very best for Miss Utah pageant.
