If you would have asked me a year and a half ago before I entered my first local about what I thought of the women that competed in the Miss America Organization it would have been very different that what I say now. I used to think two things: 1. The women that compete for Miss America are perfect human beings from another planet and 2. These women will be nothing like me. Ask me now and I will say that the local, state and national representatives in the Miss America Organization are some of the most incredible people in this country.
When I first met my Miss America sisters at orientation in Washington D.C I was nervous. I quickly discovered that I had a lot in common, they were funny, amazing, REAL individuals and all from planet Earth! (Surprise, surprise!) My Miss America sisters are kindhearted, hilarious, service oriented, ambitious, intelligent women that I am proud to call each and every one of them my life long friends.
