I’m so excited to be here! I have worked this past year preparing for this opportunity to continue my “Spreading the N.E.W.S.S.” about heart healthy habits for children and teens. Yesterday kicked off the pageant with Orientation and meeting all of my sister teen queens from around the world. It’s so exciting to make new friends and be able to learn what other girls are passionate about. This is an amazing group of young women and I am honored to be amongst them. I also want to thank the International Pageant staff as they have been so very welcoming and helpful. Here’s to a great week! Fingers crossed and prayers appreciated. Love you all and will keep you updated on my week here in Florida representing Indiana.
