Those who become titleholders in the Miss America system experience a "life boot camp" like no other. We work on our interview skills, public speaking, talent, fitness, and fashion, all while learning who we are as women. We also join a special sisterhood, each of us aspiring to fulfill the 4-points of Miss America's crown: Style, Service, Scholarship and Success.
But when our competition years are over and the rhinestone crown is tucked away, what then? Do we simply put everything behind us, or do we take all that we have learned and continue making a difference? Most of us would agree that this experience changes us, and we continue moving forward.
Through my involvement in this organization, I have discovered that Miss America is more than just one woman. It is about all the women who continue to do their work long after they have passed on their crowns. This is what ignites my love for Miss America, inspires my platform, and motivates me to revitalize interest in Miss America for future generations.
Miss America is a movement which empowers women to achieve their goals through education and community service. We are the largest provider of scholarship assistance to women in the world. I want to reach out with this message to as many women in this as possible and invite them to the sisterhood of Miss America.
