Social Impact Initiative: “Confidence Under Construction,” stemmed from my body insecurity and lack of self-confidence. As I strive toward continued self- improvement, I want to help others construct their confidence and the belief that they are enough
. My platform does not focus on working with one organization, but rather with various organizations to encourage, support and serve as a confidante for others no matter their personal struggle.

Miss America empowered me to: be a better person everyday, to treat others with the utmost respect and to remember that everyone has a story. I am empowered to be more active in my community through my social impact platform which allows me endless opportunities to encourage and support anyone in building their confidence. I am empowered to trust that I myself am enough and to instill that knowledge in others. Miss America is so much more than a celebrity in a crown, she is an empowered woman making a difference wherever she goes.

Bio: My social impact/platform, “Confidence Under Construction,” stemmed from my own body insecurity and lack of self-confidence. As I strive towards continued self improvement, I want to help others construct their own confidence and trust that they are enough. My platform does not focus on working with any particular organization, but rather with various organizations to encourage others no matter what their personal struggle may be. I strive for the service platform that is the Miss America Title which will open up so many more doors and opportunities to reach others.
