How was the experience of being Miss Indiana USA?
It was an amazing opportunity to be chosen to represent my home state at Miss USA. I dedicated my year towards implementing bullying awareness programs in schools and was honored to work with children of all ages. My year as Miss Indiana USA was very special because I had the opportunity to work with Hillary Clinton and President Obama during the presidential campaign. It was an incredible experience to be able to say I played a small role in our country’s history.

You are a contestant on The Face on Oxygen. How different was the environment of a reality show? Were there any challenges?
Being on a reality show is tough! Everyone seems to want to be on TV, but really consider your life being put under a microscope, in unrealistic situations, and then left in the hands of editors.
