What inspired you to enter the Model Search?
I’ve always been a dreamer! Everyone always laughed that someone from such a small town would dream of doing things that were seemingly impossible to achieve, given my geographical location, in addition to my age. Just goes to show you’re never too late to chase a dream. There are absolutely no limits, regardless of what others say.
How would you describe the experience?
It was interesting to say the least! It was awesome to see how my friends, “framily,” and family pulled together to help me achieve this goal!
How do you like to spend your spare time?
I have quite the creative nature although I don’t have much time for it!
I love amusement parks, thrills, any place with sun, sand, and salt. I also really enjoy concerts, traveling (including but not limited to history-rich places), reading, learning, inspiring, motivating and helping people smile, children’s laughter, ATV/UTV riding (after all, I am a small town country girl), . and the list goes on!
