Recently, I have had tons of questions coming into my social media inboxes. I figured I should do a Q&A so if anyone has the same question, now you can have the answer, too. I absolutely love getting questions from followers so please reach out, and I will always do my best to answer!
1. Who are some artists you have been listening to lately?
Currently, I am in a country music phase, specifically Maren Morris. I saw her in concert a little over a week ago, and have been pretty obsessed since. If we are talking work out music, Post Malone, or The Weeknd.
2. What is the most memorable thing you have been to do as Miss Colorado USA?
Sherri Hill’s show at NYFW and visit the Miss Universe office. I had never been to New York prior to this trip, and I fell in love. Everything about the city was unbelievable. New York had a vibe and essence, unlike any place I had ever been. I can’t wait to go back.
3. What is your biggest source of strength/inspiration?
I have a fear of not trying, and that’s a big driving source on why I really go after things I want. I want to be able to look back at my life and know that I gave it all I had, and what was meant to be in God’s plan for me is what happened. I stay inspired by reading and listening to podcasts. I learn so much about self-development through both books and podcasts that I become inspired.
4. What keeps you going during your toughest moments?
Reminding myself to just be grateful for whatever it is that I’m going through. Struggles are never fun, but with a better perspective and grateful heart/mindset, I’ve learned it becomes much easier.
5. When did you get started in beauty pageants?
I did my first pageant after I graduated high school so I was 18. I have competed in 5 pageants total, all of which was Miss Colorado USA.
6. How do you stay positive when the world throws negativity and hardship your way?
I really focus on being grateful when negativity happens. I know I can’t control the outside world, but I can control my reaction, and how much I let whatever is going on affect me.
