The Road Begins Here...
I am so honored and excited to be YOUR Miss Greater Rochester 2011! The pageant was held Sunday March 13, 2011 at Robert Wesleyan College in Rochester, New York. Eleven beautiful and talented women competed for the chance to represent such a great city! Each contestant was extremely remarkable and I am so proud to be representing them and Greater Rochester for the 2011-2012 year! I am also, extremely excited to be joining the Miss New York Class of 2011!
As I turn 24 this year, sadly this is my LAST and final year in the Miss America Organization. :( I have been competing since I was 17 years old. This is a BIG YEAR for me. Wow,time flies! What I find interesting is that this amazing organization that I found at 17,I have not been able to let go! I thank my Artistic Director of the dance school I attended for getting me involved. As a child I was extremely shy, hard to believe now! But I can remember the fear that would rush through my body when meeting new people and the lack of confidence I had. My dance teacher felt through the art of dance this ultimately would cure my fear...Was she right? Absolutely!
Also,I am extremely excited to be working with Calista Amering and Katie Martin, as I prepare for the exciting year ahead! I had the opportunity to work with Calista last year as Miss Genesee Valley 2010 and roomie/sister queen Katie Martin, and they were wonderful.I would also, like to say thank you to all the volunteers and judges, without you we could not have made this happen! I think I can speak on behalf of all the contestants in giving special thanks to Robin and Val who assisted with our hair and make-up. These girls were fabulous at making sure we had that extra curl where needed. They made sure we looked perfect for stage. Robin, I can promise you those 2 year old false eye lashes that I insisted on continuously wearing... are now in the garbage :) haha.
As I make local appearances, promote my personal platform, and work in promoting Childrens Miracle Network I will be sure to keep you updated as Miss Greater Rochester 2011!
