“Miss Rodeo America embodies everything I have strived to become in life. She is strong, independent, beautiful, talented, and driven young woman who promotes the sport and lifestyle I love so much. I am now confident I can be this woman. I want the title of Miss Rodeo America, but I want the job more. I am ready to work hard for the best year of my life while traveling constantly, waking up early and going to sleep late, meeting hundreds of people a day, living on the rodeo road, and doing everything asked with a smile. As Miss Rodeo America, I would have the opportunity to be a role model and empower every person I meet. I could share a little of where I come from while making memories that will last a lifetime. I also want to be the first Miss Rodeo America from Georgia.”
