“I want to become Miss Rodeo America because it would be a dream come true. As a child, I saved Royalty autographs. It wasn’t until much later the opportunity arose and I realized I had what it takes be a great representative of my state, rodeo, and agriculture. With a background in horsemanship, agriculture industry, independence, leadership, and most importantly, rodeo… I feel I would make a great representative of American Rodeo. I hope to light a spark for one girl to follow her dreams similar to what a previous Miss Rodeo Montana did for me. She opened my eyes to where I saw through hard work and study, I can travel my state and country enjoying the most memorable times of my life as a Rodeo Queen.”
