Marketing Plan:  The best way to make others want to participate in or support Miss America’s Outstanding Teen is to involve them. Potential Contestants, Community Leaders and Business Executives need to be invited to appearances and service events. Through experiencing the Miss America’s Outstanding Teen program firsthand, they will realize its strengths.

Legacy:  All too often I see other females struggling to live up to the world’s standard of a female.  Helping females realize the beauty, responsibility, and power that makes being female so special is important to me.  As Miss America’s Outstanding Teen, I want girls to look into the mirror each morning and know they are more than good enough.

Why I should be Miss America’s Outstanding Teen 2016: Miss America’s Outstanding Teen should use her crown to make a positive difference in the lives of others.  Creating my statewide Elf Tuck-In shows that I am dedicated to that goal, that I am a self-starter and committed to CMNH.  My platform of Mentoring, which I am dedicated to sharing and growing across our nation, makes a positive difference in the lives of all involved; reaches every age and walk of life; and is crucial to the success of our country’s teens and children.
