My busy summer has kicked off quite nicely. I’ve settled into a new apartment, started summer classes, and even got a new kitty! I decided I wanted to share a little more of what I have been up to for the last few weeks, so here it is!
I made a few school visits near the end of May. I have visited quite a few elementary schools as Miss Teen of America,
and it is always such a fun appearance to make! The children are always so sweet and respectful to me, and they always say the most hilarious things. I love answering all their questions about what I do as MTOA—even the ones that involve Spongebob or riding in carriages made out of pumpkins. I hope that there will be plenty more school visits on my to do list in the next few months!
If you’ve been keeping up with the 2016 state titleholders and me, you would know that we’ve been participating in a Snapchat and Instagram story TAKEOVER. Every day, there is a new titleholder on each social media platform, so please make sure you are following along by adding American Pageants on both Snapchat and Instagram (Snapchat: National_Mtoa, Instagram: americanpageantsinc). My Snapchat takeover consisted of LOTS of theatre talk, a tour of the beautiful University of Texas campus, where I attend school, and a nice hike up to Mt. Bonnell, the highest point in Travis County!
My summer travels kicked off with an amazing girls’ trip to Laguna Beach, CA! I traveled with my cousin, Svannah, to meet up with her friend, Michelle. We had six super duper busy days in beautiful California that included many, many beaches, too much shopping, and fourteen hours at Disneyland! It was such a memorable trip.
Stay tuned for more of my summer adventures coming soon, and check up on my Instagram (@missteenofamerica2017) for more day-to-day updates about my life as Miss Teen of America!
