The Miss Teen of America Scholarship Pageant completely changed the trajectory of my life. I was a girl from a small, rural town who never dreamed of competing in a pageant. I applied to the pageant on a whim, because my best friend thought it would be something fun for us to do, to meet other teen girls like us, over an otherwise dull summer. I never anticipated that I would win Miss Teen of New York, or go on to be chosen as Miss Teen of America, but that is exactly what happened. My final two years of high school leading into college were completely transformed. My entire world was expanded. Whereas I had not really travelled outside of my small town, I suddenly was traveling all over the United States and Australia. I served as the youth ambassador for an anti-smoking organization, giving speeches in front of the American Cancer Society, rallies, and state legislative breakfasts. I met with youth groups and spoke with them about leadership and character. Most importantly, I made the most amazing friends with the women of this organization that will last my entire lifetime. One such friend, another state titleholder, encouraged me to apply to Yale University, where she was a freshman at the time. Prior to my involvement with Miss Teen of America, I would have never had the confidence in myself or my abilities to have applied to a school like Yale. Eight years have passed since I received the title of Miss Teen of America, and I have since graduated from Yale with a degree in Ethics, Politics, and Economics, and am now halfway through my law degree at Notre Dame Law School. I would have never had taken the leap of faith to apply to Yale (nor have had the credentials on my application) were it not for the Miss Teen of America Scholarship Pageant. Miss Teen of America has given me so many amazing experiences, skills, and a family that the thought of what would have happened to my life had I not competed in the pageant scares me. I would encourage any young woman who wants to make the absolute most out of her life and her abilities to apply for the Miss Teen of America Pageant. It can absolutely change your life.
