My friends from school and I got to build a Civil War style fence that will be used for re-enactments on the battlefield (+ we got to spend the day with one of the coolest history teachers EVER)
It was such an honor to be a presenter at the summit! We shared what we do as a club at Saucon, and now many students can bring that to their schools!
Women in Science and Engineering Forum was such a great learning experience all thanks to the Da Vinci Science Center. Forever grateful for the friends I made!
FTK! Night under the lights with some of my favorite people ever! Raising funds for childhood cancer through my school's MiniTHON Club!
My gals and I are the best welcoming faces to any party ;), but we were so excited to collaborate our ideas to put on such a special evening for all the kids!
It was really neat to assist the numerous artists with setting up their booths and see all their work! This amazing artist drove all the way from FLORIDA! Her pieces were so abstract!
I learned so much about the contemporary world issues going on in the world at the moment. I successfully represented the country of Norway and passed my resolution to send aid to the women and children in Yemen who were affected by the war. Next stop, the actual United Nations (wouldn't that be the coolest ever?)
Global Scholars Club at my school had this volunteer opportunity to take part in a drum circle event (ice cream included)
My queens need I say more?
My MidState fam
Guys, these people are my OG's! My second year as a titleholder and I was blessed with these beautiful humans
Cayla is my LIFE
Cayla is the real deal y'all! I love her so much, and I am so happy Teens in Training brought us together. Also, did I mention she was Miss New York's Outstanding Teen?
She is the queen of pink- I'm sensing Elle Woods vibes how about you?
My New Hampshire Bestie
Isabel is the most perfect human ever! She is truly changing the world, and I am proud to call her my best friend!
Karlee my adoptee buddy
My NC queen is all things goals and for inside joke's sake my mama has got it all!
Maddie Downer my LOVEEE
Literally love this New Hampshire queen with all my heart! Not to mention FaceTimes and texts late at night!
Girls that auction together, stay together
Miss PAOT's annual Purse Auction breaks the bank for all of us, but it is truly made by these ladies right here!
Alexa, play Mamma Mia
Friday nights and the lights are low and the dancing teen queens are here to party! Major thank you to the Fulton Bank for providing us tickets to the production of Mamma Mia!
What actually goes on
All those curls and makeup you see onstage is nowhere near what goes on backstage. In a nutshell it consists of pizza, blankets, and chit chats.
We all want the same thing, but we didn't realize that we were going to be so close through competition. In reality, it isn't even like you're competing against each other.
Elaine my MAIN
Panda lover meets penguin lover
Wow that is a cow
Just admiring the massive car exclusively at the Turkey Hill Experience. Love, love, LOVEEE ice cream!!!
Teens in Training
My whole heart belongs with these ladies!
Teens in Training
Taken right after our onstage performance, and we are all the closest till this day! Literally love every. one. of. these. girls.!!!
Hey batter batter swing
Stuffed my face with cotton candy and burgers with these girls. Reasons why I love baseball, it brings us together with universal commonality- food!
Our Hawaiian Welcome Party. Pineapples required thank you- No shoes required
Supporting my sisters
With or without crowns, you can bet we will be the loudest cheerleaders at you competition.
"Center" of my heart
These two girls have my whole heart, I love the Central Pennsylvania pageant so much, and I am so lucky to have these girls as a part of my family.
You just know that the friendship is serious when you get professional photos taken together. Thank you Rachel Mummert photography!
Caroline my MISS
My entire camera is just all Caroline, and I am not complaining.
MAOTeen class of 2018
In Atlantic City and snagged a photo with some really cool titleholders!
It's Karlee again
Seriously, love this girl! Here is a min throwback!
Lexi my idol from NJ
We met through Teens in Training, and ever since, I have been going to the New Jersey pageant to cheer her on!
Sister queens be roastin'
Holiday festivities calls for roasting marshmallows over a fire (no chestnuts today)
I embarked on a journey I would never forget and became friends with people from around our country and emerged ourselves in the culture- soccer is a must.
I met this sweet lady during my time in China! I love meeting new people from all over, and she gave me this panda pin to add to my collection (I have many) to remember her and my time in China.
The continuation of my amazing trip I took, and this beach was gorgeous! There were so many sea lions just laying around too.
As an active member of my school's Global Scholars Club, we fundraise for an organization that works to provide a hands-on education for children in the country of Rwanda.
I try to be candid every now and then, but right here is where I feel on top of the world. The landscape, the everything is just beyond words.
Ah yes, my love for pandas has taken me near and far. I spent this day volunteering at the panda base in Chengdu, China! Yes, that includes shoveling panda poop.
The Great Wall of China!! Fun fact, we hiked 26 miles on the Great Wall, it took SO long because my family is a little slow. In their defense, we were jet-lagged, but I was ready to make a marathon out of it!
The coolest marker on our journey! It was so cool at this point because it was essentially in the middle of nowhere, but there were cute little stores and people selling their unique products.
Chengdu is home to most of the pandas! I volunteered at the panda base, and lived out my dreams by having a panda-inspired tour including this huge contraption of a panda here! If you cannot tell, I have a thing for pandas ;)
