I can honestly say that the Miss Massachusetts 2012 Pageant was the greatest experience of my life. Not only did I have the opportunity to represent my passion and platform, Fit for Success, but I was able to meet 15 incredible friends. I learned how to multitask between nursing school, appearances, exams, dance practices, paperwork, exercising, fundraising, and eating right. I learned to enhance my life in SO many ways, especially on how to make my body a healthier one which led me to feel more confident about myself. I learned how to be more poised on-stage and in my every-day speaking, and developed a further passion for the Miss America Organization. I learned that my fellow "competitors" are actually the kindest, most dynamic and intelligent group of women from across the state of Massachusetts, and I felt completely honored to be part of that group! I accomplished my goal of making it into the Top 9, and was thrilled! Most importantly, I am SO amazingly proud of Taylor Kinzler, our new Miss Massachusetts who has already done a BEAUTIFUL job representing our state! Here are a few pictures from the competition!

Since Miss Massachusetts, my summer has been a whirlwind! I was as busy as a bee working at the Boston Harbor Hotel, perfecting my sports bra/running shoe tanlines, reading books, spending time with friends, traveling to Minnesota for a week to hug my family, and eating a few too many cookies! I am truly excited for a new school year, a new running routine, and a new pageant season to begin!
