Miss America preparation thus far has been amazing! My evening gown is ordered from the lovely Sarah Moses at The Pageant Shop. I also have my interview outfit selected; all I need is a great pair of shoes and some accessories to complete the look! I have been keeping busy, traveling all over to work outs, mock interviews, and coachings. Thank you to Jason Young of YoungQuest Fitness for sponsoring me as my personal trainer. Also thank you to Cheri Kennedy and Don Baker for your tremendous help with interview and improving my overall communication skills. And of course, thank you to the members of the Miss Minnesota board for helping me with every aspect of my preparation. This has been such a growing experience for me, and I cannot wait to see how far I come by the time Miss America rolls around.
Don't forget to watch me compete for the title of Miss America LIVE on ABC from Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino in Las Vegas on January 14, 2012!
