Well, I didn’t win – or even make the top ten, but I feel so proud of how well I performed on stage. Here are a few pictures from the competition.. On-Stage Question, Swimsuit, Evening Gown, and Talent.
Your competition photos are awesome! You should be extremely proud of yourself! Walking across the Miss America stage is a dream for many, but a reality for you. Treasure the memories and friendships you made.

Ditto what Shannon said. I am so proud of you, but of course you know that already. The entire Miss DC Organization is proud of you and the way you represented the nation’s capital. I, of course, am biased and know how hard you worked to acheive the level of fitness you did. You looked amazing each and every night from prelims through the finals. Thanks for making me look good!
