I most definitely had a tough teenage phase like most everyone else! I was raised solely by my mother and grandmother with very little communication with my father. I never really got to establish a solid relationship with him. Due to that, it made my childhood very difficult. In middle school I had severe acne, braces, and was a victim of bullying. During my teenage years I completely rebelled and had my fair share of detentions and run-ins with authority. I have no idea how my poor mom handled me! I was going down the wrong path and was a very angry, troubled young girl. It wasn’t until I was 16 in my junior year of high school, I realized I didn’t want to grow up that way and have that kind of lifestyle after looking at some of my peers.

“I started taking college classes in high school and advanced math (fun tidbit about me, math was always my favorite subject and I love to crunch numbers!) and was able to graduate one year early. It wasn’t until college I had any kind confidence within myself. I need to let go of the ideas in my head that I was never good enough, that I didn’t deserve good things, or that I couldn’t accomplish anything. I really had to let go and forgive everything that had happened in my life and create a confidence within myself. That is why as a beauty queen I have made it my mission to decrease bullying and improve the mental health and confidence in youth. I was recognized by the Miss America Organization for my community service and have dedicated over 200 hours serving my community, speaking to children at schools and organizations, talking to the public, writing published articles, and built a website to hopefully decrease the bullying epidemic and suicide rates in young adults and I plan to continue to mentor young women.”!bio/c193m

She has it right about gaining that confidence within yourself and then noting else matters

Took me until Uni when I started gaining confidence as a woman so dont feel like hope is lost if you still feel shy and unworthy in high school because one day you will become a strong woman
