I am intelligent, ambitious, hard-working, caring and most importantly, thriving to live and be the best that I can be. I make large lists of dreams, and accomplish them; Miss America Multiverse has been who I am, before Miss Multiverse was created, and I am confident that I represent every aspect of the multi-facets in a young woman today.
