How Could I do it Without Family and Friends?
I would like to take a few minutes to thank the people who have been by my side through this journey. To have family and friends at the pageant this year was the amazing. I had my mom and stepdad, dad and stepmom, sisters Edie and Paige, and friends the Glikos, Claire, and Shayla. I have never felt more support as I entered competition for the pageant. To have all of these people encouraging me was the best gift I could have asked for. Thank you so much friends and family! I love you! I also was assisted greatly by master hatter- Jimmy Harrison. I have never met a man kinder or more supportive than Jimmy. If anyone reading this ever needs a hat that they will treasure for life, I highly recommend Double H Hat Company out of Darby, Montana. Currently Jimmy is working on a few hats for me to use during the year, as well as the hat he donates to Miss Rodeo America. I hope everyone is excited to see BIG surprises. As coronation draws near, I am constantly reminded of how I could never do all of the preparation alone. Thank you so much to everyone who is putting together this fundraiser. It is going to be a blast! I wouldn't be here today without my family and friends. Thank you for everything.
