Well, rhinestones and bling are no new thing to me, but I am still so excited every time I have the opportunity to work with a new title holder. What I love about the Miss America Org is that the girls aren't just about a great walk and great smile, they have content. These girls absolutley make the MAO proud and I am so impressed with each of them.
As a contestant in the MAO, you have to have a platform, which is a topic you are passionate about and are working it thoughout your community. When I was a contestant (yes, 150 years ago) in the MAO, my personal platform was Domestic Abuse Prevention, a cause that is still so close to my heart. These girls take these passions and they travel their own areas and beyond to educate and empower others using the crown to help them get in the door to do so. MAO is a positive experience that empowers young women to not only be their best but allows them to help others be their best as well.
If you would like to get involved in your local MAO program, you can find info here.
Wishing all the best to these beautiful souls as they go on this one-of-a-kind adventure.
