Miss North Dakota Teen USA across my chest was a wonderful experience of community, commitment, and courage. I realized that any girl, with confidence in one hand and coffee in the other, can achieve her dreams. Whether playing with kindergarteners on the floor, shaking the hand of a sponsor, or listening to the elderly, I had been gifted a platform to reach people of all ages, genders, and backgrounds. Throughout my year of reign, I worked to become the best “me” possible both in the cockpit (pilot) and under the crown. Being Miss North Dakota Teen USA challenged me to become a girl with a mind, a woman with conviction, and a lady with class.

As Miss Pennsylvania Teen USA 2020, I reached an unconditional love for exactly who I am. I spent my whole life being afraid of expressing my Asian-American background, until I found the Miss USA Organization. I proved that no one should be ashamed of their heritage, nor should it lower their self-confidence. Standing on the Miss Teen USA stage surrounded by 50 other confidently beautiful contestants, was truly empowering. I met the most amazing girls, and made friendships that will last a lifetime. The Miss Teen USA competition is a true representation of the beautiful diversity in our country.
