I was crowned Miss Idaho on June 9th, 2012. I am 19 years old and working towards a Bachelor’s Degree in Broadcast Journalism from Brigham Young University. I have been involved in the Miss America Organization for just over two years, and will be competing for Miss America 2013 in Las Vegas, Nevada. The pageant will be broadcast live on ABC on Saturday, January 12th, 2013. My talent is a piano solo, and my platform is Handbags of Hope: “Giving Women Confidence They Can Carry.” Visit the Handbags of Hope Idaho Facebook page for more details on how you can help women in need.
