Miss Ohio was only my second pageant ever, and I'm very proud of how I preformed. In all phases of competition I offered my best and I stayed true to who I am. Throughout the day the other girls and I grew closer. At some points I'd venture to say it was like a party back stage! Every girl there was so helpful and welcoming; it was such a positive environment. I did not place, but the girls who did, did so deservingly. I'm excited to try again next year with another year of dance and experiences under my belt.
