When I was crowned Mrs. United Nations, I never expected to immerse myself in the work, and the uncertainty, I encountered during my reign. Yet through all of it, I truly feel I came out a stronger, more intelligent, and appreciative woman. I grew steadfast in my convictions and expanded my network, including friends and mentors, that has since led to wonderful job opportunities! My crown allowed me to share my passions and expand on my initiative, #RiseUp: Impact Through the Arts. Although I didn’t win THE crown of Mrs. United Nations, I can’t say I lost in anyway as a person. My journey is just beginning, and I have the United Nations Pageants Organization to thank for the bountiful opportunities that continue to present themselves to me and allow me to further grow into the woman I aim to be.
