1.What does it mean to you to be a good friend?
Honesty is the foundation for any relationship. Honesty furnishes trust and consistency which are prerequisites for any valuable friendship. A good friend will be honest with you, no matter good or bad, yet remain loyal to you through it all.
2.When can you tell you are under stress?
Stress accompanies success. My cheer coach at Purdue University frequently told us, “Pressure is a privilege!” Whenever I feel stressed, I recall this phrase and transform my stress into gratitude. If things were easy, everyone would do them. Stress means you are stepping out of your comfort zone and becoming a better version of yourself, thus, a privilege!
3.How do you handle difficult situations?
As a previous D-1 athlete and a law school graduate, I have been faced with and overcome several difficult situations. When I am faced with one, I block everything out and focus on that situation. I want to be sure I give it my all, so I ultimately have no regrets, regardless of the outcome. Trying my best is all I can ever offer myself.
4.How do you describe dignity?
“She is clothed in strength and dignity, and she laughs without fear of the future.” Proverbs 31:25. This quote is the perfect representation of pageant women: empowering, productive, and worthy of not only respect but self-respect.
5.What is something no one knows about your family?
Not many people know this, but royalty runs in my family! I am related to Princess Grace Patricia Kelly of Monaco. Prior to her reign, she was an American actress in the fifties.
