As pageant weekend comes to a close, I can't help but think of all the amazing and supportive people around me! Thank you to my friends and family who drove all the way across the state to watch me. Thank you to Bri for being the best sister queen a girl could ask for. Thank you to Joe at The Black Swan Dress Boutique for my beautiful gown and earrings. And thank you to all the other incredible contestants I had the honor of meeting. I am forever changed because of you! Thanks to the Miss Nebraska's Outstanding Teen program I walked away with hundreds of dollars in scholarships! I won overall talent, scholastic achievement, and placed 3rd runner up! I am beyond grateful for this organization and everything I have gained from competing! I may not have walked away with the crown but what I did walk away with was life skills and friendships I will forever cherish! To Kelsie, you were amazing and so deserving of this special title! I can't wait to see what you do with it!
