Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals

Style. Scholarship. Success. Service.

When practicing for any Miss America state or local interview, one question every girl prepares for is, “what is your favorite point on the crown?” I have come to learn and love that every girl has a different answer, but for me, “service” is my favorite.

During my reign of Miss America I have realized that the job is a year of service. A job where you get to be a part of organizations across the country who are making a difference. A job of serving others and hopefully bringing light and love to the people you meet. The more I reflect on this reality, the more it doesn’t feel like a job at all. As the year goes on, I find myself coming away with a different perspective on life and a deeper desire to be a part of something greater than myself.

One organization I have fallen in love with is Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. I currently have the honor of serving as the National Goodwill Ambassador for CMN hospital. As an ambassador, I get to travel the country, visiting their hospitals and raising awareness on donating to this amazing organization. Every time I go into a hospital I see firsthand how miracles are happening every single day. And what a blessing it is.

The young man pictured above was my valentine this year, Logan. I have been blessed enough to hang out with Logan a few times this year, and to say I am changed because of him is an understatement. His obvious joy is contagious to everyone he comes in contact with, and I am always counting down the days until I get to see him again.

One of my dearest memories as a CMN ambassador was during a recent visit to one of their hospitals. I walked in to hang out with a young boy, around the age of seven, and while there I got to witness him take his first steps in front of his father. There was no way I could hold myself together. Seeing his joy and smile light up the whole hospital was a moment I will cherish for the rest of my life.

These kids have so much wisdom and courage, and I strive to be more like them everyday. I always tell people, if there is a way for you to be involved with CMN Hospitals, you hands down should. You will undoubtedly walk away a better person because of it.

I’m excited to share more in depth stories about the life as Miss America and the miracles I get to witness every day.

Much Love,
