Being a community leader and a role model for others is an important part of being a state title-holder. As my year as Mrs. Alaska U.S. All World Beauties is coming to a close and I am preparing for the national pageant, being active in my community and in my aviation community has played a vital role for my platform GirlsFlyToo. My two community service projects this year include being a Senior Advocate at the Chugiak/Eagle-River Senior Center and as a Peer Mentor at the Covenant House Alaska, a local shelter for teens. In my aviation community I have worked with my local chapter of Ninety-Nines, local EAA Chapter 42, and the Alaska Aviation Museum. Reaching out to our younger generation through being a community service role model speaks volumes. After all, the purpose of being a title-holder is to be a leader and a catalyst for community. This applies to our aviation community as well - encouraging and educating our younger generation to be involved in aviation.
As my national pageant approaches next month, I am ready to compete and bring home the national crown to Alaska! Thanks to all for your ongoing support of GirlsFlyToo! Blue skies and propellers.
