When I read this quote, I immediately think about those who inspired me along the way.

I pay homage to those women like Jeannine Ford and April Gilligan-Martinez who showed me from the beginning of my pageantry career that a woman can be the most powerful leader in the room.

I saw adjudicators that sat in the most prolific seats in the house while aiding in the growth of performers and staff like Shirley Whitcomb. Even today, having the privilege of being a part of an organization run by powerful women with decades of excellence at the highest level who continue to help me develop as a creator like Stephanie Furniss.
