Where to even start—— I remember meeting Matthew at Miss West Virginia USA in the fall of 2013. From there, we became such good friends! You were always so supportive of me and continued to push me to compete after not making top 15 my first year at Miss North Carolina USA. From that day on, I started working so hard and made sure that I surrounded myself with not only the best coaches, but wonderful people. When Miss North Carolina USA rolled around in the fall of 2014, you were there cheering me on both nights, texting me, encouraging and supporting me. I still couldn’t believe when I made the cut from 15, then to 10, then TOP 5 and ended up 2nd Runner up! I don’t think any of it would have been possible without you along side! Thank you for everything. You are truly a one of a kind and I am beyond thankful to call you a friend!
