Why do you want to be Miss Rodeo USA 2017?
My desire to run for Miss Rodeo USA was sparked at a young age after meeting a former title holder. I fell in love with the essence of what it means to be Miss Rodeo USA. She is a role model to all generations who expresses qualities such as class, intelligence, horsemanship, personality and determination. After meeting such an empowering ambassador for the sport of rodeo as a young girl, I was inspired to challenge myself to strive to become the best I could be. I grew up living, dreaming and learning as much as I could about America’s sport and by embarking on this journey, rodeo has played a major role in the person I am today. A rodeo queen is the face and often the voice of the rodeo industry and organization she represents. The actions of Miss Rodeo USA serve to represent the International Professional Rodeo Association, its stock contractors, competitors and sponsors as well as the rich history of rodeo traditions the association has formed over the last 59 years. The title of Miss Rodeo USA comes with the great responsibility of keeping that rich tradition and history alive and growing. To uphold this duty requires confidence, hard work, perseverance and a deep-rooted passion for the sport itself. I believe Miss Rodeo USA can make a difference in the world through expressing her passion for rodeo. I believe that I was born with this kind of passion in my blood. At six years old, I enjoyed playing “cowgirl”; which entailed me sneaking over to my neighbor’s yard and attempting to ride their Great Dane. After a few calls from my neighbor, my parents enrolled me in horseback riding lessons and I’ve never looked back. If I were to be blessed with the title of Miss Rodeo USA, I would share my passion for this sport with the rest of the world as well as utilize this opportunity to promote my platform that encourages youth involvement in rodeo. If I’m fortunate enough to carry the Miss Rodeo USA crown, my heart’s desire is to inspire other young, true cowgirls to find their passion, just like I was inspired many years ago.
