Thank You!!!!

Friends and family, THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!

I would just like to say that I had incredible week. The twenty five other girls who I competed with were, by far, the best group of women that I have ever had the pleasure of being around. This week was such a blast and I feel strongly that each of them deserve the Miss New York crown as much as I do. I hope that I can learn and grow from every title holder as my year progresses and it is my number one priority to include them in my daily agenda. Miss America is about the thousands of young women who are representing their local area and making a difference in the lives of others. I hope that I can make them proud. “To whom much is given, much is expected.”

I could not have done this without my “village.” My support system is vast and I would never be where I am today without each person who has been along for the ride. I have two of the best parents in the entire world and I am so thankful that they have done nothing but be supportive of me…always. Thank you to each of you who attended the pageant this past week. I feel certain I had the best cheering section at the St. George! 

Facebook and Twitter friends and followers, I am so incredibly humbled by all of your response to my success this weekend. Words cannot describe how overjoyed it makes me that all of you are supporting me from near and far. If you have posted on Facebook, sent me a message, called or texted, please know that I recieved it!! The past couple of days have been a whirlwind and I am literally just sitting down to my computer for the first time. I appreciate your kind words and messages and will do my best to respond to each of them. I love you all and I am so thankful for each of you.

I cannot wait to share my year. However, i’m pretty sure that this will be my last post from Tumblr. :( I look forward to sending you the new link to my new blog because i’m the new MISS NEW YORK!!! 

I love you all!!!!
