Being able to serve my DC community as America's Miss DC 2012 has been the best experience of my life thus far! I am no longer allowed to wear my crown and sash as of January 1st, 2013 and a NEW America's Miss DC will be crowned soon on February 23rd! However, I must thank friends, family, supporters, sponsors and all 617,996 residents of the District for welcoming me with open arms this past year! Thank you also to America's Miss Pageants for giving me the opportunity to serve you!!! I am forever grateful and will always be your America's Miss District of Columbia 2012! Sending love and wishing you all the BEST 2013 has to offer! Remember, as one door closes, another is opening before you know it!
