"Since August 25th 2012, it’s been a joyous and momentous occasion in my life to be garnished by a crown and title so admirable. I consider my reign a true blessing from God, as well as a challenge to overcome the negative prospectors. I hope that the road is now paved with respect and awareness for our future Miss Native American, USA title holders. I’m in hopes that as she walks into a room, eyes will continue to grace at not only her beauty, but admiration for her hard work and dedication. I continue to say, this pageant is history in the making. We are here tonight to witness part 2 in this story, as we crown only the second title holder of Miss Native American, USA.
