How has the world you come from shaped your dreams and aspirations?  I grew up in a very supportive family that always encouraged me to dream big. Their support allowed me to participate in all of my school’s music ensembles, but it was not until high school when I discovered my love for music. I was privileged to work with enthusiastic directors whose passion inspired me to want to teach. They always pushed my limits as a person and a performer while encouraging me to try new things. I saw them change the lives of so many students, like myself, by inspiring them to go after their dreams. My teachers, Jeff Knutson and Jim Berry, along with the encouragement from my parents, shaped my reasoning for wanting to become a music teacher.

Of all the ways you could succeed in your life, why have you chosen to succeed in the Miss America Pageant?  I participate in the Miss America system because I like to challenge myself to learn from other empowering women and to be surrounded by strong leaders in my community. Competing in pageants has changed my life. I have learned how to communicate with all people and how to seek change. As Miss Wild Rose, I plan to be a positive role model for my community and continue to share my passion for the importance of music and arts education.

What social issue, other than your social impact initiative, will have the greatest impact on your generation and why? One of the largest issues that impacts my generation is discrimination. This country has seen a large increase in discriminatory actions against those of different races, religions, genders, and sexualities. This country was built to be the land of the free. By accepting others’ differences, we can embrace what it means to be American.
