A graduate student at the University of Central Florida, I am seeking a Masters in Health Administration and plan to work as an administrator at a children’s hospital. My life has been enriched through volunteerism that began when I was nine years old. I believe that each one of us has a role to play, and that all of us have something to contribute. The job of Miss America would give me a stronger voice to encourage not just my peers, but people of all ages, to make service a daily part of their lives.
