Some people think that all it takes to win Miss Arizona USA is rocking it on stage in a swimsuit, walking with grace and poise in your evening gown and wowing the judge during an interview. But boy, is it ever so much more.
When Ben came into my life I quickly realized that it took something more to win that crown and I am forever in debt to his enlightenment. Before my race to the title, I was at the gym everyday working on my exterior.
However, it wasn’t until Ben’s artistic inspiration that I began to truly shine on the inside. I quickly learned that it was the quiet confidence that would make me stand out and I can say with conviction that it’s because of the creativity, imagination and unwavering support of Ben that I was able to ooze with confidence on that stage.
This title is just as much his at it is mine and I can only hope that whoever may read this is willing to open up a new chapter and embrace Ben’s intellect and style. You will not be disappointed. After all, although I was crowned just four short months ago, I already felt like I was a queen on the very first photoshoot I shared with Ben.
