Essays

Essay #1

I want to be crowned the next National Queen because I am all about volunteering and promoting great things! I have a passion for helping others and always pitching in where I can. I love making a difference in my community and giving little girls a positive role model to look up to. I would do my absolute best to represent the American Coronet pageant everywhere I go. I believe you can only achieve great things if you give it your all and fully believe in yourself. I fully believe pageants are my calling and Id love to share happiness and positivity with anyone and everyone.

Essay #2

If I could spend the day with any women I’m history it would have to be Oprah. I absolutely love how down to earth and genuine she is. And on every show she gave away something to every person just out of the kindness of her heart, she volunteered at many community events and donated very large amounts to animal shelters, homeless shelters, and good causes. What I love most about her is that she always put everyone else first. I would have to say we would go to lunch, then off to an animal shelter or barn to talk about how compassionate we both are for them.

Easy #3

The best thing about my home state is not only all the options for things to do, but the scenery and the beauty of nature. We have 2 state parks located within 10 minutes of my home which host various activities throughout the year for little to no cost. We also have ice skating rinks and rollerblading rinks which is great for family fun time or even a place to go with friends. Overall I would say the absolute best think about my home state Illinois would be the community involvement. No matter what happens or what anyone goes through there is over 40 groups that will get together and he’ll anyone and everyone, and I find that to just be amazing. No matter what life you have or what you’ve been through, many people can come together and truly help one another.
