Meeting Miss America

This past weekend I met Miss America. She is so down to earth. I never paid attention to pageants so I was not familiar with her prior. Nonetheless, it was a very pleasant experience. She spoke about how she too was discouraged by others not seeing her potential, like many other black girls. And it did not even pertain to her interests in pageants, but her other passion: music and the arts. I was honored to simply be in the presence of a young, black woman who was following her dreams and defying the odds and being an ideal example for young girls who look like us.
