An important part of preparation for going to Miss Teen USA is not only being mentally prepared but also physically prepared! 🏃🏼♀️ I have been given an amazing meal plan provided by the @angelofrasier and I have also been hitting the gym everyday after school! 🏅 My current favorite exercise machine is “the abdominal coaster trainer”! What’s yours?! 💪🏼
Two weeks ago I attended the academic banquet. This event is put on by my school to celebrate the hard work students do and congratulate them for achieving a high honor roll GPA. I have been invited to the banquet the last two years and it’s rewarding to know that the time I spend doing homework and studying is being recognized!
Yesterday was national women in sports day!! 🥇 I come from a small town of 3000 people, so sports are a big portion of my life! I have been playing volleyball since the 7th grade. My team and I are very close as we are together for a lot of the summer and obviously all season. 💞 Here are a few pictures of my team and of course some action shots! 🏐
This weekend I was able to attend the “LifeScape mall walk”. @missdusa and I had so much fun! If you are unaware of what LifeScape is, here is their mission: “By providing diverse services, we live our mission of empowering children and adults with disabilities and medical rehabilitation needs to lead fulfilling lives. Our organizational values are Integrity, Compassion, Fiscal Responsibility, Collaborative Relationships, and Excellence.” LifeScape beautifully demonstrated their mission this Saturday. I was honored to be a guest and had such an amazing time!
A fun fact about me is that I am on both the dance and cheer team at Canton high school. I am a sideline varsity football cheerleader. Along with sideline cheer, I also play a role in being a side base! Another fun part of Cheer is being able to help with the Jr. cheer team! The Canton Dance Attack performs during half time at both football and basketball! For the last two years, I have had a blast getting to teach the kindergarten, forth, and fifth grade Jr. Dance Attack. #cheer #dance #cantonhigh #teenusa #missusa #misssdusa #missteensdusa #squad #team #girls #dancelife #cheerleading
Can I get a..... “GO PACK GO!!”🏈

A very important part of the holiday season is giving back. Last week I got to help Feeding South Dakota pack backpacks for students in need. They’re an amazing organization to work with and are truly impacting lives. I’m grateful to have had the chance to work, alongside my mom, with this wonderful organization.
I love Christmas because of all the family I get to spend time with! What’s your why?? 🎄
This seminar is truly one of a kind, and can be so life changing, even if you have never competed a pageant before! Invaluable life and communication skills will be taught from the best of the best! If you are interested in attending the Beauty is Power seminar, the link is in my bio above! Also feel free to DM me any questions! 💓 * Comment if you see yourself! * 🥰
My weekend in Atlanta was an exhilarating whirlwind to say the least. Right off the bat I stepped foot onto my first plane ride ever and even once I landed in Atlanta I took my first train ride. ✈️ I got to meet all my new sisters, and I already love them all so much! I am extremely grateful for all these experiences already. ❤️ I was able to receive my dream gown from the Sherri Hill. 👗Yes, I even got to meet Sherri Hill! Getting to play dress up for many hours in her store was truly a dream come true. So thankful for her advice and help when picking my Miss Teen USA gown! 👑 I also got to attend Miss Universe!! Again, THE MISS UNIVERSE! It still hasn’t hit me that I was there. The coolest part of attending Miss Universe was not only how empowering it was, how fun it was to see behind the scenes (what goes on during commercials) , but getting to meet so many people from around the world and see the beautiful differences and similarities amongst fans, that was this small town Midwest girls favorite part of the whole trip. 🌏 I want to thank my mom for making my trip to Atlanta absolutely perfect. Thank you to Future Productions for all their amazing support and help, none of this would be possible without you! A huge thank you to Jan and Kathy from Bridal Elegance for their amazing sponsorship and exquisite dress advice! Lastly, I am so thankful for this beautiful state, I get to come home to! 💓
Miss South Dakota Teen USA has landed in ATLANTA✈️ *fun fact this is my first flight ever!!* Any guesses to what my plans are?
So excited to be working with @angelofrasier on getting my body ready for Miss Teen USA! He is such a fun guy to work with and has mapped everything out for my meal plans. He made everything nice and simple! He’s also kicking my butt in the wonderful workouts he is providing. So excited and so thankful! 🏃🏼♀️💪🏼
So much to be thankful for this year! This year, I had the greatest thanksgiving with my family and ate so much yummy food. I also had the privilege to have a Friendsgiving! They were both sooo much fun! I of course, am so thankful for this year being your Miss South Dakota Teen USA and all of the fun things I will experience this year. Forever thankful for this beautiful state that I get to call home. 💓
Today I am taking the day to reflect on my fully unedited and authentic self. We have been brought up in a world that is seemingly “perfect”, from posts to poses to photoshop. This photo is untouched and unfiltered and was taken directly after @extremelashesby_mary put on my beautiful eyelash extensions! I find myself getting caught up in the stigmas of “beauty” just as many teenage girls do. Even when it gets hard, always remember that you are perfectly beautiful when you are fully and confidently YOU! Today is the #AsSheIs Challenge. I challenge @_katerade_ and @shaniaknutson to participate in this challenge along with me!
