WHY I WANT TO BECOME MISS RODEO WASHINGTON
Since the first time I was able to pull myself up onto the back of a horse, I knew I was exactly where I needed to be. As a fourth-generation cowgirl, my family has helped preserve rodeo’s legacy and the western way of life, something I take to heart. Rodeo is famously referred to as a family sport, and between the two, they have instilled in me the values of perseverance, hard work, and integrity. As an avid rodeo fan, fierce competitor and horsewoman, serving as Miss Rodeo Washington 2020 is an opportunity to share what I am most passionate about with others, professional rodeo, and the agricultural industry. Through this opportunity, I wish to live out those values in mentoring youth, educating the public on the sport of rodeo, and while representing the state of Washington. Serving as Miss Rodeo Washington would be a privilege and honor.
