"There are times in your life when you can make decisions that will drastically change your life.
It wasn't until 2016 that I knew, being a state rodeo queen was my passion. I suddenly realized that being Miss Rodeo Wyoming was the ultimate dream.
That’s when the fun began. I ate, slept and breathed that dream. I took up a philosophy of what I like to call the "Three R’s” Reading. Riding and Rhinestoning. I channeled everything I had into chasing my dream. I made the conscious decision to work harder than I ever had before. This hard work and a will to accomplish a goal is often the part of rodeo queening that others don’t see or even understand.
Winning the title of MRW 2018 wasn’t just a way for me to live out my dream for a year, it was a way to teach myself that I can do anything if I work hard enough for it.
I will take the memories and friendships I have acquired this year with me for forever. I can’t thank everyone enough for making this year a reality. I hope that everyone has the opportunity to fulfill their dreams the way I did.
There comes a point in life when quarterbacks have to throw their last football, bull riders take their last wrap and rodeo queens have to take the crown off their hat. My only advice, do it. Enter the rodeo, join the team, take the job, make the big move or run for the title. Don’t be afraid to work hard and let your choices change your life. I know they changed mine.
Thank you for the greatest ride ever.
With all my love,
