Participating in MNAUSA gave me the chance to explore and embrace my identity as a Native woman. It was a powerful experience to meet and network with other Native woman who share a collective energy in yearning to make Indian Country a better place.

The MNAUSA pageant provided a space for my voice to be heard. Being Jemez Pueblo, German and Irish has always been a complex struggle of mine, this pageant helped me gain my confidence being mixed. It was empowering to learn from fellow Native women who are involved in their communities and creating change for our people across the United States. I am grateful to have had the opportunity to compete in such an extraordinary pageant. The sisterhood and confidence I gained during the pageant continue to motivate me to reach my goals.
