Social Impact Initiative: My Social Impact Initiative is about teaching children how to be safe online and how not to fall victim to online predators.

It is my goal as Miss America to teach children and parents how to be safe online and to make the digital world a safer place.

What is the best advice you’ve ever received? The best advice I have received was from my mother. She told me that I had the power to change lives and the world, and could do so all by myself if I set my mind to it. Growing up in a single-mother household, I learned independence from a young age. Since telling me this, I have taken the world by storm and set my mind to many things. I have accomplished many goals just by setting my mind to them.
