Emmy Winning News Anchor & Reporter Miss Minnesota 2011, Natalie Davis has a lot to tell about The First-ever Miss Kansas’ Teen 2023, Erin Rolfe, read "My sweet girl Erin Rolfe WON Miss Kansas’ Teen! (Yes, that’s my old coanchor Felicia’s daughter!) I could not be more proud of this girl! She’s beautiful, inside and out! She worked so hard to develop her interview skills and prepare her talent (classical vocal; someone laughed at me because they saw me in the audience mouthing her notes and willing the perfect breath support! She NAILED it!) Erin, I still look back on my year as Miss Minnesota’s Teen and remember what a PIVOTAL year it was in my life! You are in for a RIDE! And you’re going to do amazing work and see even more amazing growth this year!!! I love you!!! P.S. Otto and Alden liked helping you rehearse."

4 DAYS until Miss Kansas’ Teen 2023!!!

As the competition grows closer, I’ve been thinking about my first introduction to the Miss America and Miss Kansas Organizations.

I was a kindergartener when Miss Kansas 2011, Carissa Kelley, was the special guest at my friend’s birthday party.

I can remember being starstruck and admiring her and her sparkly crown. Fast forward 12 years. Now, I’m competing for that sparkly crown, the job and the opportunity to inspire young girls.
