There is only one day left before I embark on the journey of a lifetime, representing my incredible state of Florida at Miss USA. I can't express how excited, grateful, and blessed I am feeling right now. I never would have thought that the dream of a 5 year old little girl named Ashley would become reality, and that the reality would be even more amazing than the dream.

The support I have received has been innumerable; I thank each and every single one of you for being part of my road to Miss USA! 


I'm so incredibly grateful for all of the opportunities I have received this year. Words cannot express how grateful I am, but above all how blessed. 20 days till Miss USA 2021!
