When I moved to Washington, I went to my very first rodeo. I saw the Rodeo Queens, and I knew I wanted to be one too. I quickly got involved with what I could, and I learned what it would take to be a queen. One thing I didn't realize was how much work this one title would take. So, when I tried out for Miss Cheney Rodeo Queen in 2009, I was surprised when I lost. I had done everything, but it was more intense than I thought. They said I didn't have enough experience. For the next year, I went to as many rodeos that I could, and got help from previous rodeo queens. I put in 120% so that I could be sure to win the next year. When I tried out in 2010, it proved that my hard work paid off. I became the 2011 Miss Cheney Rodeo Queen. My determination to be a Queen made me work hard and explore new things. There were parts about rodeos and queens that I would never expected. Like the fact that there is a Miss Rodeo America, who knew?! During my rein, however, even more new doors and opportunities opened up to me. I have learned more than I ever thought I would, and I have made new friends in the process. I am now aiming for the top, and to be the best.
