I have had to withdraw from the 100th Anniversary Miss America Competition due to contracting COVID-19 despite being fully vaccinated and testing negative for Covid upon my arrival. I am now isolating, for the next 10+ days, alone with my thoughts, loving messages from family, friends and supporters…and a lot of time to reflect.” This weeks culminates in the 100th anniversary of the Miss America Pageant Competition.
