To everyone that came out to support me as I followed my dreams on this night, thank you so much. It was a Friday evening and there were many things you all could have been doing, but instead you all spent time with me and I'm forever grateful. The love and energy you all displayed filled the room and was highly contagious. I'm so glad we were able to share that moment in time together. 

Unfortunately, due to questionable judgment, I was not chosen as the winner of the competition. This honestly made me angry and depressed for a whole day, but thankfully the words of wisdom and love that people shared with me during this time helped me escape those conditions. 

With that being stated, let's keep moving forward! Although we've came a long way, this is still the beginning! I'm excited for this journey and what's in stored, I hope you all are too.
