Even though Junkies try not to play favorites, Ashton Campbell makes it super hard to follow those rules…
Ashton is from a teeny-tiny town called Hindesville, Arkansas. There’s one stop sign and a population of only 75 people. And even though she grew up in a small town, Ashton discovered it didn’t mean she couldn’t dream big dreams. So, in small-town, big-girl fashion, Ashton decided to attend the largest university in the state and that she wanted to be Miss America one day.
Her first dream came true, thanks to the nearly $50,000 in scholarships she won through being named Miss Arkansas’ Outstanding Teen and Miss Arkansas. And, she was sooooooo close to achieving her second dream – finishing as the 2nd Runner Up to Miss America in Atlantic City.
And while she may have fallen short of her original goal, Ashton has not spent any time wallowing! She was extremely busy this year as Miss Arkansas, all over social media, and in our opinion, Ashton has set a new standard for titleholders in her state.
In fact, while we were preparing to write this post, we listened to Ashton’s original podcast and we fell in love with her all over again (You can listen to it for yourself at this link).
Told you it’s hard not to play favorites… Ashton’s just the kind of person others are drawn to. And fair warning – We’re guessing she’ll be a favorite of ours for years and years to come! 🙂
