McKensie Garber, Miss Missouri 2015, instantly won us over when we heard her say the following phrase on her podcast (which you can catch right here…)
“The heartbeat of my year as Miss Missouri is my platform, which is Character Plus… I’m speaking to students about the importance of making good choices all the time, even when no one’s looking, in order to live a life of integrity and to be truly happy, healthy and successful.”
McKenzie’s comments should remind everyone that Platforms are not “superfluous” in the least. Rather, your Platform is an amazing opportunity to reach people all over your state, not just about something that’s important to you – But about something that’s important to THEM!
In addition to McKenzie’s inspiring platform, her story of how she came to become Miss Missouri’s Outstanding Teen and then Miss Missouri, is worth the listen as well! Considering she’s from a town of 419 people, she proves there’s great value in following your dreams as hard and as fast as you can!
Junkies know McKensie has a bright future ahead of her, and that students all across the state of Missouri have a brighter future ahead of them – because of her inspiring words about developing their character. THANK YOU McKENSIE for all your hard work this year!!! It’s been a pleasure watching you “do your thang” – Junkies Love You!!! 🙂
And now, who do we think has the best opportunity to be named Miss Missouri 2016?
GOOD LUCK LADIES!!! Junkies Love Missouri!!! 🙂
