Platform Statement

“Make an Impact”

Making an impact is something that all of us truly desire to do, and through my year of reign as Miss Quincy's Outstanding Teen, I want to promote positive and inspiring ways to make an impact in the way that they enjoy. Through my year, I am going to expand my own impact through service and opportunities to volunteer, but also will promote the idea that you can do great things, too. You can make your own impact in whichever way you desire. Whether public relations, humane animal care, education, or athletics are the issues close to your heart, that is where you can start carving your path, and I want to help you find that. The Miss Quincy Scholarship Program is a representative for scholarship, style, success, and service. I will promote both this title and my platform, through all of these points, accentuating service. By the end of my year as Miss Quincy's Outstanding Teen, I hope that our impact can spread for miles, and positive strides for this world can be made because of us.
