I never had any interest in the promotion of North Dakota, but wanted to speak about my platform and volunteer across the state. Within two weeks of being crowned Miss North Dakota’s Outstanding Teen 2015, and getting a good strong dose of North Dakota nice, I realized promoting my state is a large priority.
When people think of North Dakota, they think of small towns and communities. But many people don't think of those communities as being full of caring and helpful people. I never really thought about it much either until one day when I was in 5th grade.
