Miss Vermont 2016
School: Colby-Sawyer College
Talent: Spoken word Poetry "Mockingbird"
Platform: Find a Happy Place - Positive Mental Health & Wellness
"The critical paradox of mental health is stunningly simple: to break the stigmas surrounding mental illness and talking about good mental health, we must actually talk about mental illness and good mental health. I have spent the last ten years finding ways to continue a discussion about the importance of good mental health, because for the last ten years I've been learning what it means to live with depression. My passion for breaking down the barriers and stigmas that surround mental health has brought me to the unique position of advocacy."
