This past year has been one of the most amazing years of my life. It was filled with so much laughter, kindness, and love. This year, I checked off many things on my bucket list: I scuba-dived for the first time in Bali. I had the opportunity to meet the legendary Sherri Hill. I was able to achieve my dream of becoming Miss NJ USA. The list is endless. I am so proud of the person that this year has shaped me to be and I am so excited for what next year has to hold. Thank you to everyone who made 2018 wonderful and let’s take on 2019 together💪🏽🎉 Photography: @grantfoto Hair/MU: @mk.makeup.artistry
It’s been a little over a month and I’m still on cloud nine 🌥 thank you @grantfoto for this amazing shot and @mk.makeup.artistry for killing my makeup 💖 one of the things I love about being a titleholder is that I get to work with such talented people!
Merry Christmas everyone! I hoped everyone has a very warm and cozy holiday 🎄 I spent my Christmas meeting young children who were born deaf and mute and have just undergone pro-bono cochlear implant surgeries in India. These children and their families have gone through so much and it was so eye-opening to spend the day with them. I have so many stories to share and I will soon! But for now, I wish everyone a very merry Christmas 💖
I am honored to be invited to the Turn the Tide symposium and discuss how we can combat the opioid epidemic occurring in our country. Everyday, more than 115 people die overdosing on opioids❗️This is a major crisis happening specifically within my age cohort and we need to raise awareness about this issue. I was able to meet some inspiring people tonight including the Dean of Robert Wood Johnson Medical School, the NJ Commissioner of Health, and Pennsylvania Senator Street and I was able to discuss my own views on how we can overcome this epidemic. Thank you to the American Pain Association for such an educating and eye-opening event!
Thank you to @sherrihill and her amazing team for making me feel like an actual queen today. I can’t believe I just found my Miss USA gown! This is a dream come true and I couldn’t be more thankful; a huge thank you to @infusion_boutique for being such an incredible sponser and making this all possible 💖
It’s been almost 3 weeks and I’m still on cloud 9. I remember stepping off stage after being crowned and seething this colorful suitcase and being in complete awe of how amazing my sponsors are. This suitcase from @style_eyez_, owner of eye for design, was filled with amazing goodies and I am so thankful for them ❤️
I had so much fun taking over California these past few days with my favorite gal 💗 A huge thank you to @hyfve and their amazing team for this opportunity! Please be sure to check out their Instagram to see some of the cutest clothes ever!
Wow, what a week! I won the title of Miss NJ USA, I got to eat incredible food with my family on thanksgiving, I had my first ever appearance with @missnjteenusa , AND ITS MY BIRTHDAY! 🎉 But not only is it my birthday, it is also my brothers birthday!

I like to think of him as my “favorite birthday present yet” 😉 Happy 15th birthday to my baby brother/biggest supporter/best friend - love you!
