I would like to thank Ms. America Pageant for the experience of a lifetime and providing me with new opportunities to further my platform on fighting autism and promotion of organic living. I also would like to thank all sponsors, organizers, non-profits and everyone who was involved in making this year truly great for me.”

I hope that in 2018 we will all try to be kinder and more loving towards each other and try to be more understanding to someone else’s needs. Kindness does not cost anything, but it is priceless, so we all can contribute something and make this world better today than it was yesterday.”
