Why I want to be Miss Teen Rodeo Montana: Rodeo runs deep in my veins, and to me, it isn't just a sport, it's a way of life.  And I would like the chance to be able to share my passion and reflect a positive image to today's youth.  Above all, I want to give back to rodeo what it has given to me.  It has not only taught me good sportsmanship, honor, family values and pride, but it has taught me that no matter what you are doing, if you're smiling and looking ahead, this time, like all times, will be a great one.
