The average woman in the United States is between a size 16 and a size 18, while the average Miss USA contestant is between a size double 0 and a size two. Having been accepted into the Miss Wisconsin USA pageant, I want to show that you don't have to be a size two to fulfill the pageant's core values of confidence, grace, and a desire to help others. My goal is to normalize plus size women on stage. Please help me raise the money to reach that goal. Your donations will help me travel to the competition, cover my pageant fees, and purchase my pageant necessities.

Latest Update

26 days until the pageant, and I am still over $3,000 away from my goal. Basically, all of my time and money is currently going towards this pageant. That doesn't really bother me, because I am passionate about my platform and dedicated to this experience. However, I have to admit, I am looking forward to when I can focus on other aspects of my life. And I am especially looking forward to the near future when I no longer have to ask my parents for grocery money.

For me, and I am sure for many others, being in the pageant is an act of courage. I am putting a body that I struggle not to judge negatively on stage in front of people called judges. But I know I can do it, because I know that I am courageous. I may not conquer my fears, but I will always face them. Support Courage. Support Plus Size.

I haven't been on stage in over a year. Despite loving acting so much I got my BA in it, I have been relieved NOT to be on stage, because I haven't felt comfortable in my body in a long time. Acting has always been a safe place for me because I get to explore emotion and action without the vulnerability of being me. But, as I gained weight, I realized that the character can never be completely separated from my body, and that scared me. So, this September I am facing my fears. I am stepping on stage as ME, with all eyes on my body. And I am reclaiming this body as one deserving of a spotlight.

Updates for this week: I have put in the second part of my enrollment fees. I had my second meeting with the lovely Emily at Gowntastic. We found a dress for the introduction and are just waiting to make sure it is available. I also tried on pageant shoes. I was pleased to find that walking in them was much easier than I anticipated. The downer, however, is that, just like every shoe I have ever purchased, they are too narrow. My wide feet stick out over the edges of the shoe. However, Emily is an angel and is contacting a shoe designer to find out if he can make me custom shoes. Last update of the week, I purchased a bathing suit. I am hoping it is "the one", but I am waiting for it to be delivered so I can try it on, see if it's flattering, and decide if the color looks good with my wardrobe. Thank you to everyone who has donated, it has definitely helped with my costs. However, I still have many more purchases and fees. Please share this page and consider helping out!

Today I went for my first gown consultation! Emily and Ashley at Gowntastic helped me out and they were kind, supportive, and super helpful. No purchase today, but we have definitely narrowed the field. I am so excited to continue the process with Emily at Gowntastic.

I had my first makeup consultation with my Mary Kay consultant Lindsay Freisthler today. Today we worked on a routine to keep my skin nice while putting on and taking off makeup. (She also let me try this great pink lip.) Thanks Lindsay!
