As 2019 opens I sit and reflect on all of the ways I’ve leveled up throughout 2018. I’ve watered my flowers and my garden has grown. I landed my dream job, graduated with a Masters, celebrated in Vegas, traveled to Greece on a service trip, and closed the year with winning Miss Delaware USA 2019. However, two months before I was crowned I found out news that made my world stop. I became aware the man I once believed to be my biological father was not related to me. As you can imagine, this monopolized my time, thoughts, and emotions. It wrecked me completely. I was mad, hurt, betrayed, and confused. I honestly still feel a lot of these emotions today. However, I know that the universe gives the strongest battles to its toughest soldiers and I will get through this. I’m going to focus a huge part of my 2019 journey on getting through this challenge and maintaining resilience. On the bright side, I’ve had two loving men who claim me as their own and have helped raise me to be who I am today. I am so thankful for both of them. I may never know my origins but I do know I am an American and as an American with an unidentifiable background I have the ability to represent all cultures and ethnicities. Onward & upward all 2019. #roadtomissusa #missdeusa #missusa #missteenusa #ilovemyplantjob
