I am so excited to be starting my first blog! I wanted to share with you all my reasoning for why I wanted to start blogging in the first place. I started this journey when I started competing in pageants. When competing in the Miss America organization it is important that you come up with a platform that you promote during your reign. I wanted to make sure that I picked something that I was very passionate about. I thought long and hard, and it was a difficult decision. I don't know why it was because it was right under my nose. It was something that I had been involved with my whole life...The Arts! I started my platform Keeping the Arts Alive in 2015 and it was mainly an awareness program where I would go to schools across South Carolina and talk to the students about the arts. This was such a wonderful thing, but as years went on I thought that it wasn't enough. Wondering how I could raise even more awareness to the arts in our community, I thought what better way than social media and through a blog!
I want my blog to be a hub for ALL things arts. I will be covering everything from community theatre, fashion design, arts in different cities, as well as the most important thing, the arts in our schools. I want to be able to use this blog as a means of communication between the arts community to be able to lean on each other in times of need. I hope that you all join me in this exciting new journey, and I look forward to hearing from you all soon!
