What is your most memorable contribution as a Campus Queen?:
My most memorable contribution as a campus queen so far has been organizing a coronation ball for the campus kings and queens to attend. Prior to my reign, there was only a small private gathering following the coronation of the Mister and Miss. In order to further appreciate and celebrate the campus royalty, I pushed for the reception following coronation to opened to students as a coronation ball. The kings and queens that walked in coronation along with visiting courts and family were able to celebrate not only my king, court, and I, but themselves as well. They were very appreciative and proud to be the face of their organizations. This contribution to my campus is very memorable because it allowed for the kings and queens of the campus to take more pride in not only their positions as the face of their organization, but of their institution as well. I hope that this new tradition will be carried on through the next queen's reign. Even though it is still fairly early in my reign, I receive so much love and support from my campus that I am able to continuously accomplish and provide. With my campus behind me, I was able to become the very first Miss Lincoln University of PA to place as second runner up at the HBCU Hall of Fame Queens Pageant. This major accomplish can only be owed to my campus. Although we were not able to afford to provide a bus for the students, they were very supportive watching the live stream. By the end of my reign I aim to have a plethora of memorable contributions because I owe it to my campus to be the best me I can be.
