One Girl's Miss America Journey

A Miss America Wannabe

Alyssa Crum

I'm a local Miss Minnesota candidate with a big dream. 

I saw an ad in the paper that read, "Pageant Contestants Wanted," and on a whim, I called the listed number.


I happened to win that pageant without having a clue what I was doing or what this organization would soon mean to me. It's been history ever since.
