Miss Minnesota says,

“Only you define yourself and your creative ambitions. Embrace every side to your personality while never feeling afraid to fail. When we fail, it builds us to become a stronger person. Failure is the growth of success. It means you embody the will to improve. When you learn to accept yourself, how your talents serve others, and carry nonstop determination… you will achieve things beyond anything you’ve imagined. It takes grit, passion, a sprinkle of creativity, and a lot of dedication. Accepting all of who you are will allow you to become the best version of yourself.” -Ms. Latuff/Miss Minnesota 2015
