Finalist National American Miss 2016
Organized by: Renee Parker
Hello my name is Autumn Parker As some of you know I did not place in 2015. Yes I am a loser lol but I take that name like a champ because you don't have to win to be a great person or to get a crown to be so either. Its about whats in your heart. When they told the girl to leave the stage the girl next to me was crying an so was I I will tell yu why here in a sec. I told her its ok we don't need a title to be special or beautiful we all already are. Them she looked at me an said yur crying to lol I said yes because now I don't get a chance to get my dads house back from the bank. After that we all went to the dressing room I was balling but this time I had like 3 girls come give me hugs. Then my mom comes in an I was not trying to let her see me cry at all cuz I wanted her to think I was ok. She started crying which made me cry. Mom took pictures lol worst time to be crying. When we did our formal wear competition I saw all these girls with their dad walking them on stage an I had someone else's dad walk me on there (which was the coolest guy ever I thank him so much!) but this one girl that was a couple of girls in front of me stood out to me because she looked like how me an my dad would of been. He bent down an gave her a kiss on her head an told her how much he was proud of her an loved her. It took everything in my body not to cry before going on. I know he is very proud of what I did but its must heart breaking he's not here with me. I met new friends an that's all that matters yeah the crown would be nice but I got everything she got even more I have a heart an a good one.But I am raising money for next years NAM (National American Miss 2016 MISS OHIO to compete again.
