— Miss America 1987 —
"My main objective would be to be an excellent public servant for the pageant, which is something I believe in so strongly. The pageant is about being an all-around girl. You just can't be good in talent. I worked hard in all areas and I think it paid off." 1 "I just want to be the best Miss America, you know, the girl next door. And the girl next door who isn't controversial."2
