Dear Miss Amazing participant, 

I am thrilled to welcome you to Nebraska Miss Amazing! The act of choosing to participate in Miss Amazing is such a commendable and exciting adventure, and I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!

In 2009, I was fortunate to begin my journey with Miss Amazing when I volunteered as a Buddy. After my first time volunteering, I hopped on a ride that would go from being a buddy to serving as your Director. My journey with Miss Amazing has been truly amazing, primarily because of the hundreds of others that have chosen to being their own voices to the mission. Over the last few years, I've been elated to join forces with inspiring girls, boys, women and men to bring much-needed conversations about the worth of all people, regardless of gender or ability.

However, to me, where we've been pales in comparison to where we're going. Miss Amazing, the movement created by all of us, has already begun transforming communities into more empowering places for all. Together, we are well on our way to opening doors of opportunity for even more girls and women.

By participating in Nebraska Miss Amazing, you are becoming an intrinsic member of the Miss Amazing family. You are playing an important role in the overall trajectory of the Miss Amazing mission. Thank you for being fearless. Thank you for believing in your uniqueness and insisting that others do the same. Thank you for striving to be Miss Amazing every day. You inspire me to do the same.

I've never been more excited for a Miss Amazing event as I am for Nebraska Miss Amazing 2017-2018. We have utilized years of experience and the many resources available in Omaha to make this year's national event the most impressive manifestation of the Miss Amazing mission to date. I can hardly wait to greet you in November with a smile and a hug!

Sincerely, 

Alyssa Clark

State Director
