There’s much more to being a “pageant queen” than posing, smiling pretty, and saying all the “right” things. So today, I am here to tell you more about your Miss North Dakota International queen of 2016—Taylor Woodruff.
I have grown up in the town of Devils Lake, ND where I spent most my life on a small farm. During grades 9-12 I attended a Christian affiliated boarding school out of Bismarck, ND where I developed my love for volunteering. I am now a sophomore in college finishing my Associates of Liberal Arts to be continued with a Bachelors degree in Animal Science and a minor in Equine.
As queen, I travel North Dakota promoting The American Heart Association and my personal platform of Volunteerism. However, while I am not in school or doing pageant things, I enjoy making coffee (I love coffee), reading my devotional, shopping, working out, traveling, and just being with friends. I also love getting outside to do things such as, figure skating, horseback riding, winter skiing, fishing, and hiking.
I hope that if you’re reading this passage right now, that you continue to follow my blog and reign—learning more about my journey and building stronger communities through volunteering. It really is an incredible honor and blessing to be representing the beautiful state of North Dakota and its people. I can’t wait to see what this year has to hold for me and for nationals this July in Jacksonville, FL. So now, let’s get to work and make this an awesome year!
