Kendall Morris in her own words: "I always enjoyed watching the pageant, and I sat in the audience four times just hoping that one day I could be that girl representing the state of Texas on that stage. So it's very surreal that it's actually me -- it's actually happening -- and I'm going after that crown!"
This Saturday, January 14, 2012, fifty-three young ladies from across the country will compete for the coveted title of Miss America.
One of the contestants, Miss Texas 2011, sat down with me for a quick interview moments before leaving for the Miss America pageant. Kendall Morris, a twenty-year-old broadcast journalism major at Texas Christian University discussed her journey to capture the title of Miss Texas, her father's impact on her platform, and yes...the last thing that exploded in her microwave
Be sure to watch Kendall and the rest of the Miss America contestants live from Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas on ABC at 9pm EST this Saturday!
