ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – This morning Miss New Mexico, Marissa Livingston, and Miss New Mexico Outstanding Teen, Sasha Butcher stopped by with their new crowns and their big plans for the year in front of them. They also shared with us their experience in preparing for the big event, and what it was like to receive their crowns.
Marissa will serve this year promoting her platform “For The Kids” which supports the UNM Children’s Hospital through the local Dance Marathon, LoboTHON, at the University of New Mexico. This will require a lot of volunteering on Marissa’s part over the next year. Sasha will be promoting her platform “Uniquely You” which is to encourage young kids and teens to be confident in their own skin. She will utilize social media to great lengths to help promote this.
Sasha will compete for the title of Miss America Outstanding Teen in Orlando, FL. on August 1. Marissa will compete for the title of Miss America in September in Atlantic City, NJ.
