America's Miss History

I was standing on stage at the America's Touch of Class National Pageant and I was crowned Miss America's Touch of Class 2009. The competition went to fast I felt like I blinked my eyes and it was over... As I was waiting to find out the results I kept saying Please say my name over and over in my head!! They announced the teen winner and I was so happy because I loved the girl that won!! Then they called the Miss division forward... My dear friend got 2nd runner up and I was thrilled for her!! I was waiting to hear who had won 1st runner up and when they called Indiana's name my stomach dropped!! I thought I was the 1st runner up...

As we waited to the winner to be announced the only thing I could think about was how bad I wanted this and how life changing winning a title like this could be.. Then the moment came... The New Miss America's Touch of Class 2009 is.......... Krisann Binetti I truly didn't even know how to react...

I actually turned around on stage, I was thrilled... My eyes started to fill up with tears and I actually took a deep breath because I swear I didn't breathe the whole time they were announcing the results!! I just remember giving Becky the Miss from 2008 the biggest hug... I was shaking from head to toe and when the crown was finally placed on my head it felt real!! I had won and I knew it would be a moment I would cherish and remember for the rest of my life!!!
