How has the world you come from shaped your dreams and aspirations? The importance of responsibility and a hard day’s work were impressed upon me since childhood. Caring for livestock taught me that their needs should always be placed above my own, just as the needs of others are more pertinent than mine. It was impressed upon me that I was very fortunate to have been born an American. I have a responsibility to be a good and decent person and accomplish much with my life. Being surrounded by inspiring people has made me want to be a person who makes others want to be better. I have a duty to the people that love me, to my country, and to those who have less than I do. My family always encouraged me to fly free, think free and live my life to the fullest. Everything I am, my dreams and aspirations, are a result of where I come from.
Of all the ways you could succeed in life, why have you chosen to succeed in the Miss America Pageant? Miss America symbolizes a career driven woman of poise and integrity, with a desire to transform the world around her. She is a guidepost and a model for many young people. Along with my dietetics degree I plan to minor in Leadership Communication because it is important to me that my voice be heard. The Miss America Organization is one more way I can facilitate steps to improve the lives of those in my state while achieving my personal goal of receiving a good education. I am so grateful to be a part of an organization that coincides with my passions and beliefs so firmly.
What social issue, other than your platform will have the greatest impact on your generation and why? Innovative technology to combat America’s resource reliance along with recent happenings in the oil industry make a clear statement that energy efficiency is one of the most pressing if not the pinnacle issue to come to terms with today. Our nation consumes more a quarter of the world’s oil. In the next few years I anticipate efforts to go green will affect Americans in everything from job security to daily life task such as lighting in homes. It is no wonder the Miss America Organization along with celebrities such as Steve Nash, and politicians like Al Gore, have taken it upon themselves to reduce America’s carbon footprint and help guide our nation into a safer, more efficient environment.

Tawnie Goodwin's Working Platform:

Food Fighting: Small Steps Climb Mountains

Two-thirds of the American population is overweight or obese. Oklahoma itself ranks sixth in national obesity statistics. This problem is so serious that First Lady Michelle Obama chose to confront the issue head on with her Let’s Move campaign. Many consider obesity to be our nation’s greatest health issue ever.
Food Fighting: Small Steps Climb Mountains is my personal project intended to focus on the general health and well-being of Americans. I want to provide all Oklahomans with the tools to make healthy lifestyle choices, specifically by encouraging them to make small changes in their eating habits. These incremental changes will eventually lead Oklahomans to achieving their long-term goals of a healthy lifestyle.
The best way to promote a healthy lifestyle agenda is to lead by example. I am a member of the Food, Nutrition, and Dietetics Club, an organization that reaches out to help students make sensible and healthful lifestyle choices. As a freshman I brought the Blood: Water Mission to Northeastern State University. Blood: Water Mission is an organization which raises money to help fight AIDS and poor sanitation. Our group gained revenue by encouraging students and adults alike to give up soda pop for two weeks and, in its place, substitute water. I organized numerous events of all types and, with the help of my fellow students, raised over $1,700 to date. This venture helped supply our friends in Africa with clean drinking water and better sanitation.
The youth of Oklahoma encompass the majority of my focus. I strongly believe that children are our future and in order to ensure their success—our success as a nation—we must give them the tools to lead healthful lives. As Miss Northeastern State University it has been my priority to inform children about proper nutrition and the effect negative nutrition is leaving upon the American society. I have spoken to hundreds of students at five different school systems; however, I am not finished promoting my passion. I want to continue my public speaking activities.
Being Miss Collinsville would give me far greater networking power to fulfill my goals and would allocate means for me to promote my platform to a broader spectrum of audiences. Additionally, the Miss America Organization is the perfect one to promote this platform. The young women who compete are clearly the best and the brightest. They are all very good examples of healthy lifestyle choices.
I realize that combating our nation’s nutrition deficit is not a particularly glamorous or catchy platform, but we are blessed to live in the greatest country on earth and with that blessing comes responsibility. It is vitally important that we strive for and value healthy minds and bodies. Millions of people throughout the world depend on us. We must be strong of mind and body ourselves, before we can hope to improve the quality of life of others.
