Miss Missouri USA 2018 is hitting the road trying to make a difference across the state.
Tori Kruse said she hopes to inspire others as she represents Missouri. She has been visiting with students at local elementary schools, talking to them about self-confidence.
“I talked to them about self-confidence, pursuing their dreams, stepping outside their comfort zones and not letting their fear overcome them,” said Kruse.
Kruse wants to it her mission to help the children of Missouri reach their full potential.
“I’ve actually been volunteering for KidsMart, Nurses for Newborns and Sunnyhill on the special needs side of things. I really just want to speak to people and say life will give you obstacles and there are always ways to overcome them,” said Kruse.
Kruse will compete in the Miss USA Pageant in 2018.
