The Miss Universe organization contacted me a couple of weeks ago and asked if I would like to interview Miss Nebraska, Lex Najarian. I initially balked. My thought being “We are a sports site, mostly”, why would someone be contacting me about this interview?
They were insistent to the point I reconsidered. It IS the off-season. I encourage my writers to engage in non-sports topics and write about what they’re interested in, so why not this? I decided to do the interview and I am glad I did. I expected to speak to a young lady who would talk about pageants, stage appearances, or focus on her experience of being crowned Miss Nebraska.
That’s not what I got.
What I got was a young woman who has a pretty clear focus on where she’s going in life…
