The 6th recently interviewed Sara Pietig, a Kansas Miss Amazing Ambassador. An ambassador is a volunteer leadership position within the state where the women of the program can go out and recruit and spread the Miss Amazing mission to the community. During here time as a representative, Sara went above and beyond in showing her leadership skills, thus earning her the opportunity to continue as an ambassador. What better way to demonstrate the mission than granting opportunities within the program. We are proud to support such a wonderful organization and are delighted to learn more about Sara’s story, why she chose to participate in the pageant, and what this opportunity means to her.
