“So far, it has kept me really busy, but it’s nothing that I’m not accustomed to. I’ve always been involved in organizations and activities around campus, so adding more responsibilities to my schedule won’t hurt because I capable of handling it. I love being in a position to serve the student body and the university.”

Being Miss Alcorn has given Brown the ability to use her title to help others. Her initiative, Women Empowerment Wednesday, was started to bring young ladies together on campus with the purpose of showing unity and striving for success. Serving others makes Brown perfect to wear the crown.

“I enjoy being able to positively influence others around campus while creating events that involves uplifting others. Becoming Miss Alcorn has given me a platform to inspire others on campus.”

As Brown looks to the future, she plans to create more events for the student body and enforce and participate in more community service initiatives.
