The National American Miss Pageants are for 'Today's Girl and 'Tomorrow's Leaders.' The pageant program is based on inner beauty, as well as poise, presentation, and offers an 'All American Spirit' of fun for family and friends.

NAM has already inspired Alexis to do great things. She is currently working an internship with NEXT Worldwide Ministries where she has traveled this summer to Romania and Ecuador. She has also donated clothing and books to local non-profits, as well as speaking at local youth groups about sex-confidence and finding one's identity in who God made them to be.
