I am Camryn Baddley! I am 16 years old and a junior in high school. My extracurricular activities include cheerleading, dance, pageants, and spending time with family and friends. I have been a member of the high school dance team for 4 years and I became a member of the cheerleading squad this year! All of my life I have wanted to become a veterinarian. When I graduate from high school I plan to enter the pre-vet program at Mississippi State and eventually the Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine program. I chose the platform of “Animal Rescue” because I felt that it best suited me since I would like to own my own business and take care of animals later in life. This is my first year competing in the Miss Mississippi Outstanding Teen pageant. This has been a big dream of mine ever since I was a little girl. It’s such an amazing opportunity to be able to compete with so many amazing talented girls and to make so many new friends.
I plan to come to the pageant with a positive and encouraging attitude and just do my very best with everything that I possibly can.
My platform is “Celebrating Animal Rescue” and I chose this platform because of my passion for animals and keeping them safe. I would like to one day become a veterinarian and own my own vet clinic but until that can happen I plan to volunteer at as many shelters as I can and help with all the rescue teams and shelters as possible. I also want to be able to teach young children the responsibilities that come with taking care of animals that have been adopted or rescued of any type. I have talked to an elementary school grade about all the ways to rescue an animal and all of the responsibilities that come with the role of this platform. My passion for animals will continue to grow and I plan to have many more people feel the same way as I do about my platform. I also plan to do a donation box at my school for people to donate animal products to be given to the shelter in Starkville, MS.
