MACON, Ga. (WGXA) -- "It just comes down to resilience," says Miss Georgia Kelsey Hollis as she visited Northeast High to speak to the students. "This journey for me has been one of figuring out myself and figuring out my passions and things I want to accomplish."
The Warner Robins Native and HCHS graduate spoke with Northeast students about what drove her to keep chasing her dreams and hopes that they took something away from what she had to say.
"That wouldn't have been possible if I didn't have the drive in me and determination to understand that I want to achieve is possible, especially if it's in God's will," she added. "I know that's the message I really needed when I was their age."
Hollis was named Miss Georgia's Outstanding Teen in 2016 prior to being crowned Miss Capital City and, then, Miss Georgia in 2022.
