Be Kind. Be Courageous. Be You. became Mallory’s mantra during her reign as Miss America 2013 and continues to be her philosophy on life today. Through her participation in the Miss America Organization, she found her passion in advocacy, most specifically for education in regard to Child Sexual Abuse. In addition to child abuse, Mallory has become a voice for confidence, self-acceptance and body-image, as well. In an effort to share her story, Mallory has been featured on national television shows such as Good Morning America!, The View, Wendy Williams and Anderson Cooper, as well as hundreds of local news sources.
Now, Mallory continues to work with several national and local organizations such as Safe Horizon, Prevent Child Abuse America and is one of the Nationals Spokeswomen for the World Be Free Campaign. In NYC, Mallory volunteers with several other service organizations such as City Chicks 4 Charity, No Kid Hungry and God’s Love We Deliver.
While serving as Miss America, Mallory was recognized as an Influential Woman at the 2013 Forbe’s Women’s Summit. Today, being the only student in the history of the Fashion Institute of Technology to receive the Presidential Award while enrolled, Mallory continues her education utilizing her Miss America Scholarship while continuing to pursue opportunities to influence others through media platforms.
