SALISBURY, NC (WBTV) - We've been keeping up with the adventures of Miss United States over the last few weeks. Elizabeth Safrit is from Kannapolis, and is now in London with her family for the Miss World competition.
Elizabeth is the daughter of Lynne and Walter Safrit of Kannapolis.
We asked Elizabeth if she would mind sending a little note to the folks back home, and she graciously agreed, providing several pictures and a personal note written late Thursday night, London time.
We hope you enjoy her words and pictures, and like us, you're wishing her all the best in the competition!
Greetings from London! I am so excited to be here representing not only the best country in the world – but also my home state of North Carolina! I have been working hard these last few months preparing for this competition, and it has been one of the most unique and rewarding experiences of my life.
