For the first time, a Florida woman will represent the United States in the Miss Earth pageant.
"You just have to have the desire to make your planet better or make your community better," Kelley said.
She has a bachelor’s degree in Food and Resource Economics. She used what she learned to get the Miss Earth Florida crown. Two weeks after winning that crown, she beat out all the other states and earned the title of Miss Earth United States.
"I have to go into a pageant wanting to win, but being OK walking away without the crown and getting the experience," Kelley said.
She is also prepared to answer any questions that come her way.
When Kelley's finished traveling the world vying for the Miss Earth title, she wants to become an international agriculture contractor and put everything she has learned to good use.
