Newly crowned Miss Texas Madison Fuller is a ball of energy. Smart, beautiful and talented, she will compete for the Miss America title, yet first she catches up with our Lance Avery Morgan to reveal her favorite things.

My social platform is… Sock It To Cancer that’s all about joy. When visiting pediatric cancer patients, I use ventriloquism to brighten the days of children by introducing them to my puppets: Leo the Lion, Frisco the Frog, and Marty the Dog.

My perfect day would begin… with a Gossip Girl style breakfast spread, a good cup of coffee, and a patio with sunshine and my PJs.

How I made my first dollar… was teaching gymnastics in an elementary school cafeteria.

Last thing I binge/marathon watched… was The Crown on Netflix because I’m obsessed with the history of the English royalty and the women who have worn the crown.

A book that left a lasting impression on me… I loved Shonda Rhimes’ Year of Yes. The idea of approaching life’s endeavors with a “yes” mentality to be open, try new things and step outside of your comfort zone is definitely something I’ll strive to do this year as Miss Texas.

First album I bought… was Hilary Duff, I’m pretty sure.

On my bucket list to do soon… will be checking off my number one item by competing on the Miss America stage in September. Next on the list is to meet my favorite artist of all time, Keith Urban.

If I could live in a foreign country it would be… New Zealand. Not only is it beautiful, but also is known for its friendly population.

What every woman should try in her lifetime is… living alone, even if for just a short period of time. It’s important to love your own company first and also edible cookie dough.

If I could compete in an Olympic sport it would be… swimming. I have zero athletic skills, but admire and respect the determination of the Olympic swimmers.

The beauty essential you have to pry out of my cold dry hand is… moisturizer and Chapstick. Skin care is so important to me.

Celebrity I would prank phone call… would be Matthew McConaughey. I would just ask him questions over and over again to hear his voice.

My style icon is… Mandy Moore. Her style is everything and I feel especially connected to her as a fellow tall girl.

My perfect day would end… with Tex-Mex for dinner and then friends over for a movie night with an action-packed movie and popcorn.
