She is a national spokesperson and advocate who travels the country addressing diverse audiences, increasing awareness and promoting her chosen platform as well as the Children’s Miracle Network. She is an active part of the California community, with an aptitude to engage with various organizations and causes. Her interests afford her the opportunity to attend, host, and present at events throughout the state.

This year’s Miss California

The 91st Miss California is Bree Morse, a 23-year-old Orange County, California native. Morse is a graduate of California State University, Long Beach with her bachelor’s degree in Business Marketing, and has developed experience in business communications, public relations, and social media management. In the months since her crowning in June of 2015, she has embarked on a number of appearances representing both the Miss California Organization, and the respective appearance organizations with graceful professionalism. In September she competed for the title of Miss America, and although she did not come home with the crown, was a beautiful representative of our state.

Throughout the duration of her year she will continue to be an advocate for her platform, “Alopecia Areata Advocacy,” Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals, and an ambassador for a number of the organization’s sponsors. As a result of her own experience with alopecia areata, she speaks on behalf of those living with silent diseases, and others struggling to accept their physical differences. Morse is a certified substitute teacher in Southern California and sees the immense value of Miss California’s scholastic emphasis. With the scholarship she has earned, she will return to school after her year of service to obtain a single-subject credential in English. Learn more about Bree at MissCalifornia.org/BreeMorse.

Show Some Love on Valentine’s Day

Before I get into the real reason for this blog, I just wanted to introduce myself and say thanks for stopping by our page! My name is Bree Morse and in January I was fortunate enough to be crowned Miss Orange Coast 2015. I’m excited for the year that lies ahead of me and to have the opportunity to share my experiences with you (you can follow me on Instagram at @missorangecoast)!

Valentine’s Day is soon approaching, and whether or not you have that “special someone,” there is probably a part of you screaming “Great. What do I do now?” Most likely, there’s also part of you hoping that an admirer will send you a special delivery of a 5lb box of See’s Candy. At least I’m guilty of both of these thoughts. In all actuality, Valentine’s Day was not always associated with secret admirers, flying babies with a bow and arrow, and excessive amounts of confectionery hearts. Originally a religious holiday, it wasn’t until the 1300’s that the holiday became associated with romance. In the 1840’s, along came mass produced Valentine’s Day cards that would soon establish February 14th as a prominent consumer holiday. I can’t imagine that they had the One Direction valentines at that time, but the tradition of letting someone know that you care about them has carried on ever since.

Don't forget your favorite Valentine-themed clothes!

Don’t forget your favorite Valentine-themed clothes!

For as long as I can remember, Valentine’s Day has been one of my favorite holidays of the year. Every February 14th my sister and I would wake up even earlier just to have our mom French braid a heart into the back of our heads as we wrote out valentines to our classmates (One year I had Lisa Frank cards with matching pencils. At that point I thought for sure my life was made). After leaving the house with the perfect hair-do, it was off to school to pass out your notes of admiration then to see what you received in return. There was nothing better than the feeling of untying the yarn holding closed your craft-time mailbox to see kindness and compassion of your peers spill out onto your desk (the candy and pencils weren’t bad, either).

To this day, I cannot overstate the importance of making the holiday special for those you care about. My mom doesn’t French braid my hair in the mornings, but on that day I still find every single heart-adorned accessory and clothing item that I own to show my love for Valentine’s Day. So this year, regardless if you’ll be going to a fancy dinner with your Valentine or if your special someone is your cat (let’s face it, my cat Stanley is quite a catch), challenge yourself to go out of your way to let someone know that you care about them. It’s a kind gesture as simple as telling someone they look nice, that they made you smile the other day, or even giving them that prized Lisa Frank pencil. Although the 5 lb box of candy will definitely not be turned down, it’s the essence of Valentine’s Day that makes it so special – to love, and be loved. Who could pass that opportunity up?!

All my best,
Bree Morse
