Like so many Miss America contestants, Miss New Mexico Alexis Duprey lived her platform.  Called "The Power of One" and focusing on the unique challenges single-parent families face, Duprey said when she talks with children, she often quotes one of The Junkies' favorite movies, "Mrs. Doubtfire"...

"There are all sorts of different families. Some families have one mommy, some families have one daddy, or two families. And some children live with their uncle or aunt. Some live with their grandparents, and some children live with foster parents. And some live in separate homes, in separate neighborhoods, in different areas of the country. And they may not see each other for days, or weeks, months -- even years -- at a time. But if there's love, dear, those are the ties that bind, and you'll have a family in your heart, forever."

Alexis certainly made her mark at Miss America - coming home with the coveted non-finalist interview award.  Since September, she's been extremely busy with different appearances around the state and will be finishing her masters degree in communications from New Mexico State University.  Junkies wish Alexis all the best in whatever the future holds for her!
