GRAND FORKS - Attitude is everything, says Miss North Dakota USA Kelsey Erickson, a UND student who is preparing for the 58th annual Miss USA competition April 19 in Las Vegas.


"Keeping a positive attitude is the most important thing you can do, especially in difficult situations, and learning to stand up for yourself and what you believe in," said Erickson, who grew up in Grafton, N.D. "If you have a positive attitude on things, it influences other people as well."
