One-piece enough for Miss Idaho: Kylie Kofoed, Miss Idaho 2010 and a 19-year-old BYU sophomore, made a choice that set her apart in the beauty pageant industry: wearing a one-piece swimsuit in the recent Miss America Pageant.
Being under the microscope, Kofoed said she wanted to emphasize to people everywhere the importance of holding fast to values and beliefs which they know to be true even in the heat of the moment.
“LDS or not, it’s not worth compromising your standards,” she said. “People will respect you for not conforming to the world. Just be yourself.”
