HC USC: What are your future plans/aspirations?

HC USC: How were you chosen for Miss Golden Globes and what does the title entail?
CF: I found out that I was Miss Golden Globe in October. I actually had no clue that my name was in the mix to be Miss Golden Globe. Usually, there is an application process. For whatever reason, they decided to ask if I wanted to do it – of course, I said yes! I couldn’t tell anyone for like 3 weeks though. It was a big secret to keep and I kept avoiding all my friends so I wouldn’t spill it.
HC USC: What was the process like of preparing for the actual event?
CF: After it was announced, I had to attend a bunch of events, leading up to the Golden Globes. We had the Miss Golden Globe announcement party, the Golden Globe nomination announcements, the red carpet rollout and the blogger luncheon. I had to meet with my stylist multiple times to prepare for my dress too. I was super picky about my dress and tried on about 50, before I found the perfect one.
HC USC: What was your favorite memory of the night/process?
CF: On the night of, one of my favorite memories was looking out at the crowd and some of the most important people in Hollywood in one room. I had the best view in the house and I do not think that I will ever forget it. I had Brad Pitt on my left and Channing Tatum on my right. It was wild!
HC USC: Coolest celebrity you met?
CF: The coolest celebrity I met was probably Jennifer Lawrence. She ran off stage after she won her award and was freaking out. She was so nervous and kept asking me if her speech was okay. It was so cute and genuine!
HC USC: What does being Miss Golden Globes mean to you?
CF: Being Miss Golden Globe was an incredible honor for me. I had millions of young girls watching me and I aimed to be a role model to them. In every interview, I made sure to talk about my education and how beneficial it was to me. Hopefully, some girl somewhere heard me and now wants to go to college too!
HC USC: Has it impacted your everyday life in any way?
CF: Being Miss Golden Globe hasn’t really affected my everyday life that much. I’ve been noticed a few times since then and it’s been fun meeting people and taking pictures with them.
