Honey Princess

My name is Nicole Medina, and I am the 2019 American Honey Princess. I am from New Jersey, and I am a sophomore at Sussex County Community College studying business administration. I have been keeping bees for five years with my family, and I'm an active volunteer in the Sussex County Beekeepers Association. In my spare time, I enjoy reading, writing, volunteering with my church, and spending time with my loved ones.
As the 2019 American Honey Princess, I travel across the country to teach students, 4-H groups, and fair-goers about the importance of honeybees and pollination in our everyday lives. I also attend many different events such as fairs, festivals, and farmers markets and have interviews with tv, radio, and newspapers. To find out if the American Honey Queen or Princess can visit your school or community, please visit the American Beekeeping Federation website. You can ask me a question on the Questions tab of the blog or email me at buzzingacrossamerica@gmail.com.
