Wow! What a busy yet AMAZING semester it has been! I am so excited to be competing in the Miss Mississippi pageant this summer in Vicksburg as Miss Parade of Beauties 2017! A spot opened up in the pageant, and after lots of prayer and thought, I decided to take advantage of this incredible opportunity and compete. The pageant is June 21-24th. I am contestant #38 in Group C, so I will be competing in evening gown on Wednesday, swimsuit on Thursday and talent on Friday, and a new Miss Mississippi will be crowned that Saturday night! I cannot wait for this opportunity to promote my platform, STEM: A Blueprint for Problem Solving, as well as the Children’s Miracle Network. Stay tuned for updates on my year as I visit schools and attend philanthropic events in the months to come!
