I competed in my first pageant the summer before my sophomore year of high school, and I have been hooked since! I began my pageant career as Miss Metro’s Outstanding Teen 2013, and was honored to be named a Top 10 finalist and the winner of the Alpha, Preliminary and Overall Lifestyle and Fitness awards at the Miss Arkansas’ Outstanding Teen 2013 pageant.

My junior year I was crowned Miss Teen Arkansas International 2014 and then Miss Teen International 2014. I spent my senior year traveling to 16 different states as I spoke to students about healthy living, anti-bullying and discovering their leadership potential.

Since being in college, I have had the amazing opportunity of representing my sorority in the Ole Miss Parade of Beauties. In 2016, I was honored to place in the Top 10, and I am so proud to say I was crowned Ole Miss Most Beautiful 2017 in February!

I had the tremendous honor of competing in the 2017 Miss Mississippi pageant as Miss Parade of Beauties this summer, and was so excited to have been named the Alpha Non-Finalist Interview winner, Preliminary Swimsuit Winner, Alpha Non-Finalist Swimsuit Winner and Mutual Credit Union Business Scholarship recipient that resulted in $2,700 in scholarship money to help fund my education as I begin my junior year at Ole Miss!

Prelim season has been so much fun, and I cannot wait to continue my journey as Miss Vicksburg 2018 as I compete in Vicksburg for the Miss Mississippi crown again next June!

I am forever grateful for the communication skills, confidence, poise, leadership development, scholarship funds and friendships that I have gained through pageantry, and I can’t wait to see what the future holds!
