Beginning pageantry at the age of 15, I never thought it would change my life the way it did. Going from shy and scared to speak up, I am now fearless and outgoing. Growing up watching Miss Teen USA and Miss USA on TV, I never thought much of it. Finally, at the age of 7 while watching Miss Teen USA 2007 on TV, I decided that I would do that one day. Over a decade later, I can say I have competed in 13 pageants and counting, won titles, been runner up to many titles and judged almost just as many. People refer to me as "the pageant guru", you can ask me almost anything about pageants and I can give you the answer. Did you know that the winner of Miss Teen USA used to go onto compete at Miss USA? Or that Montana hasn't placed at Miss USA in over 50 years? Or that Miss Iowa 1970 was the FIRST African-American to compete at Miss America? Well I do, pageantry isn't just a hobby for me. I genuinely care and love learning about the history of it. I am dedicated to this in more ways than one!
I began sharing my love for pageantry through my instagram @RoadToMissTexasUSA, I loved getting to know all the girls who worked hard to compete for and win that title! I cared about keeping everyone "in the loop" of the journey, not just mine, but all the girls! I think its so much easier to genuinely be happy for a girl who wins, when you see how hard she worked and what she did to get there, not just what you see on stage that day and that was the goal for my page! It eventually expanded into a website, www.RoadToMissTexasUSA.com where I could further blog about my pageant thoughts.
As time went on, contestants in different pageant systems would come to me for help, advice, decision-making, coaching, and all kinds of "prep" for their upcoming competitions. Not until Fall of 2019 did I decide to actually label myself as a "coach", and to be honest I never like calling contestants my "clients" because I invest myself just as much as you do for your pageant! I really do care about how you're doing and feeling, what else you're doing to prepare, and just keeping up with you during pageant weekend to make sure all is well!
