I started in pageantry after receiving an invitation letter by mail. My mom was intending to throw the letter away. Luckily, I found it before it made its way to the trash! After much begging, she agreed to let me try it out. Surprisingly, I placed top ten in my age division, and I was hooked. That was almost five years ago. Since then, I have held numerous local, state, and national titles, and I am now the 2017 Pure International Pageants Pure International Teen! I have modeled in many different cities, including New York and Chicago, and I have completed thousands of hours of community service. There is no doubt that pageantry has changed my life, and I hope I can change the lives of others, in return.
