Allie Richardson, 17, of Lexington was recently named Miss South Carolina Teen USA 2019. She was born in North Charleston, where her mother is also a graduate of North Charleston High School. Allie is a senior at Lexington High School where she serves as the Student Body Vice President and a National Honor Society Chapter Officer. Allie is right in the middle of 2 brothers- Drew, 19, and Bryce, 15. Allie has been involved in pageants since she was young and she feels that pageants, along with her deep-rooted faith, have played a huge role in developing the confidence, poise, and strong sense of self that she has today. She is excited to not only represent South Carolina at Miss Teen USA in the spring, but to raise awareness for a cause that is dear to her heart: depression awareness. She participated in the Society Fashion Week- Greenville Fashion Week Kickoff event and had a blast with her friends modeling. Allie is looking forward to spending her year serving her state and volunteering in various communities and organizations. She has already had some amazing appearances this year such as serving as the MC for a local high school pageant. She will go on to compete in Miss Teen USA 2019!
