Aurelia Gooden is Ms Michigan American Dream 2017!

I am newly in awe of participating in pageants.  I used to watch pageants all of the time as a child, but due to my socioeconomic and financial background, I never thought that I would be fortunate enough to be a contestant.  However, that changed later in my life.

I broke many barriers as my life progressed.  I taught myself to play the piano as a child by the grace of God, which allowed me to later earn two degrees in classical music.  I graduated high school a year early as the valedictorian when I didn't even own a computer to complete assignments.  I was a Presidential Scholar at Wayne State University and a Summa Cum Laude graduate of Jacksonville State University, where I received the prestigious Phi Beta Kappa award for academic achievement.  I also completed a Master of Science degree in Manufacturing Systems.

I am currently a Ph.D. student in Psychology, a manufacturing engineer, and a classical pianist and composer.  I am Ms. Detroit Corporate America 2017 and I enjoyed competing in my first pageant - the Ms. Corporate America pageant.  I am now also Ms. Michigan American Dream 2017 and I will compete for the national title of Ms. American Dream this summer.
