Hi my name is Torianne Mellon and after two years of working hard for this title on the weekend I finally cam home with the Junior Teen Miss Paragon International crown!! I couldn't be more proud of myself. I started pageants because I wanted to experience something new, something more challenging and that not many others of my friends. I had recently began modelling and heard about the life changing experiences and opportunities you get through competing in pageants and thought it sounded perfect for what I wanted to do. I also wanted to meet more people and that is now an understatement because I have not only met so many empowering and incredible individuals but also made friends for life and got pageant sisters that I am so grateful to have by my side through everything.
