So incredibly grateful to have competed in the Woman of Achievement 2016 Pageant on the Queen Mary in Long Beach and truly honored to be crowned Miss. Southern California 2016! :)
My good friend Loren West initially nominated me to join this pageant and I had never done one before. It sounded like a lot of fun and Miss. Congeniality was one of my all time favorite movies, so I thought - why not?!
What I love about this pageant is how it's not a beauty pageant rather it's a pageant that emphasizes woman who are active with community platforms, education and/or visual or performing arts. It's an achievement pageant!
They judged on us the following sections:
- 25% Personal Interview
- 25% Platform Interview [My platform was about Women Entrepreneurs]
- 20% Talent/Speech [I play a piano piece!]
- 15% Evening Gown
- 15% Fitness/Swim
It was an incredible experience to represent my city as Miss. Brentwood. I met some awesome ladies, shared unforgettable memories ... and Summer 2017, I get to compete for Nationals in Florida!
