Miss. Southern California 2016

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! :) 

Our opening number! 

Loren West & I both won our categories! 

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!
