Bryant Woods Elementary School

I had the opportunity to speak to the 5th grade girls at Bryant Woods Elementary School and how rewarding it was. You would think the best part about being a titleholder is all the glamour, however, the best part is seeing the impact you have on others. 






Miss Maryland United States 2013 Crowns Miss Baltimore United States 2014

I returned to my hometown Baltimore to crown the last preliminary titleholder competing to be my successor. Ironically, just like last time, a good friend of mine won! Amanda Ross is her name, and she's a Baltimore Ravens Cheerleader! What a wonderful moment this was!

Nationals - Miss United States 2013

I am so very sorry to have been late on updates! However, I promise to be active blogging again! The Miss United States Pageant was a week to remember. I met beautiful and intelligent women from all over the country and not to mention, I learned A LOT about myself.

I did not win Miss United States, however, one of my best girlfriends, CANDICE DILLARD, MISS DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA UNITES STATES DID! I couldn't be more happy for her, we hugged and we cried; she deserved it! Congratulations Candiace! I am so proud of you and I love you! :)

Thank you to everyone who has supported me in any way! I couldn't thank you guys enough! Below are are photos that I have from nationals!

Enjoy! :)
