Take a Look at The 2011 National American Miss Texas

I have been blessed to be part of the National American Miss organization since its beginning. My first pageant experience began with Steve and Kathleen Mayes at the age of eight.

It has Been a Great Year and a Top 10 Finish for The 2011 National American Miss North Texas Pre-Teen

Dear Contestants,
God is great, and this past year has been great. I was honored when my name was called as your new Miss Texas Pre Teen.
I have so much to be thankful for- my family, friends and National American Miss Pageants.I almost missed the state pageant; newly diagnosed with a rare condition of bone tumors and facing the possibility of cancer, facial disfigurement or paralysis, it took a lot of convincing for my mother to agree. Once there my mom telling me, “Gabriela have fun, enjoy yourself, make the most of today”.

With a successful surgery and only two inches of my jaw removed, I was proud to represent Texas at the National Pageant in Anaheim, California.Nationals in California was wonderful, I was able to make new friends and reunited with previous friends.
Thank you God and for making my dreams come true and to everyone who made this year so special. I enjoyed every public appearance and being able to volunteer my time to so many worthy community projects.
Best wishes and go…
