Hello everyone, I’m your reigning 2014-2015 Jr pre-teen queen Yanelly Quiros. I can’t believe that this year has passed in a blink of an eye. When I heard my name called as the next jr pre-teen queen I was in complete shock. This past year I’ve had so much fun making appearances at our local parades with my sister queen and doing volunteer work for the organization called Hands on Orlando, sorting packages for the homeless and sending item to homeless children in Haiti.
My journey at Nationals was one of my best new experiences I’ve ever had. There were many moments that I will never forget. Since the first day I arrived I made so many new friends. Having memorable moments at Disney and Hollywood tour. I also had a beautiful Thanksgiving dinner at the Thanksgiving banquet with my family. The activities were just as fun, including the 70’s theme party. I became good friends with Miss Oregon; we actually had so much in common, and shared lots of laughs.
To my NAMily, thank you for giving me such a great experience. It’s because of NAM that I was able to break out of my shell of shyness and show who I truly am. I want to give a special thank you to my Mom, Dad, Grandmother, and Grandfather. You are the four people in my life who believed in me and always support me in everything I do. I love you all to the moon and back. Finally to my successor this next year is going to be an amazing experience that you will never forget. Take in and enjoy every moment that comes your way. Remember believing in yourself is the first secret to success. I am your 2014 jr pre-teen queen Yanelly Quiros.
It has been an incredible year for me my dream came true I was crowned miss Florida Jr. Preteen queen. I will never forget that moment when they were about to call the queen they had one spot left and I was shaking, all of the sudden they say your new queen is Danielle Cohn. My dream had finally came true, it was my 3rd year I went from 4th runner up to 2nd runner up to queen. I never gave up I came back every year more prepared. Being crowned Miss Florida was a dream come true. I gain a crown and I became a titleholder for my State. I have served my community and became a role model for other young girls. Best part was using my title to help out the children miracle hospital by making teddy bears and bringing them gifts on the holidays.
Then it was time for nationals in Anaheim California were I had the time of my life. I meet so many amazing queens from other states that I have gained amazing friendships with. I was able to go to Disneyland and walk the streets of Hollywood it was an amazing trip. I was able to enjoy my time with my family and also getting to know my sister queens.
The best part of being a queen was meeting my sister’s queens; we have all become so close. We go to events together and I know I can always count on them when I need them. Our bond and sisterhood has grown so much and we love each other so much.
My mom had always told me never to give up keep fighting for what you want. I learned to become confident with NAM and I want all other girls to know that they should never give up on your dream keeping trying and never give up. You can do anything you set your mind too.
I want to send a huge thank you to National American Miss for this amazing opportunity. You have helped me grow and learned a lot. I have gain public speaking skills and took a lot from this pageant. Thank you to all the directors. Thank you to my mother who has been my biggest supporter and never letting me give up. Thank you to my amazing brother who has been my escort for the past three years this couldn’t have been possible with out you. My grandma Linda thank you for everything you have done and always being there. Also thank you to my friend Riley and his amazing mom and dad for supporting me I knew I could always count on them.
Finally, to my successor, make the most of your time take lots of pictures, and have lots of fun. Make your state proud and have fun with your sisters queens you will gain a bond like no other. Remember you are all smart and beautiful. Be confident and never give up. One thing I can tell you is to always smile and be happy.
I am your 2014 Miss Florida Jr. Preteen Danielle Haleigh Cohn
My year as the 2014 Miss Florida Pre-Teen has been such a blessing. Right after crowning moment I was honored to go out and put my title to work by making appearances in my community and volunteer with various organizations such as: Ronald Mc Donald, Heart 2 Heart Organization, Hunger relief Program and many more.
During my reign as Miss Florida Pre-Teen, numerous opportunities were presented to me. I was able to participate in Christmas Parades, and was able to donate over 300 gifts to underprivileged children. Having the opportunity to give back in my community and make a difference in the lives of others has been such a blessing. My journey with NAM started as a shine princess contestant and now I can say I’m a confident young lady with poise and people skills.
Nationals in California were more than I could ever wish for. I met so many amazing young ladies and made so many friends from all across the country. I want to thank the entire NAM family for developing an organization that transforms lives and inspires thousands of girls all over the Nation each year.
I’m honored and proud to say I’m your 2014 National American Miss Florida Pre-Teen Queen. Briana Florexil
I’ve had an amazing year as your 2014 Miss Ohio Princess Queen. It was my 3rd year participating in NAM, and I guess you could say 3rd time’s the charm! I was crowned on July 19th, one day before my birthday (I got my birthday wish!). Since being crowned, I have been able to participate in so many different activities and make all kinds of new friends.
I attended Nationals in Anaheim, California, had a great week there with my family and new friends, and I even placed top 10 in the country! Disneyland was so much fun and I got to meet many of my favorite Disney characters. And while at Nationals I got to meet top 5 American Idol, Rayvon Owen! He was the entertainer at Nationals and sang to the top 10 while on stage. It is a week that I will always remember!
I’ve also been able to represent National American Miss by participating in many volunteer opportunities. During Bike Night at 250 Speedway in Cadiz, Ohio I gave away donated bicycles to children in attendance with my sister queen Rylynn. I helped collect donations at the Wishathon for Wishes Can Happen, an organization that grants wishes to terminally ill children. I participated in the Walk For Babies, raising money for the Akron Children’s Hospital NICU. I helped with registration and ran in the 5K Kenzie & Kids Family Fun Run, raising money for the YMCA and a local child. I spent a day reading to and painting nails with residents at a local nursing home. And I helped set out American flags at the VFW for Memorial Day.
I have become really great friends with some of my sister queens. All of my sister queens and I represented National American Miss at the Circleville Pumpkin Festival & Parade. I had the opportunity to ride in the Navarre Holiday Parade with our mayor. We also had a photo shoot and afterwards we had a sleepover and had a lot of fun. I was also able to ride in the Navarre Memorial Day parade with my sister queens Zoey and Brooke, and the Brewster Fireman’s Festival Parade with Brooke. I had a lot of fun helping out at many of the open calls and training sessions with some of my sister queens.
My sister queen Brooke and I have gotten very close. I went to a University of Akron football game to watch her cheer; and she also came to a midget football game to watch me cheer. I’ve had the chance to get close with Zoey as well by hanging out at open calls and training sessions and riding in parades together. National American Miss has helped me make great, lifelong friends like my “twin” Madison who made second runner up in my Queen’s Court and we got to see each other a lot while in California at Nationals and have gotten together a few times within the past year.
Being a part of National American Miss has done so much for me. It has taken me across the country to California, to Disneyland, “the world of imagination, hopes and dreams”. It has helped me grow my confidence by leaps and bounds. It has introduced some of the most amazing girls in the world to me. And most of all, National American Miss has helped encourage me to chase my dreams and believe in myself; and I look forward to continuing on with NAM. To my successor, cherish every moment because the year will pass quickly. And to anybody else reading this, believe in yourself and follow your dreams! As Walt Disney said, “Believe in your dreams, no matter how impossible they seem”.
Forever yours, your 2014 Miss Ohio Princess, Kaidyn Roberts. And in the words of Arnold Schwarzenegger, “I’LL BE BACK!”.
