It's Been an Awesome Year for Miss Pennsylvania Jr. Pre-Teen Cover Girl Ajae Richardson!

Wow, I can’t believe my year as your 2015 National American Miss Pennsylvania Jr. Pre-Teen Covergirl is coming to an end. It started off with a photoshoot, and many appearances with my sister queens. Serving my community and making a differences in the lives of others by participating in a host of 5K Walk/Runs, Habitat for Humanity, Cradles to Crayons, and A November to Remember.
Before I could look up, it was time for Nationals. I had so much fun seeing old friends and meeting so many new ones. After a week of competing, Disneyland, Hollywood Tour, and spending Thanksgiving with my Namily, I walked away being crowned your 2015-2016 National American Miss Jr. Pre-Teen Cover Model.
After that more volunteering, then came NAM open calls and training sessions. One last stop as visiting royalty at the NAM Florida pageant. What a year of friendship, love and service.
To my successor: “Everybody can be great, because Everybody can serve”. This year means more than wearing a crown. Inspire others, serve others and be impactful. National American Miss promotes self-confidence, and helps each girl gain poise. Use this year to spread awareness and show others what National American Miss is all about.
Thank you to everyone who has made this year amazing, my Norristown Community, the PA NAM choreographers, my wonderful directors Mrs. Sandy and Mrs. Nicole, last but not less my two lovely grandmothers, my dad and the strongest woman I know, my mommy.

For the last time I am your 2015 Miss Pennsylvania Jr Pre-Teen Cover Girl, Ajae Richardson.

Featuring Miss Pennsylvania Princess Anna Rinnier!

Dear NAMily,
Hearing my name called as your 2015 queen was like a dream come true, but never in my wildest dreams could I have imagined the year I would have ahead of me.  The highlight of my reign has been volunteering for my favorite organizations like Cradles to Crayons where children in need in my own community are provided the essentials they need to succeed in school and at home; Aid for Friends, where I put my love for cooking to use by preparing meals for the homebound and Making Strides Against Breast Cancer where supporters from my community join together for such an important cause.
My time spent with my sister queens have been so encouraging.  They are all true role models and now best friends.  We have had such an amazing year together at photo shoots, nationals in Disney Land and Hollywood, Hershey Park, our state capitol, ice cream parties, pageant prep sessions and open calls and we are even going to tour the White House!
For nationals, my whole family traveled across the country to California together to support me.  I had an amazing time at all of the themed parties, rehearsals and competitions and am so proud of my accomplishments.  Not only did I place 2nd runner up in the Princess division, I won the National Actress title and 3rd runner up Most Promising Model.
Being your 2015 Miss Pennsylvania Princess has introduced me to a new world.  Although this road is ending for me, it has led me down a path that will forever, shape my future.  For the girls who take this journey next, get ready for your dreams to come true!

With Love,

Anna Elizabeth Rinnier
