Featuring Miss Florida Jr. Pre-Teen!

The past year has been an amazing journey.    From being crowned Miss Florida Junior Pre-Teen, to competing against the most amazing girls at Nationals, to participating in countless hours of community service, my time as Queen has been an incredible experience.

I have enjoyed the crown and banner.  I had so much fun in California at Nationals.  None of that compares to the pride I took in using my title to give back to my community.  

I volunteered and raised money for Parkland Buddy Sports, helping special needs children participate in organized sports.  I was the top fundraiser at my school for the American Heart Association.  Some of the most fun I had was volunteering at the Mad Hatter Tea Party, a fundraiser raising money for the Lisa Boccard Breast Cancer Fund.  I even got to dress up as the Mad Hatter.

I cannot forget all the friends that I made at the State and National Pageant.   I know these are friendships that will last forever.   In particular, I want to thank my Sister Queens Ella, Gabi, Lexi, and Janae.  You will always have a special place in my heart.  I am always amazed by how beautiful these girls are inside and out, and I am so proud to be part of their NAMily.

NAM has helped me become more confident and has reminded me of the importance of being kind and generous.   The honor of being Miss Florida Junior Pre-Teen is something that I will never forget.

I would like to thank my mom for always making sure I look my best.  I want to thank my dad for being the best escort a girl could ask for.  I cannot forget Mr. and Mrs. Mayes.   Thank you for giving me this awesome opportunity.   NAM has changed my life forever, giving me the opportunity to be the best version of me.  
Ms. LaKishia, thank you for always supporting me.  I want to thank my mentors, Ashlhea and Haley, for teaching me the value of hard-work and dedication.

As my year comes to an end, I hope the next Miss Florida Junior Pre-Teen enjoys her experience as much as I have, cherishes every moment because it goes by so fast, and remembers that it is better to give than to receive.
