Featuring Miss Michigan Jr. Teen!

Dear contestants, Congratulations on how far you've come and how hard you've worked. Let your personality shine on stage, and let the judges see how beautiful you are inside and out.
The first time I competed at National American Miss was in 2015 where I placed 1st runner up to the Jr.teen title, only to be win it the next year, thanks to the love on support of my family. To the women who has been with me every single step of the way, Mom; the best escort, Dad; and the best brother, Attalla; thank you for your help, encouragement and for always making me smile, I love you.
When crowned the NAM Michigan Jr.teen 2016, I had no idea that this year would be one of the greatest in my life, and one that I will cherish forever. Rebekah, Christina, Katelyn, Makiah, Mckenzie, and Amanda, volunteering and making appearances with you was a blast, and I can't imagine sharing those experiences with anyone else. You have all truly become my sisters.
Mr. and Mrs. Lew and Patti Schneider, th…

Featuring Miss Michigan!

Wow! What an incredible year it has been. It was 6 years ago that I first fell in love with NAM and started my journey – then being crowned Miss Michigan Teen in 2015 and Miss Michigan in 2016 changed my life forever.I am so grateful for the amazing opportunities that have been bestowed upon me through this experience. Although my journey with National American Miss is coming to a close, the lessons I have learned and the skills I have attained remind me every day what a wonderful impact NAM has on young women across the country. This year alone I have made so many unforgettable memories like speaking on live television on behalf of the American Heart Association, volunteering at an international marathon to encourage living a healthy lifestyle, cooking spaghetti alongside my sister queens at the Ronald McDonald House and riding in a Lamborghini at the Detroit Auto show are only a few. At nationals, I became close to my five little sisters and made a new best friend all the way from …

Featuring Miss Indiana Pre-Teen Cover Girl!

It is so hard for me to believe that one year has passed by already since I was crowned Miss Indiana Pre-Teen Cover Girl! It has truly been a life changing experience for me in so many ways. Prior to last year I had never competed in a pageant before. One day last march I came home from school and my mom handed me an invitation to attend an open call for National American Miss in my hometown of Merrillville. I was very hesitant because I had never been on a stage in front of people before and I was very shy and quiet and not at all confident in my ability to compete in a pageant but my mom believed in me so much that she gave me the push I needed to get out of my comfort zone and give it a shot and to my surprise I was one of the lucky girls that was chosen that day to be a State Finalist! The title of Cover Girl is not an easy title to win. There is so much hard work that goes into talking to local businesses and to friends and family. I learned so much about myself going through t…

What an Awesome Year for Miss Illinois Teen!

I have had an unforgettable experience being your National American Miss Illinois Teen Queen 2016. I can’t believe I have been given the opportunity to be a National American Miss Queen for the first time. After being crowned, I couldn’t wait to use my title and participate in many community service opportunities as possible. I was able to participate in the Fall and Spring Walk of Hope to promote cancer awareness. In August, I had the opportunity to model in the fashion show for Pageant Girls for a Cure. I donated my community service school supplies to Homewood Christian Academy. I collected food in honor of Stamp Out Hunger Day. I was even a co-host for the Homewood Christian Academy Fashion/Talent Show. Being queen is the best job I have ever had. I will never forget these memories and I will cherish them forever. To my sister queens, I will never forget the times we spent together and I will really miss you girls. To my teen sister queens, I will miss you guys so much!!! I had su…
