Miss American Samoa

$6,750 of $8,000 goal

Raised by 61 people in 45 months
Please consider supporting me on my journey to become the first American Samoan woman to compete in the Miss United States 2014 pageant! Funds will go towards travel expenses, hotel, competition fees, and mandatory wardrobe fees. 

Talofa family, friends, and comminty members; 

I am writing to ask for your support for a truly special event I will be participating in on July 1, 2014. For the first time in history, American Samoa will be participating in the Miss United States pageant, and I have the utmost honor of representing the territory in Washington, DC for the 2014 Miss United States!

The Miss United States Organization exists for the purpose of providing an avenue of achievement for women and girls ages 8-40. At a local, state, and national level, the program promotes each titleholder's platform for service, while acting as a national partner with Relay for Life and the American Cancer Society. Titleholders further enjoy opportunities in fashion, media, and community events while giving back to their communities and being recognized as positive role models to young women across the nation. Under the direction of Chris Wilmer, the national Miss United States contest includes the divisions of Miss, Ms., Teen, Junior Teen, Pre-Teen, and Little Miss and takes place in Washington, DC during Independence Day activities.

As a rising senior in college and the first of my siblings to graduate post secondary school, I have come to understand the importance of positive role models. I aspire to share my story on a national level to encourage young, Samoan women across the diaspora to aspire and achieve all that they dream. With your help, I know we can make this a reality! I hope you will consider supporting my quest to be a part of the 2014 Miss United States Pageant. As part of my participation in this pageant, I need to secure sponsors who would like to support me. Any amount would be greatly appreciated! If you should have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me at (385) 229-7043 or missamericansamoa2014@gmail.com. Thank you in advance for your support and I look forward to working together!
