Hi everyone! I am happy to share that I've been asked to be a contestant in the 2018 Miss California USA pageant! A good friend of mine encouraged me to apply, and with a little reservation and doubt I took a leap. This being my first ever pageant, I would love to welcome you all and all of your support.

Though many rarely believe me when I say it, I do tend to be a little quiet and reserved most times. Some call it shy, I always say I'm more of a mix between introverted and extroverted. During my early teenage years I struggled with low self-esteem as many girls may have; it is a difficult time of transitioning in life. You're becoming a woman. I spent a large majority of my childhood dreaming, but never felt confident enough to pursue those dreams. Despite my insecurities, I have always been determined to excel academically. Along with finding my voice as a young woman I used my education as my platform to advance myself not only career wise, but also to show myself that I am capable of anything I set my mind to. And though I knew what I wanted to achieve I experienced countless road blocks, the toughest being supporting myself finaincially through college. However, with the support of my family and close friends and constant prayer I graduated with my Bachelors of Arts in Psychology in 4 years. This degree afforded me the opportunity to work in Berkeley, CA serving underpriviledged populations, many of which suffer from mental illnesses, homelessness and psychosocial struggles. Having had this opportunity I am passionate more than ever to puruse a career as a Nurse Practitioner and to continue serving the wonderful population that I work with.

I believe this platform will challenge me to not only be more confident in myself and what I am capable of, but also will give me an opportunity to represent my city Richmond, CA and give a voice to/ encourage young girls who aspire to achieve great things in life. 

The costs of the pageant is $1800, which covers entry and wardrobe for the event. The first $500 is due by the end of next month (June) and the remainder by the end of September. The pageant will be held December 1st - 3rd in Long Beach, CA.

I'm hoping to have as many sponsors as possbile and I hope that you can help; any help is so appreciated! I am also looking for sponsors to offer hair and makeup tips (and possibly style me for the event). And if you know how to walk the runway, I would love those tips too :) So if you're up for it and would like to come along on the journey with me, I'd be so happy to have you.

I have to say, I have some of the most supportive friends, family and peers out there. So aside from any help funding this amazing opportunity, I want to also say thank you in advance to everyone for your encouragement and positivity along the way. I wouldn't be where I am today without the love and support of you all.

So here's to the upcoming Miss California USA pageant and to Alexis Bradley representing Richmond, CA! Thank you guys!
