My name is Maya Grace Slaughter and when you hear the  phrase "pageant girl" I may NOT be who comes to mind. In fact, I never would have thought I'd be able to call myself a Queen. Nor would  I have that thought after having teachers suggest that I stay back a year that I'd be able to study at some of the world's most prestigous colleges. My life to date has been full of opportunties where I have worked to overcome challeges and have had great success. I am asking for your support in this years Miss South Carolina pageant

Please join me in helping  to make the impossible POSSIBLE!
