Miss Illinois USA
I have recently been invited to participate in the Miss Illinois USA pageant this upcoming September! If I should happen to win, I will then continue on to the Miss USA and Miss Universe pageant televised live on NBC. The Miss USA pageant system encourages and stresses the importance of social awareness and community involvement. Paramount to all else, is the opportunity to develop myself through the journey to become a stronger and more self-assured individual. There is a lot that goes into making this dream a reality, and I need your help! There are many fees involved and as a sponsor you will play an integral role in helping me achieve this. Not only that, but this is a chance to give back to our community by helping me achieve my dream! The top twelve sponsors, whether individual or business will be recognized in the program book, thus, if you are a business your donation can come from your advertising budget, and be utilized as a business tax-deduction. Every amount donated is greatly appreciated and places me one step closer to this opportunity! Thank you so much for your time and consideration.
Home of the Sparrow mission: "To provide Hope, Opportunity and Support that empowers women and children, as they journey from homelessness to self-sufficiency.
Vision: To reduce homelessness among women and children through strategies and community partnerships, resulting in lasting self-sufficiency."
First off, I wanted to take the time and say thank you to each one of my family members, friends, and sponsors thus far for your generous and kind words of encouragement. Your support and donations towards my amazing journey of becoming Miss Illinois USA means more than you will ever know.
My full time position as a Personal Stylist at Nordstrom has allowed me to fulfill my love of fashion while empowering men, women, and children to look and feel their absolute best. I am a firm believer that confidence is the best asset, in work and in life. Therefore, I wanted to update everyone... I have partnered with an amazing organization called "Home of the Sparrow".
The mission at Home of the Sparrow is simple: to provide Hope, Opportunity and Support that empowers women and children, as they journey from homelessness to self-sufficiency. Their vision is to reduce homelessness among women and children through strategies and community partnerships, resulting in lasting self-sufficiency.
Homelessness is something that no one should have to go through. I have decided I will be donating the remaining portion of sponsorships I receive on the behalf of my running for Miss Illinois USA, to the Home of the Sparrow.
Let's all work together to support, empower and give back to our community! Please help support me on my journey today.
