Miss Fashionetta PEARLS OF DISTINCTION



















I am pleased and honored to be presented as a debutante at the 2014 Miss Fashionetta® PEARLS OF DISTINCTION "Destined, Determined & Divine", a cotillion sponsored by the AKA-LADE Foundation in partnership with the Lambda Alpha Omega chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated. This black tie affair will take place on March 15th 2014 at the Oakbrook Hills Resort in Oakbrook, IL at 6:00pm. Founded in 1908, Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority is a non-profit, international organization of college-trained women whose purpose is to be a "service to all mankind." The debutante presentation will culminate several months of educational and cultural activities designed to prepare participants for college and beyond. My escort for the evening is Mr. Andre Martin, son of Monica and Stefon Martin.

The daughter of Stephanie Freeman Gathe and Jeffrey Gathe, I am a senior at Neuqua Valley High School where I maintain a 3.92 GPA on a 4.0 scale. I am a National Merit/National Achievement Scholar; a National Society for High School Scholar, an Illinois State Scholar and an Indian Prairie Scholar. My extracurricular activities include being a member of Jack & Jill of America Inc. for over 15 years where I am presently the Treasurer of the Trailblazers Teen Group, a Varsity All-State swimmer, a water polo goalie, a volunteer coach and official for the River Run Raptors swim and water polo teams and an executive board member of the Principal's Advisory Council. I also speak Chinese, tutor students in Math and Physics and have over 80 hours of community service. In the fall of 2014 I plan to attend Georgia Tech or Stanford University and major in Computer and Electrical Engineering.
