My year as MISS MISSOURI USA® 2014 has been incredible. I am living a dream. In just over a month, on June 8th, I will be competing live on NBC for the prestigious title of MISS USA® 2014! During this final month and a half I will continue training and preparing to be my best! I would love nothing more than to bring the title of Miss USA home to my great state of Missouri! There is extensive preparation that goes into getting ready for the two weeks I will be competing at Miss USA®. I am so thankful to my State Directors and all of My State Pageant Sponsors who have been with me along this journey. They have been essential in my preparation and have provided me with so much. Without them I would not be ready for Miss USA® .On top of everything else they have even helped me start my wardrobe for the two weeks that I will be on location at the pageant.
However, I still find myself struggling to fund the remainder of my needs. I am a recent college graduate, and support myself through waitressing. I worked full time through college to support myself and make my dreams come true. I have put off starting my "full-time" career this year, so that I can make as many appearances, touch as many lives and prepare for MISS USA® as hard as I can! I have set a goal to raise $4,500 to help offset my need to complete my day to day wardrobe, shipping costs of my wardrobe, alterations, pageant makeup, daily essentials for the competition, and so much more! I also have already made many amazing appearances, but most of them are for charity, so these funds would help with my travel to and from appearances, to and from my pageant preparations, and other events.
Being MISS MISSOURI USA®2014 has been one of the greatest honors of my life. Any financial support will help me do my absolute best to bring home the national MISS USA® crown home to Missouri. Thank you in advance for your love and support.
Sincerely, Erica Sturdefant, MISS MISSOURI USA® 2014
