Road to Miss California USA

Hello friends! So I have decided to throw my hat in the ring and give one final shot to the pageant circuit. This is the last year I will be eligible to compete so I'm going into it with my whole heart. I planned to run last year, but as my fathers health dwindled, I felt it more important to spend time with him; the pageant can wait. So this Run for Miss California will be done in memory of my dad. He was and always will be my biggest fan, and really wanted me to do this. So I'll be walking the stage with his eyes on me from heaven. That being said, I need your help! I have to raise money for pageant fees, competition clothing, travel, and expenses. Anything helps! My goal ultimate goal is to bring Christ with me on this journey and shine my light in a place where most don't expect it to be! Wish me luck :)

P.S. I'll be representing my hometown of Stockton, Ca

Pageant Date: December 2-4, 2016
Location: Long Beach, Ca
