Heading to Nationals

Hello everyone, my name is Desna Marie Johnson and I was recently crowned National American Miss 2014 for the great state of Maryland. I will be heading to Nationals this November in California to compete for the National Title.  I have been a part of this great organization since the age of 13 and it has helped me become the young lady that I am today. You see, it is my ambition to become a grief counselor for children. Who could ever imagine losing a mother, baby brother and grandmother at the age of eight, that is what happend to me during a tragic accident in which I was the only survivor.  With the help of the Children's Bereavement Center of Miami Florida I realized GOD's plan for me. Competing in National American Miss allows me the opportunity to win scholarship money that would help futher my education. By becoming a grief counselor, I strive to help others such as myself survive the devastation of losing a loved one. I am asking for your help getting me to Nationals, anything you can give will help me with airfare and hotel.  Thank you so much for taking the time to look at my video and read my message.  And wish me luck at Nationals.  Sending much love, Desna
