I am currently a contestant in the Miss Arizona Teen USA 2015 pageant. I am so blessed to represent my city as Miss Chandler Teen USA! The pageant will be held in November and tickets will go on sale in the beginning of October.
I am currently a senior attending Hamilton High School...(last year YAY!) I am 17 years old and I am beyond excited to start this adventure.
This pageant means many things to me. It is more than just a competition. If you didn't already know, I have three BEAUTIFUL younger sisters whom I love sooo much. Of course, they are one of the main reasons that I got the courage and inspiration to even join this pageant. Being the oldest of four girls, I have some big sparkly shoes to fill. I try my absolute best to be the best role model to them. Being Miss Teen Arizona would mean that I would be a role model to many other girls which would warm my heart just as much as being a role model to my sisters does.
Also, being Miss Arizona Teen USA would mean that I get to bring awareness to a very special girl. My sister, Mia, has a rare blood disorder called Diamond Blackfan Anemia. Her body does not produce any red blood cells so in order for her to survive she must get blood transfusions about every three weeks. She has started an organization called Mia's Marrow to bring awareness to saving lives through simple ways. She has partnered up with Be the Match and United Blood Services to make this happen! Big shout out to everyone who has donated blood or participated in the Be the Match cheeck swab! You guys are literally life savers :)
Without a doubt, this is the most amazing opportunity I have come across thus far in my life. However, even though it is a great opportunity, it is quite costly.
I am reaching out to all of you to help me - EVERY little bit helps! Every way of sponsorship support is beyond greatly appreciated!
the costs include:
the entry fee of the pageant-$1300 (i have already made a payment of $650)
headshots and photos
Like I said before, ANY support helps! If you would like to make a donation, that would seriously be so amazing. I love you all and I am beyond dedicated to being the best I can be. Preparation for the pageant is going to be hard but beyond worth it. Hoping to bring the crown home this November!
