Help Me Become the Next Miss TX USA

Dear second amendment community and fans,

May I ask you a question?  Would you please be willing to help me compete at MissTexas USA?

I was chosen to represent my area in the pageant several months ago but I did not have the funds to compete. Registration dates came and went and I decided that my dream of competing in Miss Texas USA would just not come true.

See, I'm 27 and this is the very last year that I can compete before I age out.

Then something both devastating and wonderful happened... Hurricane Harvey.

The Miss Texas USA pageant was supposed to take place the first week of September in Houston but was postponed to January of 2018.

I emailed the state director and I have a second chance to compete!

This is where I humbly ask for your help. With Miss Texas International I funded the entire thing on my own. Miss Texas USA is a big platform and will require way more funding than I can ever hope to self-fund. I am taking this step by step though.

In order to compete I have to come up with the $1200 registration fee. The fee includes my time at the hotel that I am staying in and all the preliminary costs associated with competing.


Would you please give $20, $50, or $100 and help me get to the Miss Texas USA stage? Expenses include my personal interview outfit, evening gown, photograpy, swimsuit, personal training, hair, makeup, and skincare. A list of all my expenses are below.

Evening gown + alternations: $1500
Interview outfit +alterations: $500
Swimsuit: $400
Headshots by Austin Ryde (world renowned pageant photographer and makeup artist: $1000
Makeup + Hair: $1500 (headshot photoshoot plus weekend of pageant)
4 months of personal training: $1000
Pageant Coaching + Speech coach: $1000
Shoes, makeup, jewelry: $300
Skincare: $1000

I am also taking sponsorships if you would like your business to be included in the official Miss Texas USA program. Your business would be advertised to a sold out crowd in the biggest pageant system in the world, Miss Universe. Not to mention a system once owned by President Trump himself.

If you are willing to sponsor one of the line items above I can include you in the book.

I will be representing my hometown as Miss Carrollton USA.

For those who are willing to donate $100 or more I will send you an autographed photo of my official Miss Texas USA competition headshot. 

Friends, would you be willing to help sponsor me in this dream of mine? It would mean the world to me. It's my very last chance to compete in Miss Texas USA. It would be an absolute honor if you could help me get there.

Thank you for your consideration.

Humbly and Sincerely,
Antonia Okafor
