I don’t think there are adequate words to describe the last few days. I have experienced a whirlwind of emotions. I also know that this past year I worked harder than ever before to present the best possible version of myself on the Miss Delaware stage. Being called first runner up earlier this month was an extremely humbling experience but I looked forward to celebrating the win of my fellow pageant sister.
We may not always understand the plan
but God works in mysterious ways. It gives me great solace to remember
that everything happens for a reason.
On June 26th I was
crowned Miss Delaware 2014. While the circumstances have not been
traditional, I know that I have dreamed about this moment since I was
five years old and I am beyond grateful. When thinking about my story I
reflect on the poetry of the late Langston Hughes, “Life Ain’t Been No
Crystal Stair.” Those that know me personally can speak to the
adversity, unconventionality, and eccentricity through all major times
in my life. My new title as Miss Delaware has been no different.
I am being given the opportunity of a lifetime as a role model and
official representative of the state of Delaware. I am looking forward
to a wonderful year of service as I promote my platform of Domestic
Violence Awareness in memory of my guardian angel and deceased sister
Thank you to everyone that has supported me
up to this moment and all those that have welcomed me with open arms
moving forward. I’m looking forward to continuing the rich legacy of the
organization and tirelessly serving my community and sisters memory.
Your Miss Delaware 2014,
