World Class Beauty Queens: Please tell us about yourself.
I like to think of myself as a unique person. Sure, we are all unique in our own individual way but I’m an open book. What you see is what you get. I’m random, energetic, organized, passionate, and loyal. I grew up in a small town in southern Virginia – South Hill. Funny thing is that is the same town that hosts the Mrs Virginia Pageant. I graduated high school and didn’t know what to do after that because I wasn’t ready for college so I joined the Air Force. I met and married my husband while on active duty. He is the one who supported and encouraged me to go back to school. I now have my Bachelor’s Degree in Finance and an MBA in Contracts and Acquisition Management.
I have been married for over 17 years. I have two sons, Alex (14) and Nick (10). I also have two dogs, Chester and William. Both my husband and I work fulltime but we always make time to eat together every night as a family. We try to instill in our boys the importance of spending time together as a family, working hard and playing hard. I try to teach my boys that being outside and living in the moment is better than living life through a screen.
World Class Beauty Queens: What does women Empowerment means to you? Empowerment, to me, means encouraging others to be the best they can be. It doesn’t matter your background; you need to be better than you were yesterday. You need to rise above your mind and your circumstances and work together to make the World a better place.
World Class Beauty Queens: What inspired you to do your first pageant? My boys and I were researching online and I ran across the Mrs Virginia America site. I saw that the pageant was in my hometown and my boys said that I needed to try out for it. So, it was their idea.
World Class Beauty Queens: Why did you choose to compete for your current title? I chose to compete for my current title because this is the area where I currently reside and it feels more like home than any other place I have lived.
World Class Beauty Queens: To those unfamiliar with your pageant system please tell us what is it about? Mrs Virginia America is a great organization because it is very family oriented and all of the ladies encourage and support each other. It isn’t about who is the prettiest or who volunteers the most or puts on the best show. It’s about sisterhood and congeniality.
World Class Beauty Queens: What are you being judged on during the competition? The pageant is divided into three categories- interview, swimsuit, and evening gown. During each of these categories we are to showcase our confidence and articulate how we will best represent our state and title.
World Class Beauty Queens: Tell us about your experience during the competition. So far, I have met some amazing, kind, beautiful women. We all come from different backgrounds but we all share a common goal- to make the world around us better for others.
World Class Beauty Queens: Tell us about your platform or what cause do you volunteer for. My platform is Mental Health Awareness. I feel as though so many issues could be prevented if we all understood how to handle our thoughts and express our feelings in a positive manner. I think this starts in childhood so I want to work on getting more support in the school system.
World Class Beauty Queens: What appearances have you done with your title? I haven’t made any official appearances with my title. I have volunteered with Girls on the Run, I volunteer with the USO, and I participated in the HeartWalk for the American Heart Association. I do activities because I believe in them and not because of a title.
World Class Beauty Queens: What are some of your achievements? I have overcome my own mental health issues to become a resilient woman and mother. I have achieved my Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees. I am a home test chef for America’s Test Kitchen. I am a health and fitness coach and am also certified to teach combat fitness classes. I managed my entire household while my husband was deployed last year which included traveling for my job.
World Class Beauty Queens: What is your on stage strategy to win the judges over? I will be myself and just enjoy the moment and being able to represent my town.
World Class Beauty Queens: What makes you stand out from all those other beautiful girls? I am genuine, passionate, and resilient. I am a testament of why my platform is so important.
World Class Beauty Queens: Tell us about the moment your name was called out as the winner. It is an explainable feeling of joy. It is quite a rush of excitement to see how others believe in you as much as you believe in yourself.
World Class Beauty Queens: What does it mean to you to be a Beauty Queen? Beauty is more on the inside than the outside. Being a Beauty Queen means that others have recognized the beauty and talent on the inside and see how you articulate yourself in a confident manner.
World Class Beauty Queens: How did competing in pageants helped your life? Honestly this is the first pageant I’ve ever competed in. I never thought I was pretty enough or talented enough to be competitive.
World Class Beauty Queens: How did pageants helped your selfesteem and body image? The funny thing is that I’ve never felt so beautiful before. I have developed a confidence to be my genuine self and to be proud of who I am and how far I’ve come.
World Class Beauty Queens: You are an inspiration to all the girls out there. How does it feel? It feels surreal. I never thought that I would be an influence on young people or other moms like I have. I am still in awe and appreciate the opportunity to make a difference in my neighborhood, my community, and hopefully my state. I am indebted to all of my friends, family, and community that have supported me and my cause.
World Class Beauty Queens: What are your tips for learning better pageant walk? Practice, Practice, Practice. Be confident in who you are.
World Class Beauty Queens: What are your tips for choosing right pageant dress? Find a dress that works with your body shape. Wear one that expresses your personality and that you feel beautiful and confident in.
World Class Beauty Queens: What are your tips for winning interview? Be your genuine self. The judges want to get to know who you are and not who you think they want to see.
World Class Beauty Queens: How did you prepare for your competition? I watched videos of previous competitions and talked to past competitors about their experiences.
World Class Beauty Queens: What is one mistake that you've done during competing you wish you could redo and fix it? Rushing too fast in my walk. I would take my time to enjoy being in the moment.
World Class Beauty Queens: What other mistakes are made by girls during the contest? I’ve noticed that other ladies will let the stress get to them and they forget to enjoy the little things. They will stress over answering a question and forget what they were going to say or do.
World Class Beauty Queens: What are your plans for 2019 as a Queen? To make more of a difference in my community. I also want to show my boys the importance of volunteering and making a difference.
World Class Beauty Queens: What kind of legacy do you want to leave behind? I want to show others that they can accomplish anything they put their mind to. If you want something then you need to make an action plan and go for it. Things might not always turn out the way we imagined them to go but you miss 100% of the chances you don’t take. If you want something then you need to work hard to accomplish it. One small ripple can create a wave of change.
