My father is African American and Native American. He is a former US Veteran, teacher, former supermodel and currently a doctor. He tought me to always keep going.

My thoughts and details I put in my gowns and national costume. My natural charm, good energy and most Importantly my hard work, focus and dedication. World Class Beauty Queens: Tell us about the moment your name was called out as the winner. I felt like God was in the room. The stage and roof light was glittering. I held the other girls hands and waiting patiently on who's name to call out. When I finally heard my name I was filled with emotions and I was speechless. I wanted to laugh and cry at the same time and I was so proud of myself. All the hard work had finally paid off. I knew God was there.

Increased my network circle. Learned more about myself each time. Leadership and personal growth formed me to be the woman I am today. A chance to live the excitement and the dream. World Class Beauty Queens: How did pageants helped your selfesteem and body image? Everytime you work on your stage appearance you work on you're confidence. Accept yourself for who you are and other people will. I always enjoyed entertainment so when I started with pageantry it made it more fun. World Class Beauty Queens: You are an inspiration to all the girls out there. How does it feel? It's truly an honor. Women have an amazing history and I'm happy to be apart of if. I encourage more girls and women out there to be inspirational. To take control over their own lives and make a difference. Most importantly, find your passion and purpose. World Class Beauty Queens: What is your on stage strategy to win the judges over? Eye contact. Make a connection with the judges is the number one rule. Walk with confidence gracefully, have fun and let them read your personality by your walk and smile. Be memorable. When you're leaving the stage you want them to remember you.

Focus on yourself is the key to control your own stage appearance. World Class Beauty Queens: What are your tips for learning better pageant walk? It's very important that you learn the pageantry runway routine. It's different from high fashion catwalk. Practice until you learn you flaws and work on them. If you need more help I prefer you seeing a pageantry runway coach so you can reach your full potential. Walk slowly and gracefully, swing your hips and smile at all times. Keep eye contact with judges and the audience. World Class Beauty Queens: What are your tips for choosing right pageant dress? Go after a color that fits you the best and don't be afraid to go overboard with beautiful gown. Always good to be noticeable but make sure you can walk in it.

I worked hard for it and I was mentally and physically prepared as I earned the title with honor after all the dedication. To other women out there I would say to always test walk your shoes in your dress (preferable at the stage where you will be walking on) so you can get a feeling on how it feels in your national costume or huge gowns. World Class Beauty Queens: What other mistakes are made by girls during the contest? They forget their own number and concentration which leaves them confused on when their turn to walk is.

That is strong enough to manage big groups to come together for life goals and achievements. Empowering moments when we slowly get to know ourself and use our full potential to be the best version of us and to succeed. A legacy to build, motivate and guide people to find themself and consistently learning and spreading knowledge amoungst us.
