World Class Beauty Queens Magazine: I’m curious about your education journey. What's it been like for you, any particular highlights or challenges? I worked at the State’s attorney’s office in Miami Janet Reno as a victim witness counselor. I learned a lot about the judicial system and Janet even became the 1 st woman US Attorney General under President Clinton.

It’s important to be on top of your credit and be ready to lend a helping hand to the younger women coming after us.

World Class Beauty Queens Magazine: How did you get into pageants? What sparked your interest initially? I was at a jr. falcons cheerleading game and was introduced to the wardrobe of the pageant contestants. While looking at the dresses I found out that adults could compete, and it piqued my interest. I did some research and fell in love and that was the start of my journey in the world of pageantry. I started out as a judge and shortly after that I began to get into the glitz and glamour of being on stage.

World Class Beauty Queens Magazine: What motivated you to participate in your first pageant? Was there a defining moment? After judging a few pageants someone said I should really get the feel for being on stage myself. I got the full picture after competing in my first pageant and I didn’t place, and I was determined to try again because I wanted to win.

World Class Beauty Queens Magazine: Why did you choose to compete for your current title? What made it stand out for you? This system UIE impressed me with the level of attention to detail the directors conveyed for the contestants. This system is very inclusionary with those that are disabled, and other various conditions and the treatment was top tier. Equality Empathy and Empowerment is how we change the world-One queen at a time.

World Class Beauty Queens Magazine: I'd love to know more about your pageant system. Could you explain what it’s all about? UIE pageant system advocates for us to love ourselves and what we see in the mirror. They encourage us to be empowered and positive and be a light to others. This system fosters inclusivity by welcoming all ages, sizes, and those with disabilities which is amazing. UIE is the best pageant system I have ever worked with and the love they show during and after competition is what makes them top tier.

World Class Beauty Queens Magazine: What do you think sets your pageant director apart from others? Communication and Availability, I can call or email anytime with a question or concern, and they are always there ready and willing to help. It’s a family environment all the time not just when it’s time to compete, and that’s amazing.

World Class Beauty Queens Magazine: During competitions, what are the key things you're judged on?

We were judged on our gowns, outfit of choice, Interview, on-stage questions, and an essay on what community service means to us. These are the most common items that will get you the score you need to win.

World Class Beauty Queens Magazine: What’s your competition experience been like? Any

memorable moments or learnings? I have met the mayors in most surroundings areas. I have met the police chief and been privy to ribbon cuttings for several grand openings. I went to the Steve Harvey show and pulled on stage with my crown and sash.

World Class Beauty Queens Magazine: Would you recommend your pageant system to others? If so, why? Yes, I would recommend UIE for anyone looking to get into a system that truly cares about the participants. This system takes care of the winners for the entire year, not just at the beginning like other systems. It’s a family-like system and the love is felt from the time of registration until we all meet in person.

World Class Beauty Queens Magazine: Tell me about your advocacy or volunteer work. What causes are you passionate about? I’m passionate about “Shop with a cop” where all the local officers, sheriffs, probation officers etc., meet at the local Walmart and we take kids that are below the poverty line and let them pick out up to $250.00 worth of goods. I wear my crown and sash and take some of the girls around the store and help them get some items of their choice.

World Class Beauty Queens Magazine: Can you share some of your achievements, both in and outside of pageantry? My achievements inside and outside of pageants come from what I give to others with my volunteer work.
