I am nine years old and just started 3rd grade. My favorite school subject is Art. Our district is currently distance learning from home but the teachers are doing a fantastic job. In the evenings I go to my gymnastics lessons where I am learning multiple backhand springs. The coaches are skilled and one day I hope to join their competitive team, the Twisters. World Class Princess Magazine: What does it mean to you to be a princess? Being a princess means I have a chance to use my crown and sash in my community to make a difference. When I go out people will pay attention to what I am doing and I hope to inspire them to make a difference. World Class Princess Magazine: Tell us about your pageant history. I started in East Coast USA Pageants, which is a natural beauty pageant, in their Maryland State Preliminary on March 2019. I was honored to receive 2nd runner up beauty for my age division; with the side titles of best personality, prettiest hair, best dressed, and prettiest smile! I made a lot of fun friends there and went to ECUSA Nationals in July 2019. When March 2020 happened the pandemic had not started yet in America and I competed in my age division once again at ECUSA Preliminary Maryland State. I was a little less nervous this time and was able to bring home my age division’s 3rd runner up out of the largest group in the pageant, along with prettiest eyes. When they called my name for the Peoples Choice Title I was surprised and excited because I knew I would be able to attend nationals as a title holder. When the pandemic started, my mother and I competed in a virtual pageant for ECUSA and received Little Miss Mother/Daughter 2020-21. It was my only virtual pageant but it was very fun to receive a matching crown and sash with my mom. My most recent pageant was ECUSA Nationals in New Jersey, September 2020. I made new friends and can not wait to compete with them again this October for the Halloween Pageant. World Class Princess Magazine: What inspired you to do your first pageant? My Nana signed my aunt and I up at ECUSA because she knew I love to create videos and wanted to expand my knowledge. My mother is a big inspiration to me and I love to do things together with her like pageants. World Class Princess Magazine: Why did you choose to compete for your current title? When choosing to compete in a pageant, my family knew it had to be a natural beauty pageant that focused on inner beauty and kindness. While I am very into makeup and glitter, I want to showcase my personality and helping my community. I was able to choose which state to compete in but wanted to stay in Maryland because it is where I have always lived. World Class Princess Magazine: To those unfamiliar with your pageant system please tell us what is it about? The East Coast USA Pageant is for girls and women of all ages and is a fun family oriented event! They open up many opportunities for contestants such as; getting involved with modeling, going on fantastic appearances, and so much more. The pageant is a natural pageant that does not allow makeup on children under 11 and prefers a natural/light makeup look on young ladies and adults. World Class Princess Magazine: What are you being judged on during the competition? The judges are looking for someone who is not afraid to put themselves out there on stage and in their community. You need to show personality and explain what you are doing to help in your town now and in the future. They are looking for leaders. World Class Princess Magazine: Tell us about your experience during the competition. My experience has been wonderful for creating friendships, learning public speaking, and how to make difference in my neighborhood. Everyone is so kind in ECUSA and really does want the best future for each of the contestants. After the first competition I felt like I was part of a large supporting family. World Class Princess Magazine: Tell us about your platform or what cause do you volunteer for. I am currently working on a platform to help with growth in Arts for children. I have always been an energetic person with ADHD and Art helps calm me down and focus. I want to help more children like me use Art as a positive outlet. World Class Princess Magazine: What appearances have you done with your title? Due to receiving my title during the pandemic, the appearances have been small. I have donated coffee and pastries to the Maryland State Police Glen Burnie Barrack. But while appearances are small, I can still make a difference in my community by donating toys and clothes to my local families in need. I hope to do more within the community again as we get closer to the holidays by using my crafting skill to wrap and donate more toys to families in need. World Class Princess Magazine: What are some of your achievements? My achievements include ‘Student of the Month’ at my school while also maintaining straight A’s on my report cards. Recently I was able to level up in gymnastics to level 2 by mastering back walk overs, round-offs, and handstands. World Class Princess Magazine: What is your on stage strategy to win the judges over? The best strategy is to show confidence and smile. I was told recently that I move too fast so learned a trick of counting to three for each pose with a minimum of five poses. World Class Princess Magazine: What makes you stand out from all those other beautiful girls? I hope that my enthusiastic energy I bring to the pageants and being helpful and friendly to everybody I meet lets my personality shine bright. World Class Princess Magazine: Tell us about the moment your name was called out as the winner. When they called my name for the Maryland State Peoples Choice Title I was so surprised and excited because I knew I would be able to attend nationals as a title holder. It was the first title they announced of the day and was so unexpected. World Class Princess Magazine: How did competing in pageants help your life? The confidence I now have from speaking on stage has helped me when I need to read out loud to my classmates. The photoshoots I have been a part of because of this pageant has taught me that I can be beautiful. World Class Princess Magazine: You are an inspiration to all the girls out there. How does it feel? I feel honored that other girls can look up to me and I hope to make them proud with everything that I do. World Class Princess Magazine: What are your tips for learning better pageant walk? Take your time and stop to look into the audience. Try to keep count like a dance routine. World Class Princess Magazine: What are your tips for choosing right pageant dress? I love when my dress complements my red hair and blue eyes. I go with purples and blues with a ball gown poof at the bottom. Anything that makes me feel pretty helps with my on stage confidence. World Class Princess Magazine: What are your tips for winning interview? Just be yourself and always answer honestly, never try to be someone you are not. The judges are looking for an honest and detailed answer. World Class Princess Magazine: How did you prepare for your competition? My mother and I have fun practicing at home with music. We try our speeches on each other out loud to listen for mistakes and see what sound good. World Class Princess Magazine: What is one mistake that you've done during competing you wish you could redo and fix it? At nationals I was to fast on stage for my first performance and wish I could slow down. World Class Princess Magazine: What other mistakes are made by girls during the contest? I never really notice mistakes by others because I am just so happy everyone has the confidence to go on stage. World Class Princess Magazine: Any modeling or acting experience? I have had the opportunity to have two professional shoots and one runway show with East Coast Starz this year in New Jersey which has opened the doors for meeting designers and photographers. World Class Princess Magazine: What are your plans for 2020/21 as a Princess? I plan on using my title to help in my community and learn all I can about the modeling industry. I have signed up for another pageant with ECUSA for Halloween and will be competing in the ECUSA Maryland State Pageant again next year. World Class Princess Magazine: What kind of legacy do you want to leave behind? I want to leave a legacy of being a kind and thoughtful person who was always their for her friends.
