Congratulations on being a finalist of Miss Texas USA. How do you feel?
Thank you! I’m honestly so honored and blessed to be able to compete for this amazing title. I truly don’t have the words to describe my excitement, but it feels like a dream to have the opportunity to compete for my dream job.
Which part of the competition are you most looking forward to? Do you have any apprehensions?
I’m really excited about the interview portion of the competition. It gives me to opportunity to show my personality and to allow the judges to get to know me better as a person and a contestant. I honestly don’t have any apprehensions; I’ve been extremely dedicated to training and preparing for Miss Texas USA, and I know my hard work will pay off and my light shines bright come competition day.
What qualities a woman should have to represent a whole nation?
To represent an entire nation, I believe the qualities a woman should have include: being courageous and confident in who she is and all that she does, being conscious of the world around her, resilient in her effort to succeed, and having the ability to empathize and relate to others.
What inspired you to walk on the course of beauty pageants?
I’ve honestly always wanted to walk on the course of beauty pageants, but when I was younger I was 110% dedicated to sports and school. Now that my athletic and academic career have come to a close, God told me it’s my time to pursue this dream and made a way for me to do so.
Social media seem to play a major role in pageantry nowadays. Do you think this is advantageous to you? Why or why not?
I believe the role social media plays in pageantry is very advantageous; it allows the world to connect to pageantry in a way that we couldn’t 10 or 15 years ago by allow us to connect with different pageant systems and all the amazing contestants beyond what we see on stage. It also provides a platform for us to be global influencers by sharing our life experiences, values, and hobbies with the world, while also giving us the opportunity to spread positivity.
Thanks to the beautiful Rachel for the interview. Pageants News wishes you all the very best for Miss Texas USA pageant.
