"It doesn't matter how many times you fall as long as you get back up" - The gorgeous Allie Gonzalez will compete for the crown of Miss Texas USA 2018 later this year. This will be her 7th time. She was a semi-finalist in 2013, made the Top 17 in 2016 and went on to be the first and 4th runner-up in 2015 and 2014.
Allie believes that being a pageant title holder is a job that requires hard work, dedication and determination, because you’re no longer representing yourself but a group of people and a country. The pageant world gives opportunity like no other. You gain poise, self-confidence, new talents and valuable communication skills. You feel good about yourself and gain the competitive edge to succeed later in whatever field you may choose.
