“Becoming Miss Virginia State University will afford me the opportunity to show young girls that, even if they come from a small town, there are opportunities to accomplish big things,” she said. “I want young ladies to understand every aspect of being a woman is beautiful. We have to mold ourselves into amplifiers of success and prove that we can do anything, while keeping God first.”
