Days away from flying out to New York to crown the girl who will be given the honor of being crowned as your new Queen,
International Ms USA. I have been reminiscing on my year as Your International Ms USA 2019 and I am in awe, it has been nothing short of incredible.
Being crowned your International Ms USA 2019 was a dream come true and a moment ill never forget. This year has been such a huge unforgettable beautiful experience that I will forever be grateful for. It all began with having a childhood dream of competing in pageantry. I personally believe those heart pulls and desires on our hearts are there for a reason. Its just a matter of having enough courage to go after it, never giving up and giving it everything you have. My reign is a true testament that if you have a dream, you should just go for it.
Winning this title opened many doors but it isn't about winning its about remembering we are all queens already born with a crown of royalty. Its about following our dreams and putting fear aside and stepping into all that we are because when we do, beautiful things happen. So although I am sad to end this chapter of my reign I am excited because this is just the beginning of what more is to come for making a difference. It's about leaving a legacy and making an impact and I'm excited for what’s to come with the non profit I have just founded, The Bloom & Grace Project.
Thank you to my amazing sponsors this year including @couturebeautysalem , @powderincbeauty , @allengabrielmd and most of all, God. Life is such a gift, don't live with the "what ifs", but instead step into all that you are and Bloom. You are a Queen.
