“Faith is taking the first step even when you don't see the whole staircase.” -Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
These words have really resonated with me this year as my life has changed dramatically and I’ve had to make many defining decisions. From entering my first pageant to moving to DC for school to becoming Miss Texas Teen USA, my faith was tested while my journey was unclear. However, one thing I can say is that whatever is in God’s plan will happen whether it aligns with my own goals or not. I’m extremely grateful for his will, how he’s used me through it, and how it’s given me both happiness and clarity in the process.

Today we honor Dr. King for how he impacted our country as a servant, activist, man of faith, and visionary. His ideologies, sacrifices, and work have played vital roles in establishing a more equal world for us to live in. It is his blind acts of faith that have opened so many doors for me and my peers. Today I reflect on how grateful I am for the right to follow my dreams and achieve greatness without the color of my skin being a problem. Furthermore, I am grateful for the opportunity to continue the effort to break racial barriers as the 1st African American woman to hold the title of #MissTexasTeenUSA. It is important to me that I send the message to all young girls across the state of Texas that there is not a singular standard of beauty that you must adhere to. Your skin, your culture, your differences are beautiful in every way. Like I said in my crowning post on my personal page, “while I may be the first, I won’t be the last.” Thank you, Dr. King and the plethora of other activists who have fought for equality to make dreams attainable! Thank you for walking by faith when the path was unclear and encouraging everyone to do so as well. ✨
