So grateful to officially be a forever Miss Chicago. The past two years have been absolutely life changing. Thank you so much to my parents, friends, and family for the continuous prayers and support and to all of the Miss Chicago sponsors, this experience would be impossible without you. To my directors, Lacy Cloud Crawford and Jason A. Pica II, you guys have been phenomenal directors. Together we pivoted, shifted, redirected, and reimagined what it means to carry on with the opportunities, experiences, and expectations of Miss Chicago.

After much prayer, and conversation with family, friends, and mentors, I have made the very conscious decision to take full advantage of the opportunity and compete for the title of Miss Windy City on Saturday, Jan 15th.

Once again, thank you so much for everything and I am looking forward to this next journey.

Officially signing off,
Monica Niá Jones, Miss Chicago 2020
