Contestant's Statement

Miss Lauderdale County USA is competition bound!! The big event is less than 10 days away and today is the first day of the social media challenge!! On April 1 and April 2 at the Pearl River Resort in Choctaw, MS, I will walk out onto the stage representing the most amazing community in the state.

It has been an amazing experience representing my community as Miss Lauderdale County USA. To my family, friends, and supporters I do not have enough words to express how truly grateful to God I am for placing each one of you in my life. I am so overwhelmed by your generosity, your kindness, your encouragement, and completely humbled by your many prayers. Again, thank you for everything and I promise to try my hardest to make you proud.

“You were born for such a time as this.” (Esther 4:14). This is a scripture that my mom has quoted to me so frequently in my life through the good times and the bad times. Regardless of the outcome, the reassurance that this promise provides remains unchanging. It is my dream, my hope, and my prayer to become your new Miss Mississippi USA!!

It would mean the world to me to have every last one of you sitting in the audience during the competition. I could not have gotten this far without you. Let’s finish this thing together!

Must Read

Proverbs 31: 25 - She is clothed with strength and dignity, and she laughs with out fear of the future. 
Proverbs 3: 5-6 - Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to Him, and he will make your paths straight. 
As I took this photo, these two scriptures played again and again in my head. This photo was taken right after I had just finished interviewing for a job I had dreamed of for my entire life, Miss MS USA 2022. These scriptures reminded me not only was there no need to worry about what was going to happen later on that weekend, but also to trust God with every fiber of my being, and he will place me on the path made just for me in His divine timing. This picture reminds me of just how strong, resilient, and powerful I truly am, which is why I have chosen it to be my official headshot for Miss Mississippi USA 2023
