What lead to your decision to get involved with pageants?
I started pageants because of Mercy. After years of volunteering, I wanted to do more, and a friend of mine in the pageant world told me how many people I could impact if I were to be a titleholder. I had the opportunity to speak to 36,000 people face to face in my first year. Since then, I have continued and share about Mercy Multiplied wherever I go! I currently hold the title for National Elite Mrs. 2019.
Why do you love and support Mercy?
I could relate to Mercy because of my own issues as a child and wanted to be there for a young woman the way I needed someone to be for me. Every time I see a girl healed, I also heal. Watching all these young women’s stories unfold is beautiful, and everything Mercy does is so heavily focused on the Spirit. Immediately when you walk in the doors, it’s like a wall of God’s presence. I have gotten to connect with graduates and disciple them afterward, and it brings me so much joy. Every time I volunteer, I dig deeper into my own healing.
