I was five years old when I realized my dream of becoming Miss Texas. I can still remember the feeling I used to get as I got my pillow and sleeping bag to lay on the floor alongside my sisters and watch the pageant every year. While I knew the Miss America Organization was something special, I had no idea what it would mean to me as I grew older.
The Miss America Organization is the largest provider of scholarships for young women. Each year, thousands of dollars in scholarships are given to the women who participate. These women go on to be doctors, lawyers, educators, and so much more. For me, the scholarships that I earn through this organization are going towards my dream of becoming a speech-language pathologist. With the scholarships that I have gained, I will graduate from Texas A&M University in May and be on my way to pursue a master's degree.
Aside from the scholarships, the Miss Texas Organization has changed my life in a multitude of ways. When I first began competing, I was a shy, insecure 13-year-old who hated being so much taller than all of her friends. I could hardly get two words out of my mouth in front of people without stumbling. I would shrink when I walked into a room in hopes that people wouldn't notice me. The personal growth that I have accomplished through competing in the Miss Texas organization is astounding. I can now confidently speaking in front of people, I am an advocate for suicide prevention, I have testified for legislation at the Texas Capitol, and I have had the opportunity to mentor some amazing little girls through the Lone Star Princess Program.
By purchasing an Ad in the competition magazine, you are providing women like me with the opportunity to not only win scholarships but to experience the personal and professional development this organization provides. Thank you so much for supporting me on my journey to Miss Texas 2020! I appreciate your support more than words can express!
Each year, the Miss Texas Organization is proud to present the Miss Texas Competition Magazine. This magazine is made available for advertisement by businesses, families and volunteers who want to promote their company, show support and wish their competing candidate Good Luck by purchasing a Magazine Showcase Page.
Our magazine is seen by tens of thousands across the nation, is sold all year long and is a popular coffee table accessory that may be viewed through out the year. Each candidate competing for the job of Miss Texas or Miss Texas' Outstanding Teen, sets a goal of how many magazine showcase pages she wants dedicated just to her. Thank you in advance for your support.
