In 2013 I was crowned Miss Hawaii Teen USA 2013, the first African American woman to ever do so. I spent my year volunteering with various local organizations with a special focus on serving the military community.
As a host for the popular local cable show, Brown Bags to Stardom, I appeared on television weekly as well as toured O'ahu, judging and hosting various Public High School Talent Shows.
I placed in the Top 15 at Miss Teen USA at the beautiful Atlantis Resort in the Bahamas!
When I was crowned Miss Hawaii USA 2020, I again became the first African American woman to win the title.
As Miss Hawaii USA 2020, my goal was to promote effective communication. I expanded Time to Talk Hawaii - a program I founded in dedication to helping teens learn to communicate effectively and grow into confident young adults. When the pandemic hit, I transitioned to a virtual format and shared educational videos online with the intention of reaching a wider audience.
After connecting with Honolulu County Council Chair, Tommy Waters, I was invited to partner with Youth for O'ahu. Together, we successfully promoted Ballot Measure 2 in the 2020 election. It passed and established the first ever Honolulu City Youth Commission!
In July of 2020, in light of the Black Lives Matter Movement and George Floyd protests, I launched the Hawaii for Juneteenth coalition. With the coalitions support, I led the Hawaii State Legislature to pass a law recognizing Juneteenth as an Official Day of Remembrance in the State of Hawaii. Our law passed just 24 hours before President Biden signed the Federal Bill! I am proud to have ended my pageant journey by placing in the Top 10 at Miss USA!
