I was crowned Miss Teen Maryland International in 2012. My platform was Girl Power: Girl Scouts of America. As a titleholder, I traveled around Maryland encouraging girls to get involved in service and Girl Scouts. I was the spokesperson for GSCNC for one year. I also become a Public Relations intern at GSCNC. Currently, I am Girl Scout of Greater Atlanta Volunteer and a Girl Scout Life-Long Member
This year I had the wonderful experience of sitting on the other side of the table. I was a Pre-teen and Junior Teen judge! Believe me when I say this was not an easy task. All the contestants had such great personalities and the level of energy from the audience was GREAT! Congratulations to all the new titleholders!
I had the opportunity to volunteer for this wonderful event hosted by The Coretta Scott King Young Women’s Leadership Academy! I was able to be apart of the fuel up station serving Heart Health snacks after the one mile walk! This event also had several vendors including Girl Scouts of Greater Atlanta, Live chefs and other wellness related vendors! This event provided FREE health and wellness resources. As you guys may know my school( Spelman College) has launched a huge health and wellness revolution program. so I was extremely excited to spread my knowledge about the importance of wellness.

October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month, This is social issue that is very important to me. After many years ,I have finally found the courage to Speak up and Speak out about my domestic violence experience, I realized that I was blaming myself which allowed me to accept being mistreated. This whole experience lead me to my career path, I would like to purse a career in Clinical Forensic Psychology. I plan to work with a variety of aspects of the justice systems, working with inmates to understand the thought process before committed crimes like domestic violence, murder and rape specifically. I believe in resilience and after this experience I have gained a strong sense in self and created a long term goal.
Domestic Violence; It’s EVERYBODY’S Business.
Please join us in supporting Domestic Violence Awareness Month
I am thrilled to begin my journey with the Girl Scouts of Greater Atlanta!
Today, I had the opportunity to represent Girl Scouts as I participated in a panel with members from Innovation Center for U.S. Dairy. We discussed the Forever Green program and sustainability! The Innovation Center was founded by dairy pro…ducers in 2008 as a way to help the dairy industry work together on issues and opportunities that affect the entire industry, but are too big for any one company or segment of the supply chain to tackle alone. It represents leading dairy producer and processor organizations who are working together pre-competitively to develop shared strategies and insights that can help the entire dairy industry.
