Hi, I'm Miss Texas.

As Miss Texas, I advocate for my platform, Ya'll Means All. I aim to make every Texan feel at home through policy writing, diversity & inclusion school programs, digital representation, and my international nonprofit, The Tulong Foundation. I am the state wide and national ambassador for The Texas Cares for Children 501(c)(3).

$50,000 in Scholarships Won

I entered my first Miss Texas local competition with just $50 in my checking account. I needed money for law school. I wore an old prom school dress, borrowed a suit from my mom, and fundraised my registration fee through friends and family. One local later, I was hooked! If you are interested in competing, please don't hesitate to reach out by emailing me below.
