I have recently been crowned Miss Jr. Teen Syracuse/Binghamton. I am very honored and blessed to be the one holding the crown and representing Syracuse/Binghamton and the North Country. Such and amazing experience and I am looking forward to the upcoming year. I received the letter in the mail for the pageant out of the blue. My mom and I had no idea how i got entered into the pageant. I was super ecstatic when I opened the letter because I have always wanted to model, be in pageants, and act. I went to the interview and got accepted for the pageant contestant number 53. I competed in a personal interview, casual wear, and formal wear categories. It was a surprise to be chosen by the Syracuse/Binghamton Judges as 2014 Miss Jr. Teen Syracuse/Binghamton. A huge thank you to all of my previous sponsors."
