Hello my name is Elizabeth Friedrich. I was born and raised in Fort Collins, Colorado. I was recently selected for Miss Teen Colorado. I feel that this beauty pageant will give me the confidence and skills for everyday life. I am a very adventurous person and beautiful. This will be my first challenge that I have taken as a young woman. How I feel about being selected has given me self-confidence even if I do not win. If I were able to gather the funds for this once in a lifetime experience. I would be grateful and be able to take this learning experience with me for the rest of my life. I would need the funds because my family is not able to pay for that pageant due to financial struggles. The funding would be very much appreciated. This would be my first beauty pageant, and I know I am willing to work hard and be prepared to win. I will need $200 on 02/26/16 for my first payment of registration. The next payment is due on March 25, 2016 for $300. There is a final payment that is due on April 22, 2016.
