Miss Greater Cleveland/Cuyahoga County

This past weekend I competed at the Miss Greater Cleveland and Miss Cuyahoga County Pageant. I had a wonderful time getting to know all of the newer contestants and reconnecting with the girls I competed with last year. Congratulations to my good friend, Allison Goodwin, on winning Miss Cuyahoga County, and my new friend, Tera Coleman, on winning Miss Greater Cleveland!

This pageant season I have been making some changes that I'm pretty excited about:

Platform: I did change my platform to Habitat For Humanity. I love talking to people about the impact that this organization makes on communities and on people's lives whether it is new homeowners or the people who volunteer with the organization. I hope that people are able to see the passion that I have for Habitat for Humanity and I hope that I am inspiring them to get involved!

Evening Gown: I have a new evening gown which I am IN LOVE with. Last year I borrowed dresses from my Alpha Phi sisters, and I am so appreciative of their help and support through the whole process. A few weeks ago, I bought myself a dress so I wouldn't have to bug my wonderful sisters about borrowing their beautiful gowns. It's so nice to finally have a dress of my own that.

Talent: My talent last year was a jazz dance which I never really felt comfortable preforming so I knew that it was something I wanted to change, especially after my mishap at Sweeps back in March. I chose to do a ballet en pointe to "Senorita" by Bond this season. I really love the song as I feel that it shows off my more sassy and spicy side of my personality. Although I'm not a strong dancer (I've only been dancing for 5 years) and ballet en pointe is not my strongest form of dance, I really feel comfortable performing it on stage. I was so happy with the way it turned out at Miss Greater Cleveland/Cuyahoga County. I was so nervous about a Sweeps repeat and was so happy with myself that I didn't mess up or fall, haha.

Interview: I know I'm getting stronger in interview every time I do it, that is what I LOVE about the Miss America Organization and competing in pageants. It's all about self-development and creating a stronger you. I have been working on my interview with someone and I am so very grateful for all of her help over the past few weeks.

As you can see, I have been working hard on improving my skills and that is one of my favorite things about pageants- self development.

Up next is Miss North Coast on August 6th in Brunswick...

With Love,


Representin' Ashland University!

Miss Heart of Ohio, Alicia, and I
