The purpose of The Miss Black Houston program is to give young women the chance to achieve their personal and professional goals all while helping their community. As a contestant of the Miss Teen Black Houston, I would like to focus on creating more programs for young black girls to learn about the game of golf and how it can benefit them in the future. I would personally make appearances at different organizations promoting black girls in any subject, so I can show them that there are other opportunities out there that not many people think about.
Legacy: I want to be known as the Miss Teen Black Houston leader, who changed the thinking of young black females, and as a person who gave them an opportunity to see other pathways their life’s can go. I would love to give other black girls the chance to work not only on themselves, but also on the community around them. I have been fortunate enough to have great female role models and I plan to carry the tradition forward. I want to be the teen, who can show the world that social standards cannot hold anyone back from anyone’s aspirations.
