Hello! Welcome to my support team for the Miss Naturally Crowned Carolina Pageant! 

I NEED YOUR HELP! Let me tell you why:

Co-founders Jessica E. Boyd & Maureen A. Ochola created Miss Naturally Crowned Carolina to celebrate the power and beauty of women who are unafraid to express themselves authentically and unapologetically. The pageant also provides a wide-reaching platform to promote positive images and dialogue about natural hair, while we also help celebrate a spirit of scholarship, entrepreneurship, and authenticity in our communities.

I am honored to have been selected as a contestant for Miss Naturally Crowned Carolina, Columbia, South Carolina's very first natural hair beauty pageant! On April 12, 2014, I along with 10 other contestants from Richland and Lexington counties, will compete for the title of Miss Naturally Crowned Carolina and a chance to win $1000 grand prize (non-equity) start up business investment. 

MISSION: Miss Naturally Crowned Carolina Pageant promotes positive images and dialog about afro-ethnic textured hair, while uplifting the beauty and the dreams of women who choose to wear it. 

It would be a truly amazing honor to represent the title of Miss Naturally Crowned Carolina! I embody what I feel to be the foundation of the title which is authenticity, positivity, and of course natural hair. I feel that the title also represents redefined beauty and self-acceptance. I know that I can best represent the title because I personify being bold but yet graceful which is the epitome of natural hair. Earning the title of Miss Naturally Crowned Carolina would allow me to help serve the community by encouraging everyone to see the beauty in themselves as well as their ambitions as being obtainable. The actual pageant has not yet taken place, but yet I was challenged to place action behind my goals. That is what representing the title is about! The title alone encourages everyone to believe we are all beautiful and capable of achieving our dreams. Society often mocks women, “Who do you think you are being bold, beautiful, and brilliant with breathtaking natural hair?” If selected to nobly uphold the esteemed title of Miss Naturally Crowned Carolina I would graciously respond by saying, “Women, who are we not to be bold, beautiful, and brilliant with breathtaking natural hair? We are amazing and we are destined to do incredible things!” I can best represent the title because I would challenge and support women in believing that they are diversely beautiful, intelligent, and capable beings.

“To accomplish great things, we must not only act, but also dream; not only plan, but also believe.” - Anatole France
