2nd Runner Up at Miss DC USA

Last night at the Miss District of Columbia USA pageant, I did what I always do. I shined on stage. I gave the competition my all in every phase – there couldn’t have been, and wasn’t, any better.

I’m proud of myself for taking on a completely new pageant system, with new rules and new expectations. And I took 2nd runner up!

Thank you to those who came to support me. I can’t express how much it means to me to have an audience that appreciates me. As always when I’m on stage, I enjoyed every minute!

What does this pageant mean for me? Not much, really. I’m still Miss District of Columbia 2006, and I had a chance at Miss America. And I said I was going to have a hand in making D.C. a sexy, sophistictated city… I will.
