2/24/17-2/25/17 Voices of Hope and Jacksonville Science Festival

Posted by Teens Go Green on February 25, 2017 at 5:35 PM Comments comments (0)

In one weekend I've gone to four different cities North, South, and Central Florida. The first day I woke up at 2am preparing for my two speeches and packing for my trip to Jacksonville. But this was before my 6:30am modeling job in Boca Raton. So I had to leave Miami at around 4:30am because the traffic really is THAT bad, to later drive back to the airport to head to Jacksonville. As soon as I landed in Jacksonville, I got an Uber to Jacksonville University and prepped for my speech that ni...

12-15-16 Seasons Greetings in CATA

Posted by Teens Go Green on December 16, 2016 at 1:05 PM Comments comments (0)

The holidays are near, and if you don't know me, you must learn that I LOVE the spirit of giving that Christmas and the holidays bring.

Since 2009, my mother and I bring our Miracle titleholders to drop off toys to Arnold Palmer Hospital around Christmas time for Santa's workshop. Many kids have to stay in the hospital during Christmas, but Santa makes sure on Christmas morning each child receives a sack full of goodies that are personalized to their liking.

I wanted to wear some...

10-22-16 Central Florida Vegetarian fest in Silver Needle & Thread

Posted by Teens Go Green on October 23, 2016 at 12:20 AM Comments comments (4)

It's so crazy to imagine that I have been involved with the Central Florida Vegetarian Festival and Earth Day since I was 14 years old. That means it has been eight years I have been with them whether I'm setting up a vendor table for Teens Go Green, hosting carnival games to raise funds for SPLASH, speaking at the youth panel, or one of my favorites, putting together the Project Green Project Runway fashion show.

Models will showcase their eco outfits on the green carpet, and followin...

7-22-2016: CATA in an office environment

Posted by Teens Go Green on July 23, 2016 at 7:30 PM Comments comments (0)

Wearing CATA is not only great for volunteer activities, pageant appearances, and fancy parties, but it is also good to wear in the office while interning for the Orange County Environmental Protection Division!

Working in an office means you have to adjust your typical Florida clothing to long hours in air-conditioning. So for me, a cropped cardigan was perfect with my mint green silk d...

7-21-2016: Taking the Glamorously Green Queens to Clean the World!

Posted by Teens Go Green on July 21, 2016 at 8:25 PM Comments comments (0)

I can't believe last year I competed in this very pageant and all the opportunities that were held ahead of me. That year, I was honored to place with the elements title US Miss Earth Eco, but it led me to the opportunity of a lifetime representing the USA in Taiwan, and following that competing in Australia only a few weeks ago. I can't believe I did two international pageants in that time span. Even while representing my state of Florida I was able to begin my eco-fashion journey with

June 26-July 11: Australia! The trip of a lifetime in CATA!

Posted by Teens Go Green on July 11, 2016 at 7:20 PM Comments comments (0)

I've dreamt of going to Australia since I was about 8 years old, and I can't believe I was actually able to do it. In the best way possible, competing in Australia's first international pageant. Those two weeks were truly an experience of a lifetime. Visiting places that took my breath away like the Sydney Opera House (you can ask any contestant,every time I saw or heard about it I would scream), La Perouse golf course, under the harbor bridge, Sydney Olympic Park, and so much more. Although ...
