A native of the great city of Gonzales, and the proud daughter of Keeley and Beth Robert, it is my honor to report to my hometown, as your Ms. Louisiana United States 2015, on my experience in Washington, D.C. competing for the prestigious title of Ms. United States.

Gathered together in our nation’s capital, 50 delegates from across our beautiful country traveled to compete for this respected and well-deserving title. Bringing my southern charm and spicy personality, I am confident to say that I left a sweet Louisiana mark on the historic city.

It was a long week of rehearsals and preliminary competition where I competed in runway, sponsored by the talented, international designer MacDuggal; swimsuit by Vizcaya Swimwear and interview and evening gown.

The Miss United States Organization (MUSO), directed by Chris Wilmer, has been voted in the Top three pageants nationwide, following right behind Miss USA and Miss America.

The MUSO is progressively growing larger year after year. The organization prides itself on a solid commitment to uphold the standards of fairness and integrity for their queens and state title holders. MUSO separates itself from other pageant systems by giving young women of several age groups the opportunity to represent and support what they stand for.

For myself, the Ms. category gave me that chance to enter back into pageantry and continue to do what I love – supporting local foundations around our community, and the opportunity to use my title to magnetize those groups and be their spokesperson.

Hosting the event was Stephen Roddy, CEO and Founder of Pageant Planet and Jessica Black, a former Miss United States Queen. On the final night of competition, I finished in the Top 5 where I placed 4th runner up. I was extremely elated and proud to have represented Louisiana so well.

I would like to personally thank everyone who has supported me throughout my journey to prepare for this competition, including my family and friends; state director Aya Dunkin; coaches Brian Applewhite and Chris Cerullo and my Louisiana United States family.
