A message from Ayana Johnson: I competed in the Miss Virginia’s Outstanding Teen competition and won my state title a few weeks ago. I am excited to compete at Miss America’s Outstanding Teen in August. My crowning moment made history.
It has been 10 YEARS since the last African American Miss Virginia’s Outstanding Teen has been crowned. I am also the first sickle cell warrior to obtain the title of Miss VA’s OT. There is a lot that goes into getting me to Texas and competing in the national competition. I am organizing fundraisers and ways to donate to raise more scholarship money for MAOTEEN are [below.] All support is appreciated and encouraged. My nationals send off will be on my birthday and I would like for members of the church to attend [See invite below]. Thank you for your support.
