Dream Team! Left to Right: Steven Grant (GrantFoto), Anna Cantu, Carly Moran (me!), Sheila Ybarra (Makeup by Sheila), Nancy Gonzalez Miss Texas USA 2017
There is only around 3 weeks until I compete for this dream title! There isn't much left to do to prepare. I'm ready now more than ever. This will hopefully be my lucky number 7 pageant. I have been the girl who hasn't placed. I have been the girl who makes the semi finals. I've been a runner up more times than I want to admit. Every pageant girl dreams of her crowning moment and one of my favorite crowning moments was from Miss Houston Teen 2016. Mary Frances Nance was probably one of the most dedicated contestants ever, She's one of the girls I look up too. I think a girls crowning moment says a lot. To me, Marys said "Finally". She worked really hard. I really mean it when I say that I have never cared more about a pageant. Miss Houston Teen 2018 is the hardest I have worked. As I think about the amazing team I have worked with and all the awesome people I have in my life and following my page. I can only describe this feeling as Grateful. I appreciate all the wonderful people in my life who have supported me in all my years of pageants, now more than ever. I cannot wait to promote my platform, rock the stage, and make all of you proud! Team Houston Forever.
