Pre-Teen and Teen Maryland International Pageant

This weekend I had the honor of judging the Miss Pre-teen and Teen Maryland International Pageant.  All of the contestants were amazing.  Judging is never easy, but this was by far the hardest pageant that I’ve ever had to judge.   The contestants were passionate about their platforms and dedicated to serving their communities.   This made the task at hand seem overwhelming.  After an electric onstage performance, Layilah Nasser was crowned Miss Teen Maryland International.  Indeya Campbell captured the audience’s hearts and the title of Miss Pre-Teen Maryland International. 

I also want to take a moment to say Thank You & Job Well-Done  to the outgoing titleholders, Margo Huffman and Lexi  Wakefield.  I have watched as Lexi has blossomed into a confident and engaging young lady.  Margo never ceases to impress me with her elegance and graciousness.  They have done an incredible job serving the state of Maryland and are true role M.O.D.E.L.S.  

Congratulations to the newest members of the International family!   Get excited, you all have an awesome year ahead! 




Best,

Ciji Dodds
