The National American Miss Pageant is based on inner beauty as well as poise and presentation. Its founders place emphasis on the importance of developing self-confidence, learning good sportsmanship, as well as setting and achieving personal goals. The national competition was divided into the following areas: community service and résumé, confidence and poise, personal introduction, as well as five individual interviews with the judges.
In addition to winning National All-American Princess, Skyla was crowned Queen of Mardi Gras in February at the Wake Forest Street Festival. She is the 2nd grade- level Spelling Bee winner at Thales Academy. Her extracurricular activities include Chess, Lego, and STEM Club. She is on the swim team, in intermediate gymnastics, plays piano, and is in musical theatre.
One of Skyla’s more important responsibilities as National All-American Princess is to be involved with and champion a charity of her choice. Her aspiration is to become the first female president!
