AHHH! We're thrilled to say that we trained two fantastic young ladies for the title of Miss Teen USA 2013 and both made it into the top 15 during this year's Miss Teen USA competition! Pageantology girls, Samantha Neyland (Miss HI Teen USA) and Cassidy Wolf (Miss CA Teen USA) were super confident on stage and represented their states exceptionally well!
The icing on the Pageantology cake was when Cassidy went on to win the title! She's our newly crowned Miss Teen USA 2013 and we couldn't be any prouder of this extraordinary young woman who was already making strides in CA and empowering people everywhere through "Cassidy's Voice". After being cyber stalked through her webcam on her laptop earlier this year, Cassidy began educating the public about cyber bullying and taking precautions to avoid being victims of cyber crimes. She took a terrifying experience (which is still under investigation) and turned it into a platform to empower others. We're all so proud of the fact that she's authentic and continues to embody what a beauty queen truly is. We hope one day that you'll get to meet Cassidy in person and see what a lovely, caring and sweet person she is. Yes, we mentored Cassidy, but in the end it was Cassidy alone who went up on that Miss Teen USA stage and brought that crown to CA! Yeah Cass!!!
And just for fun, we thought we'd share some photos of our training with both Cassidy and Samantha, who was in HI so we did our session with her via Skype. Do you recognize the beauty sitting at the end of the table during Cassidy's mock interview session here in CA? It's Kristen Dalton, Miss USA 2009! We ask our fellow Miss USAs and Miss Teen USAs to join us for mock interview training whenever they're available (bonus for the trainee!). On this day, Cassidy trained with not 2 but 3 former Miss USAs which is pretty awesome! Also in the gallery are photos of Shandi and I FREAKING OUT when Cassidy was announced Miss Teen USA. We're proud pageant mentors! Click on the below photo to see the others:
