2. There are no words to explain how blessed I feel. First and foremost God is SO good. He truly gave me the desires of my heart tonight. I made history and became the 1st ever African American title holder in the state of Missouri ! (Moment of silence) Special thanks to my sponsors @gowngallery for my beautiful gown, @theheadshotcollection for my jewelry and @purcosmetics for my makeup. To my family and friends I love you so much and thank you for pushing me to keep going even when I was ready to give up and give in. Congrats to @sydstottlemyre and @dallasezard on a great year and congrats to my new sister queen @sophiadh ! My @vanbros family and the judges, I love you and thank you for changing my life. #MissMissouriUSA2017 #BayMissUSA #roadtomissusa @reneecbull #travelingcoach !
