Just wanted to update you guys on some exciting stories that have come out! Take a look:


I just found out I won best gown of 2011 per The Pageant Planet blog!! (
The baby pink gown I wore was a Sherri Hill styled by La Casa Hermosa.
You know how they say things happen for a reason, well I have (a now) funny story about the gown... I actually got it the night before competition!! I was having another gown made. It was not completed in time so frantically the week of the Miss Maryland USA 2012 competition, I called Robin Flemming from La Casa Hermosa and we agreed on the Sherri Hill I won in! It was a wild ride that now makes for a good story for as most of you know, girls usually get their gowns months in advance!
Thank you Pageant Planet for this wonderful honor! Thank you to Sherri Hill for your design! and a big thank you to La Casa Hermosa for stepping in last minute!

See the gown and my winning moment:

The Meriwether Foundation

My non-profit continues to grow and receive support all over the country. The week I won Miss Maryland USA, I was invited to War Memorial Hospital in West Virginia and the hospital administrators gifted my 501 (c) (3) international non-profit, The Meriwether Foundation, with clothing, scrubs and medical supplies! All the donations will be shipped to our many medical, community, educational and agricultural projects in now 5 countries of Southern Africa. We are looking for holiday donations to help offset shipping costs! To help out please visit the Meriwether Foundation facebook page(!/pages/MERIWETHER-FOUNDATION/135384349821483) and click "Give Now" or contact us at All donations are 100% tax deductible and every penny will be sent to help our projects. Thank you!!


UCLA Women's Volleyball

The Bruins are in the NCAA National Championship final!! They actually play tonight so good luck to the lady Bruins! The last time the team did so well was in 2006 when I was a senior and we made it to the NCAA Final Four. The Volleywood blog asked me to write a little something to the Bruins!
