Jackson State University alum Kristy Johnson was recently named Miss Black Mississippi U.S. Ambassador by the Miss Black U.S. Ambassador Organization.
The Miss Black U.S. Ambassador and Miss Black Teen U.S. Ambassador Scholarship Pageant, LLC, in partnership with the GE Institute Foundation Inc., exists to give a once in a life time opportunity for young African American women to serve as an ambassador of change and to encourage, empower and enlighten, communities states and nations.
These young women are a rising voice in the community that seek to make a difference by providing educational forums and events that focus on health disparities, poverty, violence and major issues plaguing the African-American community. They are a role model not only to young African American women, but to women around the world. They partner with key political figures and national initiatives to bring support to their efforts and platforms. These young women are more than a pretty face, and the program is more than a competition. It’s a program that gives 365 days of support and resources to communities in need. The program is a platform for today’s savvy, smart and aware, young women of color to express their viewpoints, extraordinary talents and accomplishments to the national public, while offering scholarships opportunities to further education.
In July 2014 in Atlanta, Ga., the current Miss Black U.S. Ambassador, Jazmine Scroggins and the GE Institute Inc., will host 53 Teen and 53 Miss young ambassadors from ages 14-28. Attendees will witness the most educated, talented, beautiful ambassadors the United States has to offer, while enjoying exciting events that benefit the community. The pageant is produced by a professional and dynamic team that has over 60 years of pageant experience combined, and they are ready to have you experience “Beauty Redefined.”
