“I am excited to announce that I was crowned Miss New Jersey International 2013 on Saturday, March 9 where I represented Hoboken in the platform based pageant held in East Brunswick, NJ.

I will spend my year as Miss New Jersey International promoting my platform, Celiac Disease Awareness.  One in 133 people have Celiac Disease which is an autoimmune disorder where a person is unable to digest a protein called gluten.  Gluten is in wheat, rye and barley and commonly found in foods like pizza, pastas, cookies, cakes and other processed foods.  As Miss New Jersey International, I will work to raise awareness for Celiac Disease because living with non-diagnosed Celiac Disease can lead to other autoimmune disorders, infertility, cancer and other health issues.

From July 22 to 28th, I will compete for the title of Miss International in Chicago, IL.  From previous awareness events and volunteer work, I was named a Celiac Awareness All-Star by the National Foundation of Celiac Awareness for my efforts to raise awareness for Celiac Disease.

As I prepare to compete for the national pageant, I will work even harder in the New Jersey community to raise awareness for Celiac Disease as well as volunteer with the American Heart Association, the pageant’s cause of choice.”
