2015 Miss North Carolina Jr. Pre-Teen Faith Anne Yeley says farewell.

As I look back on this amazing journey, I have so many people to thank.  My parents, who have been my support system, my guiding light through every year in life and with NAM, I love you and could not thank you enough.  All my supporters and sponsors through the years who have been there every year, I could not have done it without you.  Everyone who encourages me to keep moving forward toward my dreams, I will continue to make you proud.  Through my foundation in the works “Keeping Faith” I will extend my journey beyond my NAM reign and continue to serve others in need.  From Bullies 2 the rescue a Bulldog rescue organization or help to raise money for Rett Syndrome with the Ella Foard Foundation. And I will always have a special place for the Ronald McDonald house of Charlotte.  I was first introduced to RMH through NAM and have built a wonderful relationship through service.  My family and I have served the RMH several times this year but one very special night was this past Christmas Eve, my parents and two friends cooked and served dinner and dessert to everyone in the RMH. It was a very heartwarming experience. I am thankful for all I am blessed with in life, I will remember this journey forever and all the friends I have made along the way.

“In order to succeed, we must believe that we can.”

With love,

Faith Anne Yeley

They served about 120 people and Jessica performed duties that involved food service and clean up with her friendly, sweet smile and ease of discussing different topics with our performers. At the appointed time, Jessica stood at the front door with the head usher, welcoming attendees to this very special and somber concert. Her presence and smiles provided such special qualities to those entering the church: hope for the future, welcoming as only a child can do with innocence and love. Jessica added such a specialness to this concert. Jessica performed these tasks with ease and comfort and great poise. She took direction well, understanding immediately what was being asked of her. Choir members, musicians and those attending the concert, were so taken with her. Jessica provided some salve to the wounds of the people of Charleston, something she didn’t even realize she did. The Choir was very grateful to this beautiful young lady and wish her great success in her future endeavors.
