A warm and welcome word from your 2013 Miss North Carolina Jr. Teen Alexandria Murphy!

I was truly blessed to be crowned the 2013 Miss North Carolina Jr.Teen! This year is one I will never forget. I was fortunate to have been visiting royalty at some of the state pageants, spending time with my sister queens at open calls and workshop sessions throughout North Carolina.

Miss_North_Carolina_Jr.Teen_Alexandria_Murphy_with_my_state_director_Matt_LevertonI was truly blessed to be crowned the 2013 Miss North Carolina Jr.Teen! This year is one I will never forget. I was fortunate to have been visiting royalty at some of the state pageants, spending time with my sister queens at open calls and workshop sessions throughout North Carolina.

My volunteer opportunities consisted of the American Heart Association, Night the Light Cancer walk, the Little Elf Workshop, Dress for Success, the Ronald McDonald House, Learning Together, Halloween 5K Hustle, The Girls Rising event, and much more! These opportunities also afforded me the chance to meet the mayor of Raleigh, Mrs. Nancy McFarlane and the Governor of North Carolina, Mr. Pat McCrory.

Nationals was a blast! I met friends from all over the Unites States. The day at Disney, Hollywood, Universal Studios and window shopping on Rodeo drive are wonderful memories. I was fortunate to have placed in some optionals. Placing top 10 in the Nation was the icing on the cake and a wonderful blessing from God!

To all the girls competing: Good luck, be yourself, and have fun because the weekend will go by fast! You will have an amazing time and make friends for a lifetime! Make sure to never give up no matter what! This was my fourth try for the North Carolina state title! Just remember the words of Walt Disney: “If you can dream it, you can achieve it!” I am so excited to meet you and spend a great weekend together!

She also had the Prince of Monnaco waive to her from his car. It was a wonderful experience. She visited Florence, Italy, where Pinocchio was written as well as The Palace of Monacco, Monte Carlo, and the Leaning Tower of Pisa.

Alexandria assisted in judging the “Family Look Alike” contest, handing out trophies on stage, and assisting where needed all weekend. She enjoyed being there to congratulate Brittany Georgia, the new Wisonconsin Junior Teen Queen. Their flight was delayed leaving Wisconsin so they missed their original connecting flight back to North Carolina. United Airlines rolled our the red carpet and was waiting for them with a Mercedes to take them to their gate a the other side of the airport. Alexandria definitely received the royalty treatment! A great way to end an amazing weekend.
