2012 National American Miss Jr. Teen Queen Alexandra Wallace looks back on her year of service!

Wow. What a crazy but fun year I had as the 2012 National American Miss Tennessee Jr. Teen. I am so excited to share with you all some of my favorite memories throughout this year. When my name was called I was in shock. I remained completely composed however until I saw Anna and remembered what a great group of sister’s I’d have to reign with. It was that moment when I started to cry and couldn’t compose myself for pictures after. There truly are no words to describe my national’s experience. I made some amazing friends and caught up with old ones. From crazy rehearsals, our day in Disney, and competitions we always had a great time. I even met my personal favorite Disney character Winnie the Pooh! I was able to help at Anna Grace’s queens for a cure charity pageant in October. She did a fantastic job and it was awesome to see and catch up with the other queens she had present, including Miss Tennessee Teen USA Emily Suttle. I participated in the Jingle Bell Run walk for arthritis by passing out water cups to the runners and met the governor with my fellow sister queens! However, the greatest blessing throughout this year has been furthering my platform, the American Heart Association. I spoke at various elementary schools throughout my area on the importance of keeping active and healthy through the Jump Rope for Heart program. I spoke at the state capitol and met with my local representative and senators as a high level advocate. My favorite event however was the Red Out in my high school. This was something new this year and as a school we raised 3750 for the AHA! It was so cool to see my classmate working for a cause so near to my heart. As mentioned earlier, I was truly blessed with a great group of sister queens. Ava, Taylor, Anna Grace, and Sarah what a privilege it was to reign with each of you. You all brought smiles to my face and I am so thankful for each of you. I know you will all go far wherever life takes you. I’d like to say thank you to my family; Mom, Richard, Taylor, Granny and Tate for always being my biggest support system. You all mean the world to me and I love you all. Most importantly I’d like to thank God for this amazing opportunity. This year would not have been possible without his many blessings. To the girls competing be yourself and have the time of your life! You are all beautiful and winners and I can’t wait to meet all of you. Best of luck!!

2009 National American Miss Tennessee Pre-Teen Queen Alexandra Wallace Farewell

Dear Contestants,

First off, congratulations on being a state finalist.  What an honor!  This weekend has a lot in store, from rehearsals to competitions and even a party.  Get to know the other contestants and make new friends. I can’t wait to meet each and every one of you this weekend!

Nationals were amazing.  While I was honored to be second runner up, one of the funnest things we did was tour Hollywood.  And what fun we had at crazy themed rehearsals!

As you compete this weekend, never forget to have a smile on your face and your shoulders held back. No matter what the outcome this weekend I know God has a plan for each and every one of you. While at times it might be hard to know this, it’s very true.  We must be patient and wait. Remember this weekend is but one step along the path God has chosen for you.

My sincere wish for each of you is that you will make memories that you can share all your life. I hope you know you are a winner simply for being here, so hold your head high and take with you experiences that will help shape you into the person you can be.

In God’s love,

Alexandra Wallace
