“I acted more like a tomboy, and my mom wanted me to be more of a ‘girlie’ girl.”
That’s how Erica Crimm first got involved in pageants as a child, but it turned out that her mother had nothing to worry about.
Crimm went on to win numerous pageants and even competed for Miss Mississippi in 2007. Along the way, the recent Mississippi State graduate earned enough money to pay for her college.
“Many people don’t understand that pageants are a lot more than beauty contests,” Crimm said. “You have to be prepared for interviews, do community service and work to get sponsors. It has been very good for me over the years.”
Community service is Crimm’s favorite part. She enjoys visiting nursing homes and Blair Batson Children’s Hospital. -------for the rest of the story see The Yazoo Herald printed edition or subscribe to the Digital Edition.----------
