Mission
    To create a sisterhood of young ladies who, through hard work and
    dedication, aspire to reach levels of academic and social excellence,
    while developing as local ambassadors and leaders.

Objective
    To guide the young ladies in this growth process of improving their
    interpersonal communication skills, their ability to articulate their
    ideas, showcase their talent, and present their own unique style,
    while representing the Florida Azalea Festival Pageant with dignity
    and honor.

Focus
    Through classes and workshops, we build a confident, disciplined,
    responsible, intellectual and persistent generation of youth who seek
    to impact their community in a positive way by developing their
    own self worth.
Linda graduated from the University of
Tennessee Center of Health Sciences

her life. Settling into life in Florida,

participants in any way they need or
want to become better contributing
members of their family and community.
