Highland Village resident Aloria Prince is making the most of her new title.
Prince, 16, was recently crowned Miss Fort Worth Teen 2012. Her platform was the importance of volunteerism, and she walks the walk.
Her first major event as Miss Fort Worth Teen was to serve those in need at the Annual Mobile Soup Event at the Dallas Hyatt Regency benefiting the homeless in Dallas on Christmas Eve.
She recently read aloud to students in the Ft. Worth ISD and played the piano for residents and their families at Colonial Gardens Alzheimer Center in Ft Worth.
During the Miss Fort Worth Outstanding Teen competition – a sister company to the Miss America Organization – Prince competed in interview, fitness, talent (jazz dance), evening gown and on-stage questions, and received the highest score in the judges’ interview phase.
“I felt so honored to have been crowned Miss Fort Worth Teen. I also believe it not only to be an honor but a responsibility and privilege to represent the city of Fort Worth and my hometown of Highland Village/Flower Mound,” said Prince.
On the home front, Prince stays busy with a remarkable number of activities.
A junior at Marcus High School, Prince is involved in the Marquette Drill Team, serving as a Junior Lieutenant Officer; English Honor Society and Black History Club.
She has participated in the Lewisville school district’s anti-bullying campaign and serves as a mentor/tutor at Rockbrook Elementary School.
Prince is active in her church, Westside Baptist, as a praise and worship song leader, choir member, youth usher and praise dancer.
She began volunteering at Community Christian Action as a medical assistant last summer and has had the opportunity to be one of the lead actors in the Lewisville Community Theater Production of “Crowns”.
Prince was recently selected as one of the featured dancers in her school’s musical “South Pacific”. She spends her “extra” time studying piano and voice.
“I look forward to being able to share my platform with others on the importance of volunteerism and use my position to help those in need. I’m grateful for the opportunity,” said Prince.
Prince will represent Fort Worth at the Miss Texas Outstanding Teen Pageant in June.
