Is it worth it to join National American Miss?

Hey Nessa,

Is it worth it to join National American Miss? Absolutely! I have been involved with National American Miss since 2004 and when I look back at pictures from then to now its amazing to see how much I have truly grown since then. Not just physically but overall. The skills I have gained through the system have helped me tremendously now as a college student as well as for the future. These are skills I've learned throughout the years through being involved with this organization that will last me a LIFETIME.

Some skills I truly value in gaining through this system are my interview skills and speaking in front of others (which is the number one fear in America). As a college student going through the school interviews the admissions counselor have complimented my interview skills and how impressed they were to hear a young lady with such great interview skills, all which I credit to National American Miss. I carried over what I learned through the interview competition to real life settings such as college interviews and job interviews. Public Speaking is not an easy thing to do for a lot of people. As a communications student the personal intro competition has helped me become more confident in doing so- for college presentations or at events through my community. In the beginning I was a bit shy to do my personal intro and now I love it and I can assure you that you will too :) I am much more confident in speaking in front of people. I am also learning and constantly improving through the process which I truly do enjoy.

My family has instilled me the importance of giving back to your community, which National American Miss prides their contestants on being actively involved with. 10% of your score is community service which was one of the main reasons my family support National American Miss and have supported me throughout my entire experience. At National American Miss it really is a family event. During the formal wear competition you have an escort which my brother has always looked forward to escorting me for. You also meet families of all different cultures,ethnicities, and backgrounds. I am always ready to brag about having a huge network of friends throughout my state and country thanks to NAM. My family has always been very supportive of whatever adventure I choose to take on and they love that they can be very involved through this system as well.

At National American Miss it does not matter what color skin you have, or the color of your hair. I am 100% Puerto Rican and that was never an issue, in fact I am very actively involved in my hispanic community and use that to talk about in my interview competition and community service work. I embrace my ethnicity and am very proud of who I am. I love having the opportunity to share that with others and since you are proud to be Mexican others are going to love to hear about it as well and will accept you no matter what, especially at National American Miss.

As far as sponsorship, you can host a fundraiser, host a bake sale in your neighborhood, or even host a tag sale to raise some money for your sponsorship fee. I love baking and it has helped me raise money for something I really want to do through something I love doing-baking!You can actually raise a lot of money through a bake sale. There are so many options and you can never be to creative when it comes to raising sponsorship fees friends and family love to be a part of a new adventure so asking some friends and family usually works as well.

As the reigning National American Miss National Queen I plan on visiting a lot of state pageants and I hope I get the chance to meet you at your state pageant Nessa! If you have any questions you can send me a message on twitter and follow me throughout my reign at Good luck!

Love always,

Amaryllis Rodriguez

2010-2011 National American Miss National Queen

Black History month question?

Black History month question?

Yeah they should publicize the other minority's months, because it's be nice to learn about the histories of other races. Yeah they do have months for all minorities. Yeah Native American month(National American Indian Heritage Month) is in November. Asians got a month (Asian Pacific American History Month) it's in May. Hispanic Heritage Month is on September 15 - October 12. They even have months for white people like Greek-American Heritage Month, Irish-American Heritage Month (both in March), Jewish-American Heritage Month (in May), German-American Heritage Month, National Italian-American Heritage Month, and Polish-American Heritage Month (all in October). There even have National Tartan Day (Scottish-American) on April 6th. But they just aren't well-known. I still don't get why the others aren't talk about more often. I think they reason why Black History month is more popular than the rest is because of slavery, civil right movement, etc. people tend to forget about the other races. I think some people tend to think that hispanics just recently cross the border and Asians just recently got off the boat. I don't think a lot of people realizes that these people both here for awhile too. A continuous Hispanic presence in the territory of the United States has existed since the 16th century, earlier than any other group after the Native American. Asians been here since 1763 when Filipinos established the small settlement of Saint Malo in the bayous of current-day Louisiana after fleeing mistreatment aboard Spanish ships. Chinese first come to here(Hawaii) in 1778. Some Island-born Chinese can claim to be 7th generation.

So if you didn't want to read what I wrote up there pretty much what I'm saying is that every race deserve to have there history told not just black people. So maybe if more people become aware of the other heritage months, maybe they will become more well-known and have commericals for them and we have more people celebriting them.
