Miss Deaf Texas, Sericia Jackerson will be competing in the Miss Deaf America pageant during July 2-July 7, 2012. We are seeking financial assistance to send Sericia & her team to Louisville, KY for the Miss Deaf America finals. It will be the last year to do this competition after 40 years. The National Association of the Deaf (NAD) Miss Deaf America Ambassador Program (MDAAP) showcases young deaf women ambassadors from our great nation. NAD Miss Deaf America is more than just a title — she reflects a tradition of empowerment, advocacy, and dedication.
Young women are transformed into tomorrow’s leaders when they are crowned as winners of their state competitions. These women bring their talents to the national stage during the Biennial NAD Conference where they display their vision and passion for advocacy on behalf of deaf and hard of hearing Americans. The work of NAD Miss Deaf America, and state contestant winners have inspired thousands of starry-eyed young deaf girls.
Upon being crowned, NAD Miss Deaf America travels throughout the country during her two-year reign, reaching out to diverse members of the deaf and hard of hearing community to support her ideals, committed to helping others. As Sericia’s Director, I hope that you will reach out and help Sericia make this trip possible. You may make donations in Sericia’s name on this website: http://www.missdeaftexas.com .
