Social media and graphic design Lead
Photographs are the best souvenirs. They are personal, beautiful, and have a story behind them. I have enjoyed putting my photography hobby to excellent use by capturing each special moment for every contestant. I love being able to capture a memory that they can have forever. Each contestant had always had such an amazing range of love and emotion. Many of them see the world differently, and often express more love and emotion than most people I come in contact with on a daily basis. Being able to capture that is both a fantastic photographic challenge and a profound learning experience. That is why I choose to be a part of the Miss Amazing organization.

Dyamond fills the role of Judges Chair and our External Media Lead. She brings an unparalleled expertise in both fields of the pageant world to South Carolina Miss Amazing. We are so fortunate to have Dyamond as part of our team.
FUNDRAISING DEVELOPMENT AND DONATIONS
After seeing the interview of the founder of Miss Amazing, I was hooked! I knew those wonderful girls were out there because I taught them. As a special education teacher of 20 years, it has been great to see that our girls have some of the same opportunities to stand out in the crowd. It was easy to get involved because I only had to send an email to become part of the fun! What a great opportunity it has been! The love and support from the parents and community volunteers has made it all worthwhile. I feel blessed that I am part of this wonderful event
My journey with Miss Amazing began as a onetime volunteer to assist my daughter’s school. Soon after, I was invited to assist with the planning. The behind the scene planning has provided the opportunity to work with some wonderful volunteers; allowing us to ensure the SC Miss Amazing day will be an extraordinary event for all who join. I am delighted in assisting an organization that allows girls and woman an opportunity to shine in their own light! It truly is Amazing to see the contestants interact allowing their personalities to out shine their disabilities.
PROCUREMENT AND QUEEN’S GIFT LEAD
The best part of being involved with SCMA? It’s watching our participants being nervous to talk with the judges, only to emerge more confident in themselves afterward. It’s watching shy young ladies burst with pride after leaving hair and makeup, ready to take the stage with their buddy and right hand man... knowing they truly look amazing. It’s watching them grow over the years to feel that way every day, not just on pageant day. I’ve volunteered with my school district’s school for children with advanced special needs for more than 10 years. They do wonderful work. But our entrants develop a level of confidence in themselves that is rare and unique. Watching this transformation is why I choose to be a part of SCMA.
EVENT PROCUREMENT AND QUEEN’S GIFT
I joined SCMA to celebrate girls and young women like my sister, who’s talents are not immediately evident or are over-shadowed by their limitations. I have a Masters of Social Work and chose that field because I believe everyone has a special something to share for a greater good. My favorite part of SCMA has been watching how participants grow in confidence year to year. I have seen girls go from shy wall flowers, reluctant to walk onto stage, to confident young ladies willing to speak and perform on stage. SCMA is about helping those with additional obstacles become strong advocates for themselves and others. Miss Amazing is a celebration of abilities.
