34th place

Group Three

Vanessa Adora

I’m a fun, music-obsessed Mixed woman with a personality only slightly bigger than my hair.

Why would you like to win?

I want to show young, mixed girls that they are beautiful. When I was 10, I would get Seventeen magazine and flip to the Hair section praying for a black girl with curly hair and never found it. I’m here to represent!

What would you do with the money if you win?

With $10000, I would take my Mom to Paris because she has always wanted to go! She’s a single mom and deserves to see the world.
