Danielle Jean has been selected as a finalist for the Miss New York USA Pageant and has started an online campaign to raise $1,500 in sponsorship fees.
Her page reads:
Being a state finalist in itself is something that I am extremely proud of, and I hope to represent my town the best way that I can. Though this journey has been a little nerve racking, overall I loved the experience.
Thank you for those who have stood beside me with words of love and encouragement. It brings me great joy to know that I have so many people routing for me. I'm asking my fellow Facebook family if they can sponsor me in any way they can.
