Alexa Jones, Miss Orange County Teen Regional, Wins Miss California Teen USA 2012 Title, After Father’s Tragic Death.
Miss Orange County Teen Regional 2012, Alexa Jones, 18, swapped crown as the new Miss California Teen USA 2012 in front of 117 contestants from all over California. The crowd gave such a loud cheer for Alexa Jones as she gave the most amazing answer to her final question, giving tears of joy to everyone.
This is not an easy year for Alexa in spite of attending numerous community services and appearances for Orange County. One afternoon, while spending some training time with her Pageant Director, Giselle Boone, she received a very difficult news that her father was involved in a car accident. Alexa and her Mom drove to their house immediately and on their way home, they received word that her father indeed passed away from the accident.
Alexa became an inspiration to so many teens who lost a love one as she spoke of not giving up and losing hope, remembering that it is not your fault and that you should work hard and follow your dreams, making your special family member the inspiration, and that’s what Alexa did.
Alexa is a communication major at University of California in San Marcos. Alexa will forever be in the book as the first Teen from Orange County to ever win the title Miss California Teen USA 2012 since 1983.
Alexa will travel and compete at the Miss Teen USA 2012 in the Bahamas. Alexa Jones was trained by her Executive Director, Giselle Boone and OC Pageant Coach Gina Simms.
