Interview: Miss Virginia Beach Melissa Matis
As a part of my year as Miss Virginia for America, my plan is to highlight the amazing system and sisterhood that I've been honored to be a part of. In doing this, I am hosting an interview series with my sister queens in Virginia and across the country to discuss their platforms, the value that pageants bring to our communities and our lives as women, and this awesome system we are a part of.
In today's interview, I chat with my sister queen and our First Runner-up Miss Virginia for America, Melissa Matis! She's not just a beauty; she's one smart cookie. This boss babe talks to me about her first experience in a pageant, what it meant for her to be able to make an impact in the Veteran community with her local title, and what pageant weekend was like from her perspective. I can't wait for you to check it out!
