Miss Lumbee 2012-2013
I am honored to hold the title of Miss Lumbee 2012-2013. It has always been a dream! I give God all the praise and glory for allowing me this opportunity. I know without him nothing is possible. With dignity and pride I plan to serve and be the best role model and leader for not only the Lumbee tribe, but for our community as well. I am the twenty-four year old daughter of Timothy and Sandra Lewis and I reside in the Fairmont community.
From the wise words of an old Chinese Proverb. . .
“Tell me, I’ll forget. Show me, I’ll remember. Involve me, I’ll understand.”
Our youth are our future. It is our responsibility to ensure that we help them become successful. This year as Miss Lumbee it is my ultimate goal to use this proverb as a foundation for my platform “Teaching Today’s youth Success.” Jesus told us in his word, “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.” Therefore I am doing just that! I know through him all things are possible. Each day I have the opportunity to work with our youth and initiate my platform. For the past two years I have been educating our youth on the concept of mathematics at Magnolia Elementary school. I recently graduated from the University of North Carolina at Pembroke with a bachelor’s of science in Middle Grades Education with a concentration in Math and Science.
Words cannot express the amazing moments that I have experienced already throughout my reign. I have an amazing court, and I look forward to the remainder of the excitement to come.
