• I always love the Essence system. I feel like I have an added family. Candice Sample, Mrs. Virginia Essence 2013


• I have had the wonderful opportunity to compete in the Essence pageant system twice. The first year I competed was such a rewarding experience I chose to compete again this time with my youngest daughter. This was an opportunity for my daughter and I to grow and learn together as well as support each other . We were able to make appearances in our state as a mother-daughter team and reach a unique group of individuals while promoting a system we truly believe in. We have developed friendships that will continue to develop for years to come. Thank you Essence Pageants for opening the door to an everlasting memory.
