PRLog - Feb. 13, 2013 - Admired for her poise, faith in Christ and the positive example she lives out for other young women, Victoria J. Mangham represents everything the media does not portray. She's the "good girl" with a message: "It is possible to live for the Kingdom and still have fun…the SAVED way."
Victoria J. Mangham, 2012 Miss Michigan, National American Miss Pageants
Mangham is a fashion merchandising student and aspiring fashion designer, focusing on footwear. While waiting for the day she can launch her own shoe collection, Mangham lights up the pageant world modeling faith and fashion. She has won many pageant titles locally, statewide and nationally.
As a pageant princess holding titles for the 2012 Miss Michigan under the National American Miss pageant system and 2012 National Sparkle Success under the Sparkle Success pageant system, Mangham uses her platform to visit schools and speak on the issue of bullying.
"Well, believe it or not, I was bullied at a young age so I know for a fact how it feels to have someone constantly putting you down. I want to use my various testimonies to help, uplift and encourage others while they are in their storms," said Mangham. "You would be surprised how many young people are taking their own lives because it gets to be too much persecution against them."
Mangham uses her Twitter account, @MissTori_J, to minister to and encourage others. She also blogs about "The Power of Your Dreams" at thepowerofyourdreams.blogspot.com. People's dreams are "powerful and with the right amount of will power, belief in God, and a lot of faith, they can accomplish those dreams."
Someone as inspirational as Mangham must be inspired by another influential person. Without hesitation, Mangham acknowledges her mother inspires her. "Even as a small child, she always told me that I could be whatever I wanted; that with Christ, I am able. My mother is my motivation to be a better ME."
In our society, it's not ‘acceptable’
Said Littlejohn, "It just seemed right that Victoria would be the first young woman chosen to be cast in the 'Real Life Model Me Girl' spotlight."
