Being a contestant in the Miss Illinois USA pageant provides me an opportunity to access the highest level of myself by accomplishing goals I could never imagine. I embrace endeavors that motivate me to do more which is why I am committed to using this opportunity to amplify the voices of those who do not feel like they have one, while also using my voice to advocate and bring visibility to important matters that affect my community, women, girls, and younger generations. I am extremely thrilled and honored to be able to represent Kankakee in the upcoming pageant.
I competed in my first pageant in 2019, not realizing the impact a title could bring. In a matter of months, my life changed for the better. Pageantry has given me the platform to voice my beliefs and gain experiences that have shaped me into the person I am today. My goal is to give a voice to those who do not have one, and inspire others that they can achieve anything they set their mind to, no matter who they are. If I can make a difference, so can you. I am so grateful for the opportunity to walk the Miss Illinois Teen USA stage this March, representing our beautiful states nickname, the “Prairie State.” Join me in supporting this journey to the Vanbros crown by becoming one of my official sponsors. Thank you for your consideration!
Chasing my dreams, is the action that has led me into competing for the title of Miss Illinois USA.
I am Aubre' Alexander and in my life I haven't been dealt the best hand of cards, but I do not let my fear of "losing" the game stop me. I have always dreamed of living, and pursuing my highest goals; being an entertainer, an entrepreneurial spirit, and my own boss, with that said, accomplishing these goals, require me to take fearless leaps of faith. In my mundane routine of life, I have going now, I play the role of happiness, joy, comfort, compassion, and understanding, to those forgotten by their loved ones, or disposed of at the convenience of their loved ones. I do the "gut wrenching" work that others describe to be unbearable; taking care of elders. I chose to compete in Miss Illinois USA, because I believe in myself and believe that I have so much light, and abundance for the world to see, and the Universe continues to share and encourage me to follow through, be inspired and take action! Not trusting in my guides and myself feels like self-sabotage. I am a conduit of realness, unconditional love, and life! I just genuinely want to manifest my biggest dreams, and abundances, live my utmost highest, and best lifestyle, and share the abundance and rewards from my hard work with my loved ones.
Being awarded the opportunity to compete as Miss Illinois USA has shown me that I can do anything I set my mind to, and with my intelligence, I am ready to represent my home state and showcase my ability to advocate for underrepresented individuals. Having representation as a way to know that they can succeed by seeing people who look like them is ideal for anyone. I enjoy challenges that help me to reach my goals. I understand that while obstacles are not enjoyable, they better prepare me for growing into my purpose as a human being.
