Texas Teen is First Black Woman to be Crowned Miss Texas Teen USA

After it’s first pageant in 1983, the Miss Texas Teen USA crown will be worn by the first black woman. Kennedy Edwards, a freshman at Howard University, won the title after she first entered the 2018 Miss Houston USA.

Edwards made the announcement on her Twitter account.

She admitted she’d only competed in two pageants in her whole life, she told CW39.

When asked about what advice she’d give to other girls, she said, “I’d advise you to just go for it, Texas [Teen] was my second pageant to ever compete in, Houston being my first and they were both just thing I went for and was confident in.”

She also noted how excited she was to represent her hometown of Houston.
