Lacey Sanchez is a winner through and through.
As a student-athlete and a dang-good pole vaulter (3rd ranked all-time at LSU), Lacey was NOT headed in the direction of “Miss America”. But Lacey’s mom was a pageant-girl, and when her mom was diagnosed with breast cancer, Lacey agreed to pursue her first local title as a way to do something with her mom that would keep their minds off of cancer and chemo.
Then she won her local. It’s a hilarious story – one you should hear for yourself on the Pageant Junkies Podcast at this link…
Over several years, Lacey kept competing and eventually achieved the title of Miss Louisiana 2014. Lacey has such a calm demeanor – at first glance, you might not think that she has a competitive side to her! But don’t be mistaken – Lacey likes to win. And even though she may not have won the title of Miss America, she certainly “won over” her judges – coming home with the non-finalist interview award! CONGRATS!
The best part of Lacey’s story is that she understands how pageantry plays out in the ‘big picture’ of life… She’s adamant that young women understand how “Pageants should be A DREAM, but not THE Dream…” There are many, many things Lacey plans to achieve in her life – and pageants have paved the way for even more incredible things to come in her life… That’s why Junkies wish her ALL THE BEST and look forward to those next steps that come her way 🙂
