    A new Miss South Carolina Teen will be crowned on June 25 in Columbia and Miss Florence Teen Alycesaundra Lyerly is hopeful that she’ll bring the crown back to the Pee Dee region of South Carolina.

   In preparing for the competition, Lylery said that in the last year she has grown in so many ways.

    “I have learned to step outside of my shell,” Lylery said. “I can’t let things deter me.”

      Lylery, who is the CEO of her own clothing line AlycesaundraL, said representing Florence has been rewarding to her.

   “ I would like my community to know that I am working hard to represent them and that they have shaped me into the person that I am today,” Lylery said. “I want to show them that they have chosen a great person, and I want to make them proud.”

     Lylery not only hopes to win the crown but also wants to make new friends while at the pageant.

    “The thing I am looking forward to the most is meeting new people,” Lylery said. “I also want to learn more about this amazing pageant system.”

      The Miss South Carolina Teen pageant runs in conjunction with the Miss South Carolina pageant and will send the state winner to the Miss Teen America Pageant to Dallas, Texas.

      Lylery said the competition

she looks most forward to is interview and talent.

“I love interview because it allows me to show the judges who I really am, they get to see and know the real me,” Lylery said. “     Talent allows me to show everyone what I can do with my voice, as well as let me share my voice with the world.”

     Lylery said she wants the judges to know that she lives on a huge farm and that she’s been featured in several magazines. She also has a twin sister, Givanna. Several of her clothing items have been shown at New York Fashion week.

     Miss Florence Teen Pageant Local Executive Director Alicia Gibson-Robinson said that working with Lylery has been a delight.

         “It’s been great getting to know Alycesaundra this past year and sending her to the Miss South Carolina Teen pageant,” Gibson-Robinson said. “I want to encourage all teens to take advantage of this opportunity in the upcoming year and come and compete and have the chance to win college scholarships.”

   The Miss Florence Teen pageant will be held later this year in Florence.
