Courtney Turner, Miss Teen United States 2009, and I recently had a great discussion and interview that we will have on the show soon. Obviously, Courtney, as you can see here, is a beautiful young woman, but you want to know more…so here’s the biography:
Courtney Hope Turner is a Sophmore at the University of South Carolina majoring in Multimedia and Communications. With her degree she plans to work with organizations that help stop Human Trafficking. She has started her own organization called H.O.P.E., Helping Open People’s Eyes, which helps create awareness and raise funds for her cause. She is an athlete, as well as a dancer; competing in tennis, swimming, soccer, and ballroom dance. She loves spending time with her family of 8 going camping, hiking, and even skydiving. Courtney is passionate about making a difference wherever she goes and touching the lives of everyone she meets. Her favorite volunteer activities include: Queen for A Day, serving at the Salvation Army, visiting hospitals and elderly homes, Community work, and she has even been to Kenya, Africa for missions. She describes her reign this year to be full of surprises because the Lord is leading her and the crown to where He has destined. Her advice to others is to ‘never give up on any of your dreams, pursue them will all of your heart!’
Courtney was a great lady to get to know and I can’t wait to share our interview on the PageantCast soon. I also want to thank Mr. Harvey Bellamy for helping us get this interview all set up in the first place.
