Beauty Queen on a Budget

I recently traveled to Seattle, WA ( my hometown! ) to interview the current Miss WA USA , Tara Turnure. Tara has put her business marketing degree from NorthEastern to work in a very practical way. In these tough economic times, this beautiful young lady is being resourceful and savvy as she prepares for the MISS USA pageant.

She has found numerous local businesses to sponsor her and cut her costs significantly! From hair and make-up to personal training, tanning and clothes, she has covered it all. By persistently calling people and asking for their help, Tara is receiving incredible discounts and sponsorships. Its a great reminder to everyone that with a little creativity and determination, things can happen!

Most importantly, Tara has proved you don't need a lot of money to prepare for Miss USA. She shops at Forever 21 just like the rest of us. It was a pleasure to interview her and her Mom, Terry. I wish her the very best at Miss USA - April 19th in Las Vegas.
