She Unveils: From a Painful Past to a Promised Future!
Wednesday, July 6, 2016 – Houston, Texas – Lereca Monik of Houston, TX, has recently been awarded the title of Ms. Texas America 2016.
This title will allow Lereca to connect with the community, and use her “Crown for a Purpose” to make a difference in the lives of women and children. She intends to encourage them to embrace their uniqueness, and maintain a positive self-image, despite life’s transitions.
Lereca’s upbringing was not a life of glitz and glam. By the age of ten, Lereca had already experienced physical abuse, foster care, molestation, and a suicide attempt. By the age of twenty, she had experienced homelessness, rape, verbal abuse and addictions. She learned at an early age the power of grit and hard work, and was determined not to allow the history of her destructive past rule her future.
Lereca successfully graduated with both a Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees, and is considered a local emerging leader. She is actively involved in many community initiatives, and has received many accolades because of it. One of her most notable achievements to date includes being crowned as Ms. Texas America 2016.
“I feel honored and blessed that I have been given the opportunity to represent the State of Texas as Ms. Texas 2016 in the Ms. America 2017 pageant. My mission is to help others realize their potential. I want you to know that you were born for greatness, share you story and then go be great! So far, this journey has been amazing and I am forever appreciative for the connections, opportunities, and relationships that this experience will bring. Thank you for entrusting me, and thank you in advance for your support and generosity!” says Lereca Monik.
Lereca will be sharing her message at her private fundraising reception entitled, “SHE REIGNS: The Unveil”, scheduled for August 11, 2016 from 7pm – 9pm, in the Aventine Ballroom at Hotel ICON, located at 220 Main St, Houston, TX 77002. At the event, she will unveil her path to the crown, reveal her platform, and help raise the funds so that she may continue to help those embrace who they are, despite their adversities. Help her use her crown for a purpose!
