Queen of the Month: Miss California USA 2013

miss-california-usa-2013-2Miss California USA 2013 Mabelynn Capeluj is Diary of a Pageant Girl’s Queen of the Month for March! In the interview below, Mabelynn shares how she got into pageantry, her pageant platform, her favorite pageant category (and least favorite), and so much more!

Mabelynn was crowned Miss California USA 2013 this past January, and she will compete for the Miss USA title this summer.


…the Miss USA and Miss Universe organization helps empower women. Miss USA is a role model who is involved in her community and donates a lot of her time to charity work. A lot of people don’t realize that a pageant isn’t a one night event, a pageant is a lifestyle. The girl who wins dedicates a whole year of her life to this organization; and not many people can get on a stage, strut down a runway, and speak in front of a large audience, so I believe that right there says a lot about women who compete in pageants. - Miss California USA 2013, Mabelynn Capeluj
