TULSA, Okla. — A Tulsa teenager is working to empower women in the community who are experiencing homelessness.
Tulsa pageant teen Alexis Walker says after feeling down about herself due to personal financial struggle and inability to buy fancy beauty products, she started thinking about women experiencing homelessness in our community and how many of them have much more dire needs than she, like for soap and feminine hygiene products.
Walker says she recently won the title USA National Miss Cimarron Country last month and afterward decided to revamp her platform to one called “Wear a Crown, Share a Crown.”
She says she used some of her own money as well as monetary and product donations to compile hundreds of hygiene and spa products.
Walker says she plans to host the first of what she’s calling “Ladies Days” in April — basically, a spa day provided for free to women experiencing homelessness.
She says it’s not about just making them look good, but most importantly feel good about themselves.
The teen says she plans to compete this summer for a national title, and continue her work for individuals in need beyond her pageant years.
