Alana Morgan is both beauty and brains. The 17-year-old senior at Beverly Hills High School (BHHS) was crowned Miss California Teen US on Aug. 9., and will go on to compete in the pageant’s national competition, Miss Teen United States, this October in Las Vegas. Morgan competed in her first pageant at age 12, in the Miss West Coast Pageant as a Junior Teen, placing the top five as a runner up. The high school senior wears her other titles proudly: actress, model, member of Distributive Education Clubs of America (DECA), entrepreneurship club, By Your Side club that helps students with special needs, varsity cheerleader, varsity track athlete, and head anchor on KBEV—the student run news station at BHHS.
For Morgan, pageantry is about more than glitz and glam. “This title actually gives me the ability to use my voice as a vehicle to push for change on different issues our society faces,” Morgan told the Courier. “I’m a role model for other young girls. and it’s important to uphold that responsibility and be the positive leader we need.”
