Local teen Erica Danielle Freeman will be representing Noblesville in the upcoming National American Miss competition on July 6 and 7.
Freeman was nominated for participation by one of her previous teachers. She participated in the May initial pageant weekend where finalists were selected and is now looking forward to the upcoming state competition.
North American Miss is a program like no other. It is designed to help girls develop an empowering poise, self-confidence and commitment to community service. Freeman said it emphasizes academic excellence, rewards talents and focuses on teaching each contestant lifelong skills. Participants take part in a formal interview, talent contest, formalwear competition and a community involvement project. If she wins, she will receive a scholarship and represent the State of Indiana at the November National America Miss Pageant in Los Angeles.
Freeman is actively involved in Noblesville High School volleyball, show choir, orchestra and White River Christian Church. Her passion is horseback riding and she is an active member of the J&J Equestrian Team, 4-H and Hamilton County Horseman Club. She enjoys playing piano and violin and has two pets.
