Washington is a second-year doctor of public health student at FAMU. The Miss Black U.S. Ambassador and Miss Black Teen U.S. Ambassador Scholarship Pageant LLC in partnership with the GE Institute Foundation Inc. exists to give a once in a lifetime opportunity for young African American women to serve as an ambassador of change and to encourage, empower and enlighten, communities, states, and nations. These young women are a rising voice in the community that seek to make a difference, by providing educational forums and events that focus on health disparities, poverty, violence and major issues plaguing the African American community.
Utilizing the platform “Representation Matters.” Washington will work to ensure that marginalized communities always have a seat at the table and voices are heard when decisions are made. This three part campaign will be achieved through raising awareness of health inequities, leadership development seminars, and the promotion of leadership opportunities on the local, state, and national level.
Washington earned a bachelor’s degree in health science and a master’s degree in public health from FAMU and currently serves as the Surgeon General for the Student Government Association of the University. Her community engagement includes service as a Young People 4 Fellow, America Walks Fellow, and an Education Ambassador for Bright Pink. This year, her expertise and dedication to her community resulted in being named one of the Tallahassee Democrat’s “25 Women You Need to Know” and a spot in class 4 of the Tallahassee Chapter of the New Leaders Council.
She is currently seeking sponsorships for the National Pageant that will take place July 16-24, 2017 in Orlando. Anyone interested in providing sponsorships or scheduling guest appearances are asked to please contact her directly at email@example.com.
