Jada is no stranger to pageantry. At the age of 14, she entered her very first pageant, Miss Teenage California 2012, and was named 1st runner up. From there she continued to place over the next two years at MTCA. Eventually, she won the title of Miss North County Coastal Teen USA, in which she placed Top 20 at Miss California Teen USA. In 2015, she placed 3rd runner up and in 2016 1st Runner at Miss Nevada Teen USA! During Jada’s pageant career she maintained a 4.2 GPA so she decided to take an early placement that resulted in her graduating high school at the age of 15. She went on to graduate from USC in 2019 with her Bachelor's in Health and Human Sciences with a minor in Healthcare Studies (Pre-Med)
Together, Jada and K. Nicole have coached the former Miss Teenage California 2011, Bianca Vierra, who went on to win our title of Miss Brea Canyon Teen USA and a state title in the Miss USA system. In addition, training our former Miss Corona Regional Teen USA Melanie Mitchell who also won Miss California Teen USA 2015! We are so excited to meet all of the contestants vying for the title of Miss Teenage California!!
