Miss La Mesa & Miss Santee Testimonials

“Participating as a Jr. Miss Santee at 12 years old, I never would have dreamt it would lead to my participation in the Miss California Teen USA pageant. Through this experience I have gained poise, self-confidence and interview skills. It has also afforded me numerous opportunities to meet & network with people from all walks of life. Thanks to Sierra Billock and 4 Points Events for coaching and mentoring me every step of the way. I could not have done it without you.” – Brianna Stafford, Jr. Miss Santee 2013, Miss Teen Santee 2014 & Miss San Diego Cities Teen USA 2016

“Becoming part of the 4 Points Event sisterhood has been an unforgettable, life-changing experience. I work with some of the best directors in the field. Sierra, Robin, Maria and Erynne are all strong, caring women who provide contestants and titleholders with the tools to believe in themselves and work towards being the best they can be. Competing in pageants has been a time of self-discovery which has turned me into a more confident, outgoing person. Being a titleholder has allowed me to develop poise in social situations, think on my feet, network, develop leadership skills, and work with many incredible people and organizations.  I would encourage you to compete in a 4 Points pageant.  You will learn more about yourself, garner essential life skills and gain life-long friends.” – Susanna Wiggins, Miss Teen San Diego Cities 2013, Miss La Mesa 2016

“”3rd time’s the charm” I was told as I was leaving to compete for Miss Teen Santee for the 3rd year in a row. It may have taken 3 years but that was when I won and ever since then, I know that hard work really does pay off. Being a part of the 4 points events sisterhood is the experience of a lifetime. I learned something new every year I competed, not just the year I won… But when I was crowned Miss Teen Santee, it was not the crown that I was so ecstatic about, but the amazing opportunities I was about to be given. I have enjoyed my year thus far and can not wait to compete at Miss San Diego Cities USA in April. I want to thank Sierra and Maria for supporting me since the first year I ever competed all the way until now. I can’t wait to continue pursuing my dreams and pageant career through the 4 Points Events program.” – Kaylyn Rambo, Miss Teen Santee 2016

“Throughout my years of competing for the Miss Santee title I have learned many things, from speaking and interviewing skills to poise and confidence. This year as Miss Santee 2015 I was given the chance to network with members of my community, including city council and chamber members. I competed in the Miss Santee pageant 7 times before winning and I truly believe that it was because of 4 Points Events and the opportunities that the title gives to you. Everything I have learned through my reign as Miss Santee has shaped me into the strong confident women that I am today.” – Rebecca Hudson, Miss Santee 2015

“At first I was on the fence about competing for the title of Miss Teen Santee, but competing has changed my life drastically. I’ve learned so much about myself that I never knew before, like the fact that I can walk in heels or speaking to complete strangers in my community. I got the amazing opportunity to meet city council and chamber members, and every single one of them were so sweet! My reign has been the best year of my life, I gained 3 new sisters and spent it with the best directors ever. 4 Points Events, thank you so much for everything that you’ve done for me and creating the opportunity for young women to make a difference in their community.” – Heather Cantin, Miss Teen Santee 2015

“As a native to the city of La Mesa becoming Miss La Mesa was a huge honor. It gave me the opportunity to connect with members of my community, raise thousands of dollars for numerous charities and meet wonderful women who want to make a difference. This entire experience only makes me wish I had joined the pageant community sooner. Thank you 4 Points Events for making a permanent positive difference in my life! You are a irreplaceable member to the Cities of La Mesa and Santee.” – Tiffany Hoffman, Miss La Mesa 2015

“Being Miss La Mesa 2014 was one of the best experiences of my life! My favorite part of my year was being able to bond with my Teen, Kelli. I do not have any siblings of my own, so it was fun for me to be able to be a mentor to Kelli, as well as many other girls in the city of La Mesa. Because I did not grow up in La Mesa, I had a wonderful time during my year learning about my new town and its history. Also during my reign, I was able to work closely with my  Director, Sierra, who helped me prepare for the 2014 Miss Greater San Diego USA pageant, where I placed 2nd Runner Up, and she is currently helping me prepare for Miss California USA! I will always look back on my year as Miss La Mesa with a smile on my face and joy in my heart! Everything I gained from that year has helped shape me into the strong and confident woman I am today.” – Mandy Bakker, Miss La Mesa 2014

“Throughout my years of doing pageants, I have grown immensely. I have been able to give back to my community, learn to speak in public, and grow as an individual during my interviews. My year as Miss Teen La Mesa 2014 helped me to grow in these areas even more. With the support of the community and the pageant directors, I grew into a young lady and obtained valuable life skills. I am able to comfortably stand in front of a crowd of people and give a speech, calmly walk into a job interview, and do my hair and makeup. I have so much to thank this pageant and the directors for and I cannot wait to come back and compete for Miss La Mesa!” – Kelli Loper, Miss Teen La Mesa 2014 & Miss La Mesa 2018

“I greatly enjoyed working with Sierra as my pageant director; she never hesitated in giving advice or helping me with anything. From picking out dresses to just talking she was always there for me and the other titleholders. Becoming Miss Santee was very beneficial to helping me grow as a person. I bettered my people skills, speaking abilities and outlook on the world. I gained a deeper love for my city and the individuals who are a part of my community. On top of that, I met amazing women who inspire me to strive for greatness. My time as Miss Santee helped me making connections and led to me getting an internship which has turned into a full-time position. I couldn’t put my experience into a box, but if I did, I would call that box “once in a lifetime”. – Elizabeth Shank, Miss Santee 2014
