Southwest Louisiana Woman Wins Miss Louisiana Pageant
A Southwest Louisiana woman has taken home the honor of being crowned Miss Louisiana 2021.
Julia Claire Williams is a graduate of Kinder High School and University of Louisiana in Monroe. Williams is excited that her win puts the city of Kinder on the map for a reason other than sports.
Julia has been competing in pageants since she was a toddler and as a competitive dancer since the age of six. She attributes her early exposure to the lights of the stage and big time competition for training her for this day.
Williams not only earned the title of Miss Louisiana, but also won $12,500 in scholarships and the opportunity to represent Kinder and Louisiana in the Miss America pageant later this year.
She's currently an emergency room scribe at St. Francis Medical Center in Monroe, but plans to use her scholarship to attend medical school to become a pediatric doctor.
