This beautiful and confident young lady is Ana Cardenas, our new Miss American Pre-Teen. With a social calendar that rivals the most popular socialite, Ana keeps busy with a variety of activities, such as traveling, swimming, bike riding with her friends and family and giving back to her community. She has raised funds for St. Jude's Children's Hospital and a number of other charities; and is very hands on with volunteering with her sister queen's charity, Kindness Couture, which donates clothing to families in need. She also spends time with her older sister and brother writing greeting cards and letters of support to U.S. Veterans. One of Ana's favorite activities is modeling; she attended the Barbizon School in Florida and has already walked in Coastal Fashion Week and appeared in a magazine. During her reign, she wants to continue to broaden her experiences in both modeling and serving her community. She hopes to be a positive role model for her peers that you can do anything you set your mind to if you believe in yourself. We certainly agree!
