WEST COLUMBIA, SC -- Megan Darazs has added a new title to her name -- Miss Capital City Teen.
Darazs, a Brookland-Cayce High School junior, won the title during an event presented by Miss Columbia & Miss Capital City Organization, affiliated with the Miss America organization.
Darazs said this was the first time she participated in a pageant.
“I didn’t realize just how serious this organization is about empowering young women and giving them a platform to change the world around them with their incredible ideas and passions,” she said. “It’s so motivating to see all these young women working so hard to make an impact and be such an asset to the community.”
Darazs, who is interested in a career as a sociocultural anthropologist to learn more about groups of people and their cultural legacies, said she is looking forward to her year of service as Miss Capital City Teen.
“Winning the title of Miss Capital City Teen has been so empowering as a young woman and has given me a wonderful way to publicize my platform, Creative Connectivity,” Darazs said. “I want my year of service as Miss Capital City Teen to reflect the impact that the creative arts has on our academic community when encouraged and aided.”
Next up for Darazs is the Miss South Carolina Outstanding Teen competition.
