Miss Teen Louisiana USA – Averi
Averi Blyss Crawford is 17 years old and a senior at The Dunham School in Baton Rouge. She is Senior Class Secretary, a member of the varsity cheerleading squad, and in the Art Club, Beta Club, Cultural Correspondence Club, and National Honors Society. Her talents and hobbies include knitting, fishing, Pilates, traveling, shopping, and upcycling fashion. She plans to attend LSU majoring in construction management before going to law school.
Averi founded her own non-profit organization called Hair Care for Hope which collects hair supplies and tools to donate to domestic violence clinics and shelters around Louisiana. By providing these items, Hair Care for Hope provides overlooked items they cannot always afford to replace while also aiding in regaining their confidence.
Averi hopes to expand her non-profit work and advocate for other causes that matter to her, especially instilling confidence in pre-teen and young girls through social media and community projects.
