Welcome to the big leagues, Julia Rae.
A few years ago, Julia Rae Schlucter competed in the Miss America’s Outstanding Teen program is Miss Pennsylvania 2008. Being a titleholder was unlike anything she had ever experienced before, and she knew that she wanted to stay involved with the Miss America Organization. In fact, she’s confident that the experiences she gains from competing will help her further down the road in life, as she pursues “real life” dreams and careers. She gave the Miss Pennsylvania Organization a round or two before school brought her to the Big Apple. Here, she decided to promote her very personal platform and compete at the MAO Miss New York City pageant. Now, as Miss Metropolitan 2014, Julia Rae will be going to Miss New York for the first time this year!
