I am Kalyx Aikin,

Miss East Texas' Teen.

I earned the title of Miss East Texas' Teen on January 21, 2023. I am so excited to represent the East Texas area and the Miss Mount Pleasant Scholarship Organization over the next year as I give back to my community with every opportunity that arises and as I compete for the title of Miss Texas' Teen in Richardson in June-July of 2023! Join me on my journey!

Are you thinking about becoming a sponsor?

Here's why you should.

Sponsors just like you ensure that I am able to continue my work - continue sharing my story, educating others, and encouraging others to: 

  • Ask themselves "What If?"

  • Learn about sexual assault and how they can protect their own children and loved ones.

  • Get involved.

  • Speak up!

Within the East Texas area, I spread my time across many different causes to set an example of all the areas in which someone might focus their attention when The What If Project curriculum is put to use. The possibilities are endless.

 

I have volunteered with veterans, boy scouts, those with special needs, community events such as National Night Out, my local Volunteer Fire Department, our local mission/soup kitchen, and many other organizations within my community. I try to give back whenever and wherever there is a need.

Competing within the Miss Texas Organization has expanded the reach of Stronger Than the Silence and continues to do so daily. Some may see this as a luxury, but I began competing so that I could share my story - because I have a voice that needs to be heard.

My personal sponsors may elect how they'd like their contributions to be used. Some choose to specify the use of their contributions for my Miss Texas' Teen expenses, for use by The What If Project, for use by Stronger Than the Silence, to split it between those, or to allow me to use the contribution where it is most needed at the time. In-kind sponsorships are also welcome and appreciated!

Email aikin.trista.mom@gmail.com or call Trista Aikin at 903-336-7644 to become a sponsor and support my work today. When you invest in me and my work, you are investing in your community - in the youth that will one day lead it. I guarantee that you won't regret doing so.

My Sponsors

A big THANK YOU to 

Scott Johnson isn't a sponsor, per se, but he's always catching amazing shots of me at various events when he's out photographing happenings around town (and graciously allows me to use them as needed). I love working with Scott, and the use of color in his photos is second to none!

Will you be my

Princess?

“Whatever comes," she said, "cannot alter one thing. If I am a princess in rags and tatters, I can be a princess inside. It would be easy to be a princess if I were dressed in cloth of gold, but it is a great deal more of a triumph to be one all the time when no one knows it.”


― Frances Hodgson Burnett, A Little Princess

 Contact Trista Aikin to register as my princess today at 903-336-7644!
I can't wait to see you!
