M​iss Black Ohio 


Mikayla A. Chess

I am an outgoing, charismatic, optimistic, strong, and independent and an intelligent black woman. I am involved in the community because I believe I can be the spark to change. 

I embrace self-love, confidence and success in everything that do. I am motivational, hardworking, dedicated, and compassionate.

My greatest strength is my ability to inspire, motivate and communicate with people of all ages and backgrounds.

I am talented or have skills in mediating conflicts, public speaking, leading others, time management, coaching, motivating and learning/critical thinking.

The hardest thing I have ever had to do was deal with the loss of my sister. I learned a lot about myself, my family and the grieving process. It still is one of the hardest things I have to deal with but I continue to provide support for my family and others who may have lost someone in their life.

I want to participate in the pageant because i have participated before and want to continue to support the system. The values of the pageant align with my own. I feel as though I can be a passionate, graceful, intelligent and poised contestant as well as a great role model for others. I loved my previous experiences I had in the pageant world and winning Miss Black Ohio Teen 2015 has taught me the knowledge, skills, and ability

to be a better contestant and/or title holder. My platform is to empower others to embrace self-love, confidence and success as well as be at the forefront of change for the current legal system.
