Isabella Mosqueda, the 2019 Red Flannel Queen and a 2021 graduate of Cedar Springs High school, won the Miss Michigan Teen USA title last Saturday, May 28.
Isabella, who is the daughter of Catreal and Patrick Walters of Cedar Springs, competed against 39 girls for the coveted title. On Friday, she competed in an interview, and then later competed in the prelims, where she wore a fitness outfit, and then a beauty gown. On Saturday, she made the cut from 39 to 15 girls and then the cut from 15 to 6. Isabella was ecstatic when they announced her as the winner.
“Winning this title is so important to me because I know that I can meet so many people and make an impact on them,” she said.
Isabella will go on to compete at the national pageant in September. This next year she will be busy preparing for Miss Teen USA, doing events locally and across the state. “If I were to win Miss Teen USA I would continue being an advocate for people with invisible disabilities and use my following to bring to light other important issues,” Isabella told the Post.
