Megan Gordon was declared as the winner of Miss South Carolina USA 2017 last week. This wasn’t the first time Megan was competing at this pageant. She competed last year as well where she was declared as the first runner-up to her good friend Lead Lawson. She didn’t give up and competed once again this year and got crowned by her friend, the winner of 2016. She was very much excited about this fact. This is what she posted on the official facebook page of Miss South Carolina 201.
“God’s timing > My timing.
Both of these photos are extremely special to me and I’ve realized over this past year the importance of not giving up on myself or my dreams! I was honored to be named first runner-up last year to Leah Lawson and I’m even more excited that she crowned me this year! The blessing was delayed but not denied!!!
As we approach this new week, I challenge everyone (myself included) to set goals, work hard, have faith and achieve them! Let nothing stop you. God will see you through, I’m a witness!
I hope everyone enjoys these last few days of November and sets some awesome goals for December!
& thank you, Sage Media Group for capturing my reaction! I was literally stunned/excited/incredibly grateful all wrapped into one 😂“
