About MISS ORANGE COUNTY




ABOUT THE MISS ORANGE COUNTY  REGIONAL ORGANIZATION

We are the founder of the nationally recognized KINDNESS BEGINS WITH ME ANTI-BULLYING CAMPAIGN as well as the non-profit Coco's Corner. Our goal is 
to help develop our young women's life-skills, have a better understanding of one's sense of self, build confidence in any setting, self-awareness and to become involved in their surroundings. We are mentors and motivators. Our main focus is to create a sense of sisterhood with our girls and focus on developing a positive trait and provide an opportunity for our contestants to meet key people that will open doors, gain role models, meet industry experts and more. 
Our inspiration for creating this regional pageant stemmed from a close friend of ours who was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2011 in Huntington Beach California. We presented her a check towards her treatment which for us was the pivotal point of our pageant. Since then, we have been supporting Susan G. Komen and the American Cancer Society year after year.

Lynne Douglas Hoyt wrote an article about Giselle Boone.
"My first encounter with Miss Giselle Boone was at the Miss California USA® 2012 in Palm Springs, the same year that her Teen won the title Miss California Teen USA® 2012 on her first year as a Pageant Director.  Giselle Boone had expressed to me that she recognized Shelynne Hoyt's potential to win.  I was impressed with her honesty.  At that time, Shelynne Hoyt had another Pageant Director and my thought was she should do just fine. But she didn't.  Shelynne Hoyt did not even make the tope 20 in 2012 and experienced  great disappointment.  But through Giselle Boone's incredible gift, her love, persistence and dedication in training Shelynne Hoyt, she built a relationship with Shelynne, which encouraged her to try again. This time, Shelynne Hoyt experienced so much personal growth and pageant knowledge. Giselle Boone is well known in the USA Pageant System and the pageant itself all over the country.  This helped immensely and this time, Shelynne Hoyt succeeded and not only was a Top 20 pick at 2014 Miss California USA®, but proceeded forward to be in the Top 10 at the 2014 Miss California USA®. Thank you Giselle Boone for being the best pageant coach and pageant director."
