Name: Cassondra Jones

Daily Reporter: Why did you get involved in contests?

Jones: The first contest I entered was my sophomore year of high school in 2016 – it was the Hancock County 4-H Fair Queens contest. I did it for fun and the learning experience, but learned that contests were about more than dressing up. So I fell in love with the experience of competing in contests and here we are.

DR: What do you hope to accomplish this year as Miss Indianapolis?

Jones: The Miss Indianapolis organization talks about “real women in the real world, making a real difference.” And I’m just one of eight defending champions who were crowned last weekend. We all hope to make an impact on our community and others, through volunteering, charity events, public appearances, and other community outreach opportunities.

I hope to work with children in the community through mentoring opportunities. To inspire growth, confidence and the desire for a better future.

DR: Do you think being Miss Indianapolis will help you achieve your personal, academic, or professional goals?

Jones: Competitions usually help me improve my interview skills, my public speaking skills, and my self-confidence. The Miss Indianapolis pageant alone has already been a great networking opportunity.

DR: Do you plan to continue participating in other contests? If so, what?

Jones: Yes, I will continue to do contests to meet new people, to work on my professional skills, but also to have this opportunity to make a difference in the community. I know I can make a difference without a competition, but it’s great to have an organization that supports me and my platform.
