Newtown teen“Newtown’s Camille Schrier was chosen as the 2013 Miss USA Ambassador Teen at a national pageant earlier this month in Tampa.

Camille, 18, was scored in four categories: Judge’s interview, onstage chat, evening gown and fashion wear. In addition to the overall title, she won competitions in natural photogenic, glamour photogenic and runway modeling. She was named first runner up for community service.

Afflicted with a mild form of Ehlers Danlos Syndrome, Camille works to raise awareness of this genetic collagen disorder and promotes positive teen choices on her website …. and in her blog.

Camille is a June 2013 high honors graduate of The Hun School of Princeton where she earned the Robert Strianese Memorial Award. She was named to the 2013 Mid-Atlantic Prep All Academic Team for excellence in academics and received the President’s Award for Educational Excellence. She will attend the University of Michigan and study chemical engineering. At the Hun School, she was president of student government, president of the Young Alumni Association, captain of the track and field team and a member of the varsity field hockey and swimming teams. Outside of school, Camille volunteers for the Bucks County Emergency Homeless Shelter.”

“USA Ambassador is a charity-driven organization that promotes success through leadership, integrity, character and confidence,” she said., “Pageantry is a great opportunity to gain valuable experience in important life skills such as being interviewed and presenting yourself with poise and confidence in a business setting.”

Quite an accomplishment in spite of Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome.
