FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Bethesda, MD – November 6, 2016 – University of Maryland student, Adrianna David was crowned MISS MARYLAND USA® 2017 at the Bethesda North Marriott Hotel & Conference Center.
Adrianna is 22 years old and was born and raised in the Olney/Rockville, Maryland area. While attending the Academy of the Holy Cross in Kensington, Adrianna was involved in campus ministry, the arts: dance, theatre, and was also a member of the dive team. She was also a competitive cheerleader for 13+ years. After winning the gold medal with her team, Maryland Twisters F5, at The USASF/IASF Cheerleading World Championship in 2011, Adrianna was voted American Cheerleader Magazine's 2011 Cheerleader of the Year.
Adrianna is currently enrolled at the University of Maryland as a double-degree in Theatre and Communications. She transferred to the University of Maryland from the University of Alabama after two years. After spending some time in Los Angeles, Adrianna now commutes to and from New York City along with other major cities on the east coast building her talent resume and expanding her craft. Adrianna is an alumna of the Alpha Upsilon chapter of Alpha Chi Omega sorority. She loves to spend quality time with her family; parents Christian and Roxanne, and younger, twin sisters Julianna and Tatianna, and brother Christian II.
Further, Adrianna is Co-Founder of Charities Angels (www.charitiesangels.org), a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization; a group of women committed to giving from the heart to those in need through fund raising efforts. This is Adrianna’s passion and she plans to continue to support charitable causes as MISS MARYLAND USA® in the hopes that this platform will bring more awareness to many worthwhile charities both in Maryland and worldwide.
“In the last couple of years, Adrianna has been part of grass roots campaign, “Juliana’s Hope”, to help raise funds for The Kidney Project’s work to create a bio-artificial kidney which could help thousands suffering from ESRD. The catalyst for this is Adrianna’s 25-year old cousin, Juliana Casey, who has suffered from kidney disease since she was a child” stated Dr. Shuvo Roy, at UCSF. “Through this campaign and a couple of other Charities Angels events, Adrianna helped raise over $100,000. We believe Adrianna is a excellent choice for MISS MARYLAND USA® and we look forward to her making a positive difference!”
