Jenelle’s walk down the runway began with a haircut chit-chat with Justin Rudd the director of the pageant at The Den Salon in downtown Long Beach, California where she works. Rudd was the one who suggested that she enter and tha her individuality would be embraced in the pageant world.
And with that Janelle decided that there was no reason not to enter the pagent and use it not only as as a platform to promote individual beauty but also to raise awareness of the surge in bullying directed at the LGBT community.
