Miss Georgia is a title Leah Massee has spent years working for.
"She has competed in a few pageants. This has always been a dream," said sister, Laura Massee.
"I have honestly been working on this my whole entire life. This was a dream of mine since the fourth grade," said Miss Georgia, Leah Massee.
Though Leah has worked hard to make this dream come true. The real preparations came from the streets of her hometown Fitzgerald, Georgia
"I am just so thankful for all because honestly I would not be here without the support of this community, my parents, and my friends across Georgia," said Leah Massee.
Leah now makes the second Miss Georgia to come out of Fitzgerald.
"We were hoping this would happen again, and we are glad that it was Leah. I think that she deserves it," said neighbor, Sandy Cowan.
"I am just glad that we got her, and I will be real surprised if she doesn't bring home a bigger crown. I'll really, really would be surprised," said former Miss Georgia, Louise Guardia.
"I can't control what the judges are looking for, and I just hope that they are ready for a small town Georgia girl to be Miss America because I know I am ready," said Leah Massee.
Now one of Fitzgerald's brightest will head to the city of lights to compete and bring home the Miss America title.
