Club meeting, September 26, 2017 - Miss Philadelphia
Nia Andrews, Miss Philadelphia 1917, explained her project of “A fighting chance for every baby”. Her interest grew out of the struggles of the premature birth of her sister, born at 26 weeks, but who is now age 13. Nia also talked about some of the social action projects that she is interested in. She herself has experience at Children’s Hospital with individual families, and has attended other programs, such as the Red Cross ball. After her formal speech, Nia answered a number of questions about the competition for Miss Philadelphia, and summarized her approach to her activity by quoting Mahatma Gandhi: “The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others.” She will use the scholarship that she receives under this title to become a neonatal nurse practitioner.
