Miss Delaware 2017 Chelsea Bruce | Headshot Photography


I had a great time shooting Miss Delaware 2017 Chelsea Bruce.  She is so smart and kind.  The reason I sponsor this pageant is the awareness it brings to important platforms.  I have a particular connection to Chelsea’s platform, “Destigmatizing Mental Illness”.  Here is more about Chile’s platform in her own words.

” Around the time that I was choosing a platform, one of my childhood friends died by suicide and a few days later there was a suicide on my campus. I felt like that was a sign that more needs to be done to destigmatize mental illness so more people will seek help instead of quietly suffering in shame. Shortly afterwards I joined the University of Delaware’s chapter of Active Minds which works toward having open and healthy dialogue regarding mental health and illness in an effort to destigmatize mental illness. In addition to this, the club offers a safe space for people to speak about their afflictions and gives others the opportunity to learn how to act in specific situations. The Active Minds website is activeminds.org
