Miss Indy Juneteenth
Congratulations to Teresa Clay on becoming the 2022 Miss Indy Juneteenth.
This is going to be an exciting journey and an amazing experience.
"To be crowned Miss Indy Juneteenth 2022 is such an honor. As a teen I left home at 13 and entered foster care. To become a beacon of light after trauma was my dream, and it’s what Juneteenth signifies. I want people to know you can not only survive but you can thrive after trauma. As long as you are breathing, you can fight every day for a healthier, happier life" - Teresa Clay
