Kelsey Adam Is A Two Time Beauty Pageant Winner
Kelsey Adam is Miss Delaware Teen USA 2009 and Miss Delaware USA 2014.
Since winning the former title in the Bahamas, she received many opportunities. She was cast in Freddy Walker’s music video and we can also see her in the MV for "Echo" by Dave Patten.
Further, she modelled in the Carlisle Corvette Show and got the chance to do a Fashion Show for Tiger Lily, a local boutique store.
Being Miss Delaware helped Kelsey gain confidence in herself and start with great ethusiasm despite being new in this industry. She believes being herself was what got her the crown.
Kelsey had also ran for the title the previous year, when she listened to a lot of outside opinions about how to wear her hair, the "winning" hair color, and what-not. She didn't feel like herself and came in second.
In 2014, the then-22-year-old decided to try it her own way. That year, she did not have a pageant coach or a trainer and got her gown only the night before the pageant.
Kelsey then pretty much had her motto as "To thine own self be true." She wanted to inspire more young women to be whatever they want.
She also used her position to bring attention to Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy, which one of her friends suffered from. RSD, a lesser-known neurological disorder, causes chronic pain because of damage to the peripheral nervous system.
Besides, the Delaware native is also passionate about god and religion. She is a devout Christian, just like her beau Jason, and graduated from Kanakuk Institute in April 2018.
She has mentioned Proverbs 31:25 on her Twitter bio, "She is clothed with strength and dignity, and she laughs without fear of the future."
Further, Kelsey and her reporter friend, Morgan Mobley, write uplifting articles about faith on a blog called Girlfriends With Grace.
Kelsey Adams Became A Model By Accident
Kelsey Adams studied organizational community leadership at the University of Delaware. Kelsey aspired to travel the world and work in broadcasting someday.
She also intended to be a basketball star and play for UD, like her older sister and younger brother. However, she tore an ACL twice in school, putting an end to her hopes.
Then, a former Mrs. Delaware USA gave her a call, suggesting she try the pageant. Kelsey's mom, Karen, encouraged it and she ended up giving it her all.
Jeff, her dad, describes Kelsey as a hardworking individual who would get up at five every morning to work out before attending her college classes.
Likewise, Jason Adam, her then-boyfriend, said, "Her humility, genuine heart and the fact that she really cares about others is what separates her from other contestants."
The baseball star described Kelsey as a girl who could do it all - have a tough game of catch with him one day and glide elegantly in evening wear on stage the next.
The 31-year-old beauty stands 5' 10" tall and has green eyes and long, blonde hair. Her work genres include Acting, Editorial, Fashion, Fitness, Lifestyle, and Sports. Kelsey describes herself as an outgoing, social, and athletic girl who is open to new experiences.
