Urbana has a chance to support Titianna (Tati) Ammons who has entered the Mrs. USA Petite Pageant.
Tati has been an active member of the community, committing a countless number of volunteer hours. She is currently the precinct committee woman in Cunningham 6 of Urbana. She is the candidate for Champaign County Board District 11 which spans the north-central portions of both Champaign and Urbana. She is also a Team Captain of local Multiple Sclerosis walk team, just to name a few of the many ways she is involved in the community. Tati mentioned that she decided to compete after making a personal commitment to really start living after being diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis. “Every day is an opportunity to try something new or old, that you have always put off.” The pageant will be held September 30th-October 3rd, 2020 in Chicago, Il. The USA Petite pageant is the official preliminary to the Universal Petite pageant, where petite women from all over the world compete for the Universal title. Pagents are expensive this is why many black girls don't get a chance to compete. This pageant is a chance for her to not only shine a positive light on Urbana, IL, but a chance to shine her beauty and brains to the world.
