Congratulations to Brenna Weick, 22, of Mantua, who was crowned Miss New Jersey on Saturday night in Ocean City! After being a finalist in three previous years, Brenna, Miss Seashore Line 2016, won the title and was bestowed her crown by outgoing Miss New Jersey 2015 Lindsey Giannini. Brenna will compete in the Miss America Pageant in Atlantic City in September. For talent, she sang “Someone like you” from the musical Jekyll & Hyde.
Brenna will use her platform, A World of Difference-Navigating the Cyber Sphere, to work on the issue of cyber-bullying. She told NJ.com, “My main goals are to encourage people of all generations to use the internet safely and with integrity. Not only do I want people to be safe while using social media and the internet, but I want them to hold themselves up to a higher standard and to respect themselves.”
Brenna has been speaking out about the issue at local events.
Just a few of the many sweet cards I received from Miss Darpino's fifth grade class! I loved speaking with them about how to navigate the Internet and playing cyber safe bingo with them! Thanks for having me and for all of the awesome illustrations wishing me luck this week!! #SpreadTheCyberLove #AWorldOfDifference #CyberSafe #MissNJGivingBack
