I’m working towards becoming Miss America’s Outstanding Teen. You probably didn’t know that one of the exciting opportunities this organization offers is the chance to raise funds for local children’s hospitals through Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. The money I raise will help save children’s lives, and a portion will also go to support the MAOTeen Scholarship Fund. Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals makes sure that donated funds stay local, which means that your donation helps kids and families right here in our community.

I invite you to join me in touching the lives of sick and injured children today, by clicking the "Donate Now" button to make a secure donation.

Thank you so much for your support and for helping me make miracles happen! Please help me reach my goal!!

Elaina McCoulskey

Elaina is a military 'brat' that had more frequent flyer miles by the time she was four than most adults!  She has traveled the world with her family, gaining exposure to many different languages and cultures along the way.  She used her years of experience with new schools and the ever so prominent "new kid" status to better the lives of military kids everywhere.  Thus, Sacrifice2 "When One Serves, We All Serve" was born.  Sacrifice2, (sacrifice squared), is a peer to peer support group for military kids to come together and share their experiences with people who understand.  It started in her high school and is slowly but surely making its way through the rest of the district.

She is currently a Junior at Claudio Taylor “Lady Bird” Johnson High School and wishes to pursue a career in Forensic Investigations.  She has taken two years of French, four years of Spanish, and is currently learning both Latin and American Sign Language.  When she's not in class, she can be found in the theatre wing either painting a set or practicing stage makeup for upcoming shows.  She loves community service and hopes her reign will consist of helping the people of San Antonio and promoting her platform.
