These women want to change the world, and this is their opportunity.

About Rachael Lynée Burns:

Rachael Lynée is a 26-year-old Texas native who believes this pageant actually found her. She said she was “so surprised to get an email from Mrs. Koether one day asking (her) to apply to be part of the pageant as Miss Fort Worth.” She was thrilled, because it would possibly allow her to spread the word about her favorite charity, National Children's Alliance. Rachael is a professional dancer, model, and actress, has a dance degree from the University of North Texas.

Rachael's love for serving others, along with her childhood experiences, gave Rachael her platform idea, which is “childhood abuse prevention and recovery.” She has always been involved with helping others around her and wants to encourage others to do the same in their own lives. The charity Rachael has chosen to promote the National Children's Alliance which is an organization dedicated to confronting child abuse and pointing victims to advocacy centers for recovery. They work closely with the Children's Advocacy Centers of Texas. Abuse victims hold a special place in Rachael's heart, and her goals with this platform are to be a resource for those who are recovering and to help prevent children from being abused. She speaks publicly about her experiences and how others can recognize and prevent child abuse.
