Since 1964, Miss Diamond Bar and her Court of Princesses have been committed to serve as ambassadors for the City of Diamond Bar and positive role models to the youth of our community for over 50 years. These young ladies all joggle full time school schedules and/or part/full time jobs, while maintaining their rigorous pageant schedule of over 50 appearances a year. The Miss Diamond Bar Scholarship Pageant, Inc. is a non-profit organization that depends on the support of the volunteers, local businesses and city leaders to continue this important community tradition.
Bella is a 16 year old junior at Diamond Bar High School. She is an officer for the American Red Cross Club at her school where she helps plan blood drives, recruit donors and fulfill veterans wish lists. Recently, Bella won the "Leading to Make a Difference" High School Oratory contest in the Walnut Valley School District and represented her district at the regional level. She plays the piano and plays the bass in her school's orchestra. Bella gives back to her community by volunteering at St. Jude Medical Center where she has worked in the Neonatal Intensive Care unit, Labor and Delivery, and Mother and Baby unit. She is a competitive fencer and is a proud member of the All Academic Fencing Team and All American Fencing Team. In February 2019, she competed in the Fencing Junior Olympics National Championships.
Bella aspires to become a doctor of psychology to help young adolescent girls conquer mental illness. With charitable intent, she plans to open a nonprofit organization to help young girls gain confidence and self esteem. Bella would like to thank her family, friends and sponsor for their love and support.
