TELL CITY – Lucy “Lulu” Kathryn Harumal, the 3-year-old daughter of Kurt and Carrie Harumal of rural Tell City, competed in the Indiana State Dream Girls USA pageant in February in Columbus. She was chosen to represent the Hoosier State by competing in a national pageant in July in St. Louis, Mo.
Harumal also holds the title of Tiny Miss Tell City Hometown Queen and Tiny Miss Indiana High-Point Champion Supreme, which means Harumal had the overall highest score of all the girls under 4 years old competing in the state pageant. She also won prettiest hair, photogenic supreme and best casual wear runway model awards at the state level.
Dream Girls USA is a natural pageant, which means no fake hair, tans, eyelashes or nails are allowed in the competition. Makeup is also not allowed for girls competing under the age of 12. The pageants focus on community, charity and self-confidence.
Harumal competes in several natural pageant systems locally, but the Dream Girls USA title is the biggest she has won to date. Her favorite community service project is to donate items to the local animal shelters. She loves to play with her brothers, Trent, Gabe, Auburn and Kai Benjamin, and to help her parents bake and cook.
Harumal is a member of the Fusion Cheer Pride Minis, a competition cheer team, and enjoys gymnastics and dance class. When she grows up, she would like to be a cheer and gymnastics coach.
She needs sponsors and support for her July pageant. Donations may be sent in her name to 11780 Deer Creek Road, Tell City, IN 47586.
Harumal is the granddaughter of Mr. and Mrs. Gary Taylor of rural Tell City and Vivien Pereira of Singapore.
