20-year old Annabel Rivera is a 2010 graduate of Lufkin High School, who hasn't exactly been taking it easy after high school. She's been attending SFA and pursuing fame and fortune in beauty pageants. She'll compete along with 113 other Texas woman this weekend in the Miss Texas USA Pageant in Houston.
It hasn't been an easy road for Rivera, who became fascinated with pageants after watching them on TV. Once she went through the application process and became accepted, she still needed to raise the money for the registration fee and that wasn't easy.
