Miss Black RI 2012 Interview

Miss Black USA announces that Teiaki (tick-eye) Johnson has won the 2012 Miss Black Rhode Island crown. She now goes on to compete in the national Miss Black USA Pageant, set to be held in August.

Johnson is a retired U.S. Marine who has served in Iraq and Afghanistan. Currently she is a model and professional recording artist. She says although she loved serving her country overseas in the military, she is excited now about trading her helmet for a crown and her PT shorts and steel-toed combat boots for dresses and high heels. She also says that she will never forget her brothers and sisters in arms.

Miss Johnson joined ABC6 News as a guest during our 5:30pm news on Monday, February 6th.
