This week for #freeyourmindfriday, Lucabella LaEace, a mental health advocate and local titleholder in the Miss America Outstanding Teen Organization, took over our Instagram stories. Check out her bio below!
Lucabella LaEace is a 17-year old from Cincinnati, Ohio. She is a junior at Seton High School where she is involved in House Government, Student Ambassadors, and StrongHer board. As well, she is a member of the National Honor Society and Spanish National Honor Society. Lucabella lost her grandpa to suicide at age 10 and later learned the cause of his death when she was 13. This inspired her to become a mental health advocate and start her own movement – Hope & Healing. Lucabella is a local titleholder in the Miss America’s Outstanding Teen Organization and will be competing for Miss Ohio’s Outstanding Teen in June.
