Nov. 15, 2012 - University of Houston Law Center student Zoe Cadore, 1L, has won the title of Miss Houston 2013. Cadore was also selected as Best Overall Interview. She will go on to compete in the Miss Texas Pageant in July 2013.
“I've always wanted to be Miss Houston,” Cadore said. “I love this city and the community. I'm so honored, blessed and excited to represent it this year. The win is still sinking in especially with school. I haven't had a lot of time to celebrate. I went straight from the pageant to the library to finish my memo that was due the next day.”
The Miss Houston/Miss Harris County Pageant, which took place on Nov. 11, is a preliminary pageant in the Miss America System. As the winner of the competition, Cadore was awarded sponsorships and cash scholarships. During her reign of service, she will make appearances across the state speaking and representing the city of Houston.
“Now that I am Miss Houston, I know I have a long road ahead of me,” Cadore said. “Miss Houston traditionally does very well at Miss Texas, and I definitely don't plan to break that tradition. I'm hoping I will bring back the crown and go on to compete for Miss America.”
A former intern for Congresswoman Sheila J. Lee, Cadore is a graduate of Spelman College. She is a member of Christian Legal Society, and she is the 1L Rep for Black Law Student Association. She is also a member of the Mock Trial Team.
