For Lloya, beauty is more than a look or a statement. She views beauty as a tool for driving social change and creating community. “I want to make an impact by collaborating with people of all walks of life to crate jobs, build the black dollar and create a center for women to come together,” she says in her application video. Lloya views diversity as essential to beauty and also to one’s individuality and path to empowerment. Her commitment to hard work and achievement is reflected in her conviction, “I believe in myself and will always do things differently. I’m only limited to what I don’t imagine or put effort toward,” she says
