Since her mother is a retired pageant competitor, it helped her a lot to come into the pageant field. She adores her parents for being supportive, especially her mother, who taught her to be an advocate, to be strong, brave, and present herself uniquely with grace.
With her mother’s support, Camille began her pageantry career when she was 14-years old.
Additionally, she was an athletic kid, and her love for science began when she was in eighth grade. All these characters led her to succeed in her career.
When Camille was 18, she left to participate in competitions since she didn’t like giving too much emphasis on outward appearance. But when the swimsuit competition and criteria for physical appearance were removed, she came again in the career.
As of her education, she has graduated Cum Laude from Virginia Tech with dual degrees in Biochemistry and Systems Biology and minored in Chemistry.
Currently, Camille is studying Doctor of Pharmacy at Virginia Commonwealth University.
