The first-ever Miss Preteen Malibu — 12-year-old Rachel DeAngelis — is setting out to make a name for Malibu girls on a State level, with her upcoming showing in the Miss Preteen California Pageant May 22-24 in San Luis Obispo.
“I’ve always idolized the [Miss Teen] Malibu girls, but I never really thought about being in that circuit,” DeAngelis said. “It started because I got a casting call to be Junior Miss North Hollywood. When I was going through the auditioning process I was like, ‘Wait a second. Maybe I should do my own city.’”
