USA National Miss Virginia Junior Teen, Addison Williams, is 13 years old and in the 8th grade and a straight “A” honor student. She plays volleyball for both her middle school and travel team Apple Valley. Addison enjoys interior design and she has had the opportunity to actually design homes in her marketing class. When she isn’t playing volleyball she is volunteering with the American Cancer Society. A charity near and dear to her heart. She also is traveling all over the Commonwealth speaking about Crown C.A.R.E.S along with her two projects for elementary & middle schools.
A little fun fact is that Addison traveled to Jamaica with her family to help with her brother's Eagle Scout project by delivering 2,500 school supplies to the kids in need. She loves the color purple and her mom’s chicken enchiladas.
