She is the daughter of Otrude Moyo and Roland Hawkes. She graduated this month from Catherine McAuley High School in Portland.

Following her selection as the Distinguished Young Woman of Maine, Hawkes began preparations for the National Finals competition, which will include five categories of evaluation – scholastics (20 percent), interview (25 percent), fitness (15 percent), talent (25 percent) and self-expression (15 percent). During her two weeks in Mobile, she will complete community service projects, interact with the Gulf Coast community through various events and engage in many hours of rehearsal in preparation for the three-night scholarship competition.

If selected as the program’s overall winner, Hawkes will spend the next year representing Distinguished Young Women across the country through various appearances and promoting the program’s national outreach initiative of “Be Your Best Self.”
