Miss Hawaii 2009: From Volleyball to Pageantry Written by Lisa Kubota - [email protected] �� June 28, 2009 04:11 PM � This year's Miss Hawaii hasn't been involved in pageants her whole life.

In fact, she started less than three years ago.

But Raeceen Woolford's first love, set her up for the crown.

From the hardwood to the stage, not a typical transition in the glamorous world of pageants, but for the former University of Hawaii wahine volleyball player, it was just another challenge.

"I brought it to the attention of my teammates and they said 'girl you can do it, you should do it, you're miss aloha, you're miss hawaii,' and they encouraged me to run," Woolford said.

The 24-year-old says her time as a volleyball player has helped her step into the spotlight.

"The ability to handle pressure, roles of responsibility, being in front of a lot of people and being comfortable in my own skin," she said.

This `Iolani graduate plans to become a physician, and her love for kids may have sealed her victory when she was asked this final question.

Question: "Does 'Octomom' deserve a reality TV show?" "Children, especially in 'octomom's' case deserve a normal and fair development," she said.

"So I feel like we should promote normalcy." As the new Miss Hawaii, Woolford says she plans to stay humble and be true to herself.

"It's about representing all those people who helped me become the person that I am, the woman I am today," she said.

"And staying true to my roots." Woolford will represent Hawaii in the 2010 Miss America Pageant in Las Vegas on January 30.
