joy.jpg.jpg

Joy Tramaine Finerson is the current Ms. New York American Renaissance. She started competing in 1999 when she entered the Miss Hampton University Pageant her senior year. Since then, she has competed in several other Virginia [MAO] locals before aging out in 2001. Although she has yet to add a competition win to her credit, Joy loves what she has gotten from her experiences thus far. Aside from the personal and professional benefits of pageantry, the best and most fulfilling part for her has been meeting the most amazing women. Their accomplishments encourage her to follow her dreams and to never stop trying to reach her goals. They are excellent role models and she is very privileged to be among them.

HIV/AIDS Education and Prevention has been Joy's platform since she started competing and is an issue that is very dear to her heart. Losing three immediate family members to this disease, Joy has seen and knows first hand what it can do, not only to the person, but to those around them. It is because of this that she has committed herself to educating our communities (especially our youth) about HIV and AIDS, and what we can do to prevent it.

In 2003, Ms. Finerson started Queens of New York. As an official AIDS Walk New York team, Queens of New York is helping in the fight against HIV and AIDS by participating in the world's largest AIDS fundraiser. Proceeds from the walk benefit the Gay Men's Health Crisis (GMHC) and many other AIDS organizatios in the NYC metropolitan and surrounding areas. As the name suggests, QNY members include New York state and local titleholders, as well as, national and international queens that reside in or are from New York. Membership is also extended to titleholders from other areas as well as their friends and family.

With her training as a Community HIV/AIDS Educator, Joy plans to expand Queens of New York into a non-profit organization that provides the community not only withHIV/AIDS education, but mentoring services, personal and professional development, scholarships for adolescents, and other essential resources to further this cause as well.

Joy is a member of a very large family that is rich with traditions. In addition to spending time with them, she enjoys reading, making jewelry, collecting shoes, and ballroom dancing. She holds a B.S. in Biology from Hampton University, and is currently a Life Science/Living Environment teacher; a position she is very proud to hold. Not only is it enabling her to make a difference in the lives of young people, but it also affords her the opportunity to give back to the awesome public school system that has given so much to her.
