Congratulations to Queens Miss Compton Mailyah Mason and Miss Teen Compton Brooklynn Pierson

A total of nine contestants competed for the title of Miss Compton and five contestants for Miss Teen Compton at the Douglas F. Dollarhide Community Center this past weekend.

Miss Compton Maliyah Mason has always dreamed of being a queen, as a young girl she would proudly wear her hand made princess dress and plastic crown with rhinestones, to be seen by the crowds in the mall.

She has since grown into quite an accomplished young woman, the first African American drum major at Millikan High School, she is bi-lingual and bi-literate being fluent in Spanish, she also is an accomplished musician playing 5 instruments including, piano, keyboard, French horn, mellophone and trumpet, and has a trained singing voice.

She is a senior at CSULB majoring in Film, with a minor in Script writing. To her credit she has been on the Dean’s list, and had her first screen play “Can You See Me” chosen for production.

Maliyah entered the Miss Compton pageant on a plat form to introduce the children of Compton to classical music which is one of her first loves. Maliyah now has a real crown as she was crowned Miss Compton 2017 on August 5, 2017 and is looking forward to a year of growth and personal appearances to help challenge the negative image of Compton.

Miss Teen Compton Brooklyn Pierson is a talented outspoken hairstylist full of life, laughter and joy. She is always willing to help those in need and is a very hard worker. Her goal is to one day open her own hair salon.

Brooklyn is currently a senior in high school and will be attending Centennial High School in the fall of 2017. She will also be enrolling in cosmetology school to further her career as a hairstylist. For more information on the Miss Compton organization, visit
