Entrepreneur and Miss Chicago's Outstanding Teen 2020
The youngest competitor in the 2020 Miss Chicago’s Outstanding Teen Competition at just 13, Eden Wilson won the Interview Award, Entrepreneurship Award, Miracle Maker Award, and the People’s Choice Award, and is currently serving as Miss Chicago’s Outstanding Teen 2020 (teen competition within the Miss America System). She is a champion rhythmic gymnast, owner of the Lemonerdy.com shop and YouTube channel, an 8th grade Honor Roll student, avid writer and coder, and a “the girl with the afro puffs” on Season One of Child Genius on Lifetime. She has performed monologues on television and at the Kennedy Center, winning the Executive Producer’s Choice Award for Best Female Performance.
She has appeared on WUSA 9’s Great Day Washingon, Washington Full Circle on DCN, and Good Day DC on Fox 5. Eden was also invited to BlackDoctor.org to discuss her prostate cancer awareness and early detection platform with physicians on Facebook Live for their over 2 million followers and fans. When asked about her choice of platform for the Miss Chicago’s Outstanding Teen competition, she states, “The problem is, we don’t talk about uncomfortable things, and when we stop talking about uncomfortable things, people die. If I, a 14 year old girl, can talk about prostate cancer, then so can you.”
