HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

Miss University of Southern Mississippi 2013 gave family and supporters a chance Tuesday night to see what outfits she'll be wearing when she competes in the Miss Mississippi Pageant next month.

During a trunk show at USM's Thad Cochran Center, Hannah Roberts showed off several dresses and swimwear for the upcoming pageant, to be held in Vicksburg beginning July 10th.

Roberts is a 20-year-old junior biochemistry major from Covington County and is a former Mississippi Distinguished Young Woman.

During her show, she also performed the violin to give supporters a preview of what she'll be doing in the talent competition and spoke about her platform.

"My platform is Pages of Love and it's something I began in 2005," she said. "What we do is donate children's books, so as of this year, we've donated 18,000 to hospitals across Mississippi and Tennessee," she said.

Roberts leaves for Vicksburg July 6.
