Early pageants[edit]

In October 2011, Esteves won the Miss Maricopa County's Outstanding Teen 2012 title. She competed in the Miss Arizona's Outstanding Teen 2012 pageant in January 2012 with the platform "Best Buddies" and a character dance performance in the talent portion of the competition.[3] Esteves won the state title and advanced to the Miss America's Outstanding Teen 2013 pageant in August 2012. She was not a finalist for the national title.[4]

On March 28, 2015, Esteves was crowned Miss Queen Creek 2015.[2] She entered the Miss Arizona pageant at the Mesa Arts Center in late June 2015 as one of 24 qualifiers for the state title.[5] Esteves's competition talent was jazz dance.[2] Her platform is "Don't 'Diss' Abilities".[5][6]

Esteves won the competition on Saturday, June 27, 2015, when she received her crown from outgoing Miss Arizona titleholder Alexa Rogers.[5][7] She earned thousands of dollars in scholarship money and other prizes from the state pageant.[7] As Miss Arizona, her activities include public appearances across the state of Arizona.[5]
