She tried to trade in her pom-poms for suicide bombs.

Former Mississippi State chemistry major Jaelyn Young – who had been a high school cheerleader, honor student and homecoming maid – pleaded guilty in federal court Tuesday to one count of conspiring to provide material support to ISIS. She’ll be sentenced at a later date.

The Vicksburg beauty turned her back on her teenage pageantry after she converted to Islam in March 2015, when she began wearing a burqa and distancing herself from non-Muslim friends. Prosecutors said she “began to express hatred for the U.S. government” and expressed “support for the implementation of Shariah law in the United States.”

Young, whose father is a police officer and Navy veteran, sought to travel to Syria with her fiancé, Muhammad Dakhlalla, in order to become a medic for a terrorist group infamous for its cruel treatment of women and non-members. Dakhlalla pleaded guilty to a similar charge on March 11 and is also awaiting sentencing.

But far from a case of a love-stricken young girl following her beau to a Middle Eastern fantasy, Young agrees with prosecutors who say she was the primary driver of the intended move to Syria and continually prodded Dakhlalla to speed up their passport approval so they could leave.

“I found the contacts, made arrangements, planned the departure,” prosecutors said she wrote to her family in a “farewell letter” last August. “I am guilty of what you soon will find out.”

The couple was arrested Aug. 8 before boarding a flight from Columbus, Miss., with tickets for Istanbul that Young had purchased using her mom’s credit card without permission.

Authorities began tracking Young and Dakhlalla in May when the couple contacted undercover federal agents for help traveling to Syria.

Aside from her own admissions and actions, prosecutors cited prior online statements from Young expressing support for ISIS and ISIS-inspired terror attacks. Prosecutors said Young approvingly cited a video of a man accused of being gay being thrown off a roof to his death by militants. She also expressed joy at the shooting of five members of the military in Chattanooga, Tenn., by an Islamic militant in July.

“What makes me feel better after watching the news is that an akhi carried out an attack against US marines in TN! Alhamdulillah, the numbers of supports are growing…” she’s said to have written.

In her “goodbye” letter, she told her family not to look for her.

“Do not alert the authorities,” Young wrote. “I will contact you soon. I am safe. Don’t look for me because you won’t be able to retrieve me if you tried. I am leaving to become a medic.”

I seriously dont understand; why the hell would you want to join an organization that's notorious for basically crapping on women?

I wouldn't 'kill the bitch' but put her far far away.

Her stating that she was happy that the Marines were attacked and killed is enough for me to say she deserves capital punishment. Not only did she try to leave to join a terrorist organization, she's saying she's happy 4 of my brothers were killed.

Hmmm.. What the hell did ISIS been doing to our people to get them on their side? I know its not because they threaten their love one that if they don't join they'll hurt them.. Highly doubt it because those before her would have told our government about this problem.

Make you wonder if they have powerful mind technique to get people to join their side.. I mean by talking to them.. to convinence them to join ISIS.

I better not think too much of it, I'll ending up getting headache on why people willing to join terrorist group known as ISIS.. I got high morally....Well I hope so haha..

I wonder if her husband (Muhammad Dakhlalla) was the one that originally lured her into the ideology? Younger women who are more reliant on emotional decisions tend to do extreme things.

It's probably a combination of the brainwashing from Islamic terrorist groups and the appeal of "fighting against the big bad empire." I'm sure these same people would have found some other extreme ideology to follow if they didn't do gown the path of terrorism.

After looking at her older tweets I'd have to say that someone definitely did a great job of brainwashing her. It's very sad that it came to this, but this is reality and anyone can be turned at any moment. She ruined her life forever.
