hello! My name is Abby Leasure and I’m a Junior at Central High School in Davenport Iowa. My best friend has been doing pageants for nearly a year now, and now I’ve decided to try it out. I was thinking about competing in the Miss Eastern Iowa’s Outstanding Teen competition. I’d love to learn more about pageants and competing and I’d love to tell you more about myself and my platform, which is encouraging today’s children to read and write more.
