Why start competing in pageants

The very first time I competed in a pageant I was 14 years old and fresh off of an airplane from Anchorage, Alaska. I was at a new school in Richmond, VA and I was looking for a way to make friends. So I decided to compete in the Homecoming pageant. I did not win the pageant that year however I learned a lot about myself. #1, I didn't need to win a pageant just to make friends in a new place, #2, competing and winning a pageant takes strategic planning and mental preparation, and lastly no matter what I want in life don't stop going for it until its mine. Since then I have competed in five pageants and went home with four sashes and crowns. I contribute my success to the resilience that both my mother and father taught me. My mom raised four of us on her own (my older brother, twin sister, younger brother and me). I watched her get up and go to work everyday. I watched her start and finish many entrepreneurial endeavors. I witnessed her studying late hours for years to later congratulate her with a huge bouquet of balloons and flowers when she graduated with her doctorial degree in divinity. My mother did all of this and so much more for us growing up. What stood out to me is my mothers ability to remain timeless, classy and glamourous. With my Moms' own extensive pageant career to back her up, she never neglected the importance of poise and humility. My mother has taught me 85% of everything that I know when it comes to competing and winning a pageant. Early in my life I lost one of the most important people in my world, my father. I was seven years old so one can imagine how traumatic that experience was for me. Before my father passed away he was paralyzed and before he was paralyzed he served as a Sergeant in the Unites States Army. Even through my fathers circumstances of being paralyzed, his acts of fearlessness have left a lasting impression on me and on my outlook of life. I watched him try day after day to regain muscle memory and take a chance using his limbs. Even when he couldn't move anything but his eyelids, his determination is what continued to keep me inspired that he would one day walk again. At the age of seven I learned the true feeling and meaning of being FEARLESS. To be fearless is to believe and never doubt in yourself and the desires of your heart. I carry the mentality of my fathers fearlessness and my mothers poise and glamour with me every time I set my sights on a new goal.
