I started competing in pageants for a greater cause. Women often lack self-confidence, no matter what the circumstances may be. I want to encourage confidence, it is not about looks or beauty but standing behind your own thought process and ideas. I want to teach women to have confidence in themselves. This platform will also allow me to be a beneficiary in many ways! I will be able to start my own charity for the youth and seniors. From a young age I've always been a calm, but outgoing person. I've continued to maintain my humbleness by staying positive and giving back to the community. Pageants are a way for me to express myself, showcase the confidence I have in myself, and an opportunity to create new blessings and beginnings.
