I’m 17 and I just signed up for my first pageant. I don’t know what I’m doing, but I’m excited for the experience! I love music and I go to play and sing at nursing homes every Wednesday. I believe I deserve to win because of all I’ve overcome already in life. It has made me mature and realize life is too short for standing on the sidelines. If you want something to change, change it. And change the world while you’re at it.
