"I was first introduced to pageantry about a year ago when I took my frist evening gown type dress to get altered. Naturally, the seamstress asked which pageant I was getting my dress altered for, to which I replied with shocked silence. I had never even spared pageantry a second thought until then! To make a very long story short, she encouraged me to enter into the America system due to my violin skills and I now have the title of Miss Gilbert's Outstanding Teen 2015. I am 16 years old and was born on February 8th, and am a triplet, with two brothers. My platform is Enriching Lives through Music, and to match my talent is the electric violin. I say, whatever you love to do, go for it! The things you do in life should be your own decision and passion, not based on the criticism of others." - Megan Grieser
Why did you decide to compete in pageantry? It is such a fun and rewarding experience! It has helped me grow into a more social and confident person and has truly made a difference in my life.
