Why start competing in pageants

I have never competed in pageants. I always thought they were superficial and unnecessary (kinda like the one in Beyonce's "Pretty Hurts") and I never had the interest. It was only until I was nominated for Miss Black America 2018 (which I didn't know existed before the nomination) that I took a closer look at this particular organization and decided it was about beauty, brains, and talent, and there was also opportunity to grow professionally and personally, advocating for the causes I am passionate about and establishing a platform to carry out my public service goals on a larger scale. I was Miss National Honor Society in high school (also nominated for Miss Spanish, but I had to choose one title), so I'm not completely distanced from the "pageant scene," but I have never been in anything like this. I'm excited for the opportunities and the possibilities that will be presented before me to do what I love with the support of some of the world and this empowering organization. Update: I recently competed in Miss Black America and have come to realize the platform pageants give for pageant queens to spread awareness about, gain support, and actively do something about the social issues they care about most.
