Competing in the state pageant yet again took pageants to a whole new level for me. I still felt new at this and was "thrown into a pack of wolves" ...so to speak. My expectations on the whole experience were so different than the reality I experienced. It was harder in many ways, but I gained so many rewards that I didn't expect. We all hear that pageant girls are catty, rude, and two faced. In reality,you become part of a sorority of women who leave a legacy that impacts communities through charities and other causes. You make new friends and enjoy an atmosphere of glamour and fashion, while developing poise, confidence, and career-enhancing skills.
