Why do I compete in “pageants” you ask? When people ask me my why, this is it. Because I make a lasting impression on children’s lives daily. When a little girl or boy sees someone with a crown on, their face lights up and they instantly run up to me or whomever it may be. I strive to be a role model for these littles ones, because you never know how much one little conversation, smile, wave, or interaction will mean to them! ?
