Calling all SINGLE, Beauty Queens...
Beauty pageants have been a controversial topic in our society since forever. There are many debates surrounding the topics of whether or not beauty pageants are a positive or negative thing for women.
Pageants have certainty evolved over the years and aren’t the same as they used to be. Although they’ve had a negative reputation for a long time, a new view has started to form in recent years. More and more people are starting to understand them and lose their outdated misconceptions as they learn more about the new way beauty pageants are being conducted.
These old-fashioned notions of beauty pageants are certainly out of the picture now. A new wave of pageantry that emphasizes brain over beauty has emerged.
So, let’s talk about beauty pageants, and the benefits of competing in one.
Beauty pageants are about so much more now than just who has the prettiest looks. Beauty pageants have allowed women to find and gain new-found skills, experiences, and confidence.
It can be empowering for women, as they are celebrated for not just their physical appearance, but their intelligence and talent as well. This gives women a chance to boost their confidence as they learn to believe in themselves and learn to love themselves for just the way they are.
Beauty pageants are not about changing how you look but embracing it and feeling beautiful in your own skin as you walk down the stage and own every aspect of your body.
Pageants also bring new friendships. Everyone thinks its cut-throat and some women can be, but others celebrate the diversity in the room and acknowledge how amazing all their other competitors are. They can become your biggest supporters and lifelong friends.
Pageants also offer amazing prizes, like scholarships and non-profit awards. Other prizes can allow you to network and open up new and amazing opportunities for you. It helps you form connections and gets your name out there in a positive light.
Pageants also improve your communication skills greatly. Most pageants include an on-stage question or an interview. Communication is an essential skill to take with you into the workforce, and pageants teach you to speak elegantly and with confidence.
