The focus for this program is to provide an opportunity for young women to better themselves; the pageant encourages the contestants to gain self-awareness, self-confidence, individual pride, and greater social awareness.
Each contestant should be able to improve their ability to communicate effectively, to speak in front of people comfortably, and to stand up for what they believe in.
We encourage our contestants to find causes or issues they feel strongly about, and to become involved in those organizations that speak closest to their hearts. Each young lady who enters has different ideals and goals and strives hard in their personal quest for excellence.
Being able to participate would help me be prepared for my upcoming college interviews and winning the pageant would enable me to give back to my community .
