Recently I have been getting a-lot of questions asking why I am so vocal when I am supporting other women who are also competing in pageants. I often get statements like “why? They’re your competition.” “Aren’t you afraid they’ll beat you?” “Aren’t you scared they’ll become more popular?” “You shouldn’t support your competition.” Etc….
Now, I understand those thoughts on the surface. Logically, most people wouldn’t publicly support the “competition.” But I do not view these women as competition. We aren’t competing AGAINST each other. We are competing WITH each other. We are all amazing, independent, strong women with unique goals and aspirations. The person who is my biggest competitor is MYSELF. I must constantly be working on my self-development and my personal best. I have to try to be the best I can be every single day. These women inspire me to share myself with the world.
Each and every one of us has a different advocacies, different personalities, and different backgrounds. We each want to make a difference on the people around us. Why wouldn’t I want to support them? People around the world deserve to know how amazing these women are.
I’ve had the amazing opportunity to meet, work, and train with some of the most inspirational women who compete in pageants. And I want people to know who they are. The larger their reach, the more they can help people and, in turn, the more I can help people.
