Where Beautiful Dreams Come True
The Miss Universe Organization empowers women to develop the confidence they need to achieve their personal best. A confident woman has the power to make real change, starting in her local community with the potential to reach a global audience. We encourage every woman to get out of her comfort zone, be herself, and continue to define what it means to be Confidently Beautiful.
This year’s pageant promises to be one of the most exciting ever, and we are thrilled to have you as a contestant. As you go through the preparations involved in participating, we hope you find it to be a journey of self-discovery and development. Take advantage of this opportunity to learn more about yourself, and be sure to enjoy your moment in the spotlight!
The Competition? or The Crown?
"This is not about evening gowns, heels, jewelry, or the other 'pageant stuff' at all.
It's about providing young women a way to step out of their comfort zones that will inevitably help them grow. It's about providing an opportunity that helps to enrich their lives, through building more self-esteem, interview skills, poise, friendships, physical fitness, and making valuable contacts. It's about making an impact, and encouraging them to make an impact as well. This PAGEANT, is just our vehicle in which to accomplish all of these!"
Ultimately, success is not measured by whether or not you wear the crown. True success is determined by how you prepare, how you compete, and how you handle the outcome, because in the end, there is no such thing as failure when you grow through your experiences.
My goal for my pageants is that they provide a forum in which young women can gain more self confidence, improve themselves as individuals, and make an impact in their community. He believes that it's important for young women who compete in pageants to be able to feel as though they are better individuals the day after the pageant, than they were the day they decided to enter.
After it is all said and done, I believe that all of the contestants are winners by virtue of their preparation for, and participation in the pageant competition.
