“Be the crown, you are the crown!”
This famous quote by Victor Melling, the fictional pageant coach to Sandra Bullock’s character Gracie Lou Freebush in Miss Congeniality, is spot on when it comes to pageantry. Pageantry is so much more than the title, sash, and crown. Let’s face it – these are the tangible items that just one lucky woman will walk away with at the end of the pageant. However, I truly believe that every young woman was born with an eternal crown that is far more glamorous, eye-catching, and lovely. It is this God-given crown that I hope to develop and polish through pageantry.
