Nearly a month ago Virginia crowned it’s newest Miss America state titleholder. I must say that I am inspired and extremely impressed with the new Miss Virginia and I’ve never met her.
“Miss Virginia 2013 is Desiree Williams. She is a 2nd year graduate student at Hampton University. Her platform issue is Fit and Fun!” Is the description of Miss Williams on the Miss Virginia MAO Facebook fan page.
So to kick off Thriving Thursday I want to do something to help the next generation of queens in the Spirit of Style by offering free interview/communication and style consulting to pageant hopefuls who are interested in scholarship based pageants age eighteen (18) and up who are women of color. Why exclusively to women color you may ask? As a woman of color myself who has been in pageantry, media, fashion, and life in general I understand the stereotypes and sadly have experienced some myself in the areas beauty, talent, style, achievement, and success. Instead of complaining about it. I am choosing to pay it forward and share my experiences and help another your lady thrive.
If you are interested all you have to do is complete the contact form on this site and explain why you interested in a scholarship pageant, your platform/social cause issue, and why you think you need help. I will select three (3) women to work with on a one-on-one basis for six sessions (length of each session to be determined).
You maybe wondering what in the world does this have to do with style and beauty?….. Well, as a semi-retired pageant girl who holds an undergraduate degree in fashion and masters in new media journalism I can assure you that communication and style play a large role in pageantry….so stay tuned!
