For 3 years, I have competed in pageants in the United Kingdom and it has taught me that no two pageants are the same. I created this website as a helpful tool to those seeking inspiration, help on anything pageantry, gain friendship groups, help with interview questions and answers, view pageant events or for anyone that wants advice whether they are a pageant beginner or have experience. In 2017, I decided to own the stage in order to build up my confidence and begin my pageant journey starting with Miss Swimsuit UK, followed by Miss Great Britain, representing Essex and then lastly Miss International UK, representing Essex (pending). I started writing about my passions, thoughts, and curious wonderings about our society and how I can help others like myself to make the world a better place and a more social media friendly environment. I founded The Pageant Family with a mission to give others a taste of what goes on in my mind, to help women gain confidence and feel less nervous on the big day, share stories or events and make long lasting friendships. I hope this website will benefit you on your pageant journey.
Why did I show an interest in pageants?
Unfortunately, I was bullied by girls when I was younger and always wanted a girly friendship group. I needed help building up my confidence and creating a new friendship circle so I thought what a better way to find a positive peer group than to join a competition full of inspirational, kind and caring people from all kinds of different backgrounds who want to help encourage the world to use social media platforms positively and effectively to help support others.
Why do I love pageants?
I love pageants because it gives everyone a voice on their views and issues that need to be addressed. Pageant contestants love to give back and help which is why I love pageants. Pageants have given me a wider outlook on charities, the community and discrimination. My favourite part about pageants is meeting new girls and building friendships. Pageants don't have a preference on what race you are, what age or beliefs you have, they welcome everyone. I have tattoos and I was worried I would be rejected to enter pageants but it turned out you are accepted for who you are and thats what I love most.
How have pageants helped me?
Pageants have helped me have a voice in what I believe is right and what issues need to be addressed more. When I was younger I used to struggle with getting my words out, without getting anxious, mixing up my words and panicking. Pageants educated and helped me with my words and approaching difficult strategies when put on the spot. Practicing my interview questions and answers has helped me gain confidence which has affected me on a whole not just in pageants. Thanks to pageants, they have given me the confidence I needed in order to speak slowly, calmly and correctly.
