Pageant competition: why?


Happy International Pageant day! In honor of #nationalpageantday combined with a #tbt remembrance, here’s a shot from 2018 by the incredibly talented team of Judy Wright and her photographer husband extraordinaire, Terry.

Friends, I had ZERO idea what I was doing. After spending the first part of my adult life in a green nomex flight suit and combat boots, then my present days in an airline uniform designed for men, donning high heels and evening gowns was a major stretch.

PLUS….I competed while 5 months pregnant!

That was 2018. This is 2020.

And oh how I’ve learned and grown so much.

What I love about pageantry is how its focus is on the total woman with a tremendous emphasis on platform.

Former queens have gone on to continue in service to their communities by attaining public office, starting world-changing non-profits, building rock solid families, and rising through the ranks of corporate America.

This year I am ready. I have a great team. My platform, Take Flight to Fight the Opioid Epidemic combines two of my passions: aviation and community outreach.

I’ve had so much support from so many….you all know who you are .

2020 has had an awful start for everyone. I’m keeping my chin up and planning on a strong finish.
