Are you looking to raise a creative young woman someday? Perhaps, an advertising executive, fashion designer, or runway model? Or, how about an aspiring tv/film actress? It can all happen with the help of regional pageant competitions. Imagine a group of girls meeting for a beauty pageant, such as Miss Malibu USA who become lifelong friends and feed off of one another's aspirations. Their aspirations are to do good in society, whether through charity work that adds to their profile and yearns to make the world a better place. All contestants are either in college or have earned a degree in communications, fashion design, mechanical engineering, psychology, advertising and/or business, among others. Your child will be more focused to complete their degree, due to the network she has developed through pageantry. I have attended Miss Malibu USA and have heard a soap opera casting director talk to a local/regional titleholder to be cast as an actress--how exciting is that for the former Miss Malibu USA?! I have researched girls and young women in the midst of competition and what their goals in life are, which are pretty ambitious. I believe the pageant world develops girls into ambitious women later in life with a heart of gold. Former Miss Malibu USA titleholders have gone on to become television news broadcasters, social media business owners, reality tv stars, film actresses, entertainment tv hosts, and role models.
