This Just In
In this day and age, young women are taught that outer beauty is more important than brains. They are taught that their hair color, skin color and weight should dictate their goals and dreams. Let's celebrate crushing the mold of traditional stereotypes because together we can...do anything.
Together we can.

Miss Teen Division
"I had a chance to let my personality shine and was recognized for it. I’d tell anyone to go try it. Being beautiful for a day can help someone be beautiful for life.”
"Just be yourself" is a term that is overused and under-appreciated. In today's world, this phrase needs a boost. There is so much competition in school, sports and extra-curriculars, that sometimes being yourself doesn't seem good enough. That's why we encourage each contestant to "Be your best self." Staying true to your own beliefs and ideals is important because that is what keeps you standing out in a crowd. But, that doesn't mean that eye contact, handshakes, and a modest, professional appearance are outdated. There is definitely room for those things too. Be you, but be the "BEST" you possible. You'll walk away from any challenge feeling great.
Together We can Make girls feel good about themselves.
Together We can Make a difference.
Whether you have a crown and banner or not, you can be a role model for others. There are many pageant participants who use the spotlight to bring light to an issue or platform they feel strongly about. This is a great way of raising awareness for a cause that inspires you.
Previous Miss Teen winner, Julie Gadomski spent her year of reign speaking about the St. Baldrick's organization which raises money for childhood cancer research. But, just speaking about the cause wasn't enough - she even shaved her head to raise awareness!
"Recently I attended a NOH8 (No Hate) event which is a campaign that supports equal human rights for everyone. "
"My gym teacher says: 'Be the light that leads not the shadow that follows.' I'm not sure if this is an original quote but I like it!"
After winning the Miss Pre-Teen title in Washington DC, and competing at the National Competition this past December, Taikirha went onto win the title of America's Little Miss Pre-Teen District of Columbia.
Together we can encourage growth.
Together we can inspire the world.
