There’s much more to beauty pageants than waving and smiling, or at least there should be.
Pageant contestants are often derided for being “cookie cut outs.” They often sport similar looks, recurring hairstyles and predictable dresses. But the urge to conform is not unique to beauty pageants. In any endeavour, especially judged competitions, it’s a common trap to fall into what you think is the pre-ordained mould of a winner. The long and the short of it is just be yourself, whether you are preparing for a pageant or just generally in life.
