Inspiring Pageant Queens

Let's chat about some amazing and inspiring beauty queens.

This is Kirsten Haglund, Miss America 2008.
Kirsten had an eating disorder, overcame it and then went on to compete
in pageants.
She won her first pageant on her first try and it was straight launch for her
from local, to state, to Miss America.
She was born to make a difference.
She chose her platform from personal experience, eating disorders.
As Miss America, she started a foundation that helps
girls fight and overcome eating disorders.
She is phenomenal...I am in awe of everything she does!

This is Miss Alaska, Debbe Jo Ebben. 
She shaved her head 3 months before competing at Miss Alaska.
She shaved her head to raise more than $4,000 for the St. Baldrick's Foundation,
which donates money for childhood cancer research.
She shaved it to let children who have cancer know that it
is OK to have a bald head.
Wow, what a hero I would say.
Check out an article on her HERE!

This is Abigail Hardin.
Abigail was born with a huge birthmark on her cheek.
She was very insecure about it and struggled to feel beautiful.
She was Miss Hoover 2010 and used her
title to help kids embrace their differences and be happy
in their own skin.
She even wrote a book titled "Look at me, I am just like you"

I LOVE pageants, there is so much good that can be done
by these amazing girls and their inspiring stories. 
These girls are taking their platform to amazing levels
and changing the world!
