Everybody has different opinions, different priorities and different values. Something that I really hold to heart is self confidence, self esteem, being persistent and believing in the person you really are.
At the miss north Ontario Regional Canada pageant, my top 15 question was : What is your definition of beauty? I answered: My definition of beauty is being confident and being proud of the person you are. Its about embracing yourself and not wanting to change the real you. You have your qualities, you have your flaws but these are what makes you, you.
My platform is body image. What I mean by body image is that I really support self confidence. I believe that every girl should accept who they are. Body image deals with how someone views their physical appearance and whether others find you attractive. Body image is always something young girls and women have on their minds. They are constantly wondering whether they are skinny enough, look good enough, everything! But since when did beauty become an obsession, where is all the passion? What happened too loving the person you really are, instead of wishing you looked like a movie star. Society is the one to blame, after all, we are the reason beauty became a game. Beauty is not suppose to be something that consumes you, you have to be proud of the real you, beauty isn’t suppose to be something you can by, It doesn’t come from the clothes , makeup of hair color. But why are so many girls falling apart, cant they remember that true beauty comes from the heart? We might be tanned, have great skin and be a size 2, but having a pretty mind and a pretty heart is much better I can assure you.
Beauty comes from the inner self. Pageants made me realize what beauty is all about, It gave me many different perception of the world and many different opportunity, I wish that one day I can make a difference in society and show younger girls that they are beautiful , they should embrace and be proud of the person they are. With self esteem and confidence, you can achieve anything you set your mind too! I want to define what it is to be beautiful, there’s too many people that wakes up in the morning and look in the mirror, first thing they do is criticize them selves: too fat to thin, to small, to tall . Too many are striving to be someone they can never be, instead of embracing the person they really are. I believe that media’s are influencing too many people by showing a message that too be happy, to be successful, too be beautiful you have too look like this or like that. THAT IS NOT TRUE! To be beautiful, you must be you and not anybody else! I want to make an impact in women’s life and show them that they should stop worrying about there body image. Beauty comes in every shapes, size and color. Everybody is unique and that’s what makes a person beautiful.
