How has pageantry prepared you for your future?

"As a junior in High school, pageantry has helped me gain the skill of balancing my education, sports, volunteer, and family. Being a part of my schools Tv Productions class, I'm learning first hand what it is to be behind the camera as a future News Anchor. I am certain with the education and skills learned in high school and the determination and drive of pageantry, I will be equipped to use my passion for journalism, in hopes to one day attend Florida State University.  Pageantry has also helped me keep things into perspective and has taught me how to effectively speak to people, in school, in public, on stage and off. It has given me a voice to inspire others to never give up and believe in themselves. Through pageantry I have been able to share with so many people the causes that are so dear to my heart. Most importantly, it has given me the ability to be driven and is leading me in the right direction of a successful future." Brianna Smith The 2015-2016 National Ame…

As a National Titleholder, physically I’ve been given a crown and banner, but metaphorically I’ve been given a a door and a microphone. The crown I wear has opened doors to venture to new places, to meet new people, and to experience new opportunities. The banner has allowed me to project my story, my passions, and my heart to audiences larger than I could have ever dreamed. I have traveled over 10,000 miles to 13 states as an ambassador for NAM. From spending a day at Niagara Falls, to seeing multiple Broadway shows in New York City, to touring our nation’s capital in Washington, D.C., to experiencing our rich history in Philadelphia… NAM has afforded me incredible opportunities to travel. Moreover, being a NAM National Titleholder has shown …
