A Resilient Future
Some of the pleasures of doing my job are being invited to events, trying products, giveaways, and more.
I spent the weekend judging a Ms. Jr. Pre-Teen & Teen Pageant. The goal of the pageant is to "empower and encourage young ladies to succeed by enhancing our children's self-confidence and self-esteem." There was no talent or swimwear, just the highlighting of their inner beauty. I got a chance to meet and interview each of the junior pre-teens (ages 7 -9) contestants. Most if not all said they wanted to meet new friends and build confidence... of course the confidence part is pretty much coming from their parents.
