You probably don’t think there are any reasons to enter a beauty pageant, for an educationist but I’m here to tell you there are a ton of reasons why you should! A lot of people think that it’s all about the big hair, beauty, walking around on stage, and being plastic! And all about glamour I’m here to tell you that what you watch on TV or from other sources aren’t true! These are the real reasons to enter a beauty pageant…
I would be lying if I say pageantry didn’t do anything for you! Because pageantry literally changed who I am, my vision, and everything I once was. It taught me so much about myself, and I learned so much about other key things in life from poise, grace, proper communication, building self-confidence, networking, and much more!
I would never take back any of the competitions I’ve ever competed in. I’m grateful for each and every experience I’ve encountered. Although, I may have not won every single one, I walked away with much more than a crown and title. These alone are my reasons to enter in a pageant.
First things first, and I must be completely honest here, I’m not the biggest fan of traditional “beauty pageants”.
I’ve never been a ‘beauty pageant’ kind of girl; when I learned that Mrs India was so much more than a beauty pageant, I did a little bit of digging. I looked at their values, the past winners, and I found such a synergy between the Mrs India vision and my own. Mrs India gives average women a platform to do amazing things. What’s interesting is that the ‘average’ Indian women are Superwomen in their own right. She is a wife, a mother, a home-maker, a career women, a friend, a mentor, and many times the glue that holds her family together.
As an educationist , a mother, a wife, a voice over artist, registered psychometrist, author and blogger, I related to this every woman. I too wear many hats and juggle many tasks… but I consider myself just one of the “average” women. However WE are anything but average. We are brave, ambitious, powerful women who many times don’t give ourselves the credit, nor allow ourselves to “lean in”. Look at business and politics; the number of women in leadership roles are grossly disproportionate in comparison to our male counterparts.
My wish is that I can motivate and inspire Indian woman – no matter their background, education or scars – to be unapologetic in recognising ourselves as massive forces in society. To come forward and take on those leadership roles. To teach our daughters to be fearless, and teach our sons to respect our women.
