About the American Pageants Organization:
The Miss Teen of America Scholarship and Recognition Pageant was founded in 1983 by Mr. Warren Alexander, a former educator and pageant director, and designed to help America’s youth reach their full potential. The scholastically based pageant recognizes young women for their outstanding personal achievements, leadership abilities, and artistic, creative or athletic talents. With no judging focused on beauty or attire, the pageant strives to promote confidence and an Accent on Achievement. In 2017, the Miss Teen of America Organization rebranded as American Pageants to include additional age divisions: Little Miss of America (ages 7-9), Young Miss of America (ages 10-12), Junior Miss of America (ages 13-15), Miss Teen of America (ages 16-18) and Miss of America (19-26).

I Dare You ⚠️. …. I dare you, no, I triple dare you to NOT wait for the ‘opportune’ time to go after something you have been wanting in life 🙊Seriously though, don’t wait for perfect conditions to start your goals or dreams because those conditions of ‘perfect’ are very unlikely to occur anytime soon😑😑😑. ….. The truth is that the most talented, the most successful, the brightest, hardest, hustle savvy & might I add worthy individuals are often incredibly tapped out, busy, up to their ears in ‘to do’ lists and are bouncing off the walls, beating their heads against walls, falling, failing and coming across unsightly obstacles – ⚠️⚠️⚠️. …. But this doesn’t stop them. They aren’t pushed down or discouraged by the trials, they understand that despite all the imperfect crap they endure that there will never be a more perfect time to address their goals 👑🎖🏆. …. If I would’ve waited for the ‘right’ time… well any of the goals I’ve achieved it be to late. The time would have passed me by now and I would still be ‘wishing’ for: ______ – I think it’s very important to remember to be satisfied with your life, but I don’t think there is anything wrong with BETTERING your life and in my eyes, that starts with a goal, a dream 💫✨💫. ….. So, I really do dare you to step outside of your busy lifestyle box and realize whatever it is you want, go after it! There will never be a more perfect moment to chase after those aspirations 🌎🌟😍 Whether it’s physique, career, relationship or personal goals … Go getter baby, I DARE you !! AND Happy Thanksgiving weekend everyone 🦃🦃🦃. . . . Photo: @dave_laus 📸. MUA: @lorifabrizio from @twochicksandsomelipstick 💋. Location: @studiotwo22 🏛.
