World Class Princess Magazine: Please tell us about yourself. My name is Addison Shaw. I will be entering middle school in August in my hometown. School is super important to me and I take great pride in my grades. I have a huge family that I absolutely love. I have 2 brothers and 3 dogs. I enjoy going to the lake and spending time with my friends. I'm definitely a girly girl but I like the great outdoors as well. I have a HUGE personality and I've never met a stranger. Every person out there is just a friend I haven't met yet. World Class Princess Magazine: What does women Empowerment means to you? I think women Empowerment means not living the life society says we should based on our looks, race or financial status but instead living the life that makes us happy. World Class Princess Magazine: Tell us about your pageant history. I competed in my very first pageant when I was 5 years old but then I took a break and just re-entered the pageant world a year and a half ago. World Class Princess Magazine: What inspired you to do your first pageant? The very first pageant I entered was a benefit pageant for a young boy who died tragically in my home town, but at 5 years old, I probably just loved the pretty dresses. World Class Princess Magazine: Why did you choose to compete for your current title? I chose the Pure system for their beliefs and the huge value they place on community and family. I like competing and dressing up, but my absolute favorite part of pageantry is being a servant and spokesperson for my community and Pure is all about service. I love that! World Class Princess Magazine: To those unfamiliar with your pageant system please tell us what is it about? Pure International is a faith based, community service driven, family focused pageant system. They believe in Jesus but they understand that people have different beliefs and that is ok. They believe a queens value is only worth the work she puts in for others and they embrace family values and know that family is the driving force behind their queens. World Class Princess Magazine: What are you being judged on during the competition? I will be judged on my communication skills during interview, poise and presence during formal wear, and the way I treat others. I think they want to make sure they choose queens that can go out into the world and serve people to the best of their abilities and represent Pure as the respected system that they are. World Class Princess Magazine: Tell us about your experience during the competition. I have had nothing but a great experience with Pure International. I won my state title in January and will be competing for a national title in September and everyone has been super helpful and friendly. I've made some great friends so far and I can't wait to meet even more in September. World Class Princess Magazine: Tell us about your platform or what cause do you volunteer for. My platform is "Remembering the Residents". My mother has been a nurse at our local nursing home my whole entire life so I've basically grown up with tons of adopted grandparents. They hold such a special place in my heart and I can't stand the thought of them feeling like they've been put away and forgotten. I love to visit and plan special things for them and just let them know that they are remembered and loved. The Covid-19 pandemic has put a huge barrier in my ability to show them love and I know they are feeling the blues without visitors. I can't wait to be able to go back but until then I am facetiming, saying hello through windows and dropping off goodies for my elderly friends. You can also find me volunteering for pretty much any local event that will have me. Haha I want my community to know that even though I'm only 10, they can count on me to show up and do all I can. World Class Princess Magazine: What appearances have you done with your title? As your 2020 Pure International Preteen Mississippi, I have made numerous appearances at state and local pageants as well as our local Libraries' Literacy desert tasting benefit. Due to the Covid pandemic, a lot of events have been canceled or rescheduled and I am so ready to get back out there and be the impact! World Class Princess Magazine: What are some of your achievements? My biggest achievement so far has been establishing a personal relationship with my savior, Jesus Christ. I was saved of my wordly sins and baptized on January 20, 2019. Another achievement that I am super proud of is finishing elementary school this year with consecutive straight A's starting in Kindergarten. World Class Princess Magazine: What makes you stand out from all those other beautiful girls? Standing out physically isn't very hard for me because I'm 5'7" at 10 years old. I have always towered over everyone else my age. I think that everyone who is just themselves can stand out because everyone is different. There will never be another you, so as long as you just be yourself you are already standing out from the crowd. World Class Princess Magazine: Tell us about the moment your name was called out as the winner. I was so excited to be crowned because representing my home state of Mississippi has been a dream of mine for a long time. I knew that I would be able to show the world the kindness and hospitality that lives here. World Class Princess Magazine: What does it mean to you to be a Beauty Queen? A Beauty Queen to me means being a role model to younger kids and inspiring people to do more in their communities. It's hard to miss a girl wearing a big shiny crown, so it's important for a Queen to show other people the opportunities out there to help. World Class Princess Magazine: How did competing in pageants helped your life? It has given me more self confidence for one, but most importantly, it has shown me what community service is and given me opportunities to serve that I never could have imagined otherwise. It has really made me see the world in ways most girls my age haven't had the chance to see yet. World Class Princess Magazine: How did pageants helped your selfesteem and body image? I have always been the tall girl. The really tall girl. Pageants have helped me see that being tall is a blessing and not a curse. I mean, models are tall and they are amazing! World Class Princess Magazine: You are an inspiration to all the girls out there. How does it feel? It feels great and also a little scary. These crowns come with a big responsibility attached to them. I just want to make sure I'm always putting out positivity and making the right steps for others to follow. World Class Princess Magazine: What is your on stage strategy to win the judges over? I don't really have a strategy other than smile big and don't trip. Haha I think if you just be the best version of yourself you can be, then you've done awesome. World Class Princess Magazine: How did you prepare for your competition? I am currently preparing for nationals by practicing in my heels and working on a fitness routine. World Class Princess Magazine: What are your tips for learning better pageant walk? A good tip would be making sure you have the right shoes first and foremost. They need to be the right height for you. Also, take sandpaper and scratch the bottom of your shoes so they won't be so slippery. Other than that, just walk out there with a smile and your head held high. World Class Princess Magazine: What are your tips for choosing right pageant dress? There are so many dress choices out there. The right color for your skintone is important and making sure you can walk without tripping. World Class Princess Magazine: What are your tips for winning interview? The interview portion of a pageant is the most stressful for me. I think just going in there and having a conversation like you're talking to a friend is a good way to tackle it. World Class Princess Magazine: What is one mistake that you've done during competing you wish you could redo and fix it? I look at every pageant as a learning experience. I have forgotten routines before and had terrible hair choices. You just have to move on and learn from it. World Class Princess Magazine: What other mistakes are made by girls during the contest? I've never really noticed other girls "mistakes". My BeBe has always said to worry about yourself and what you are doing and you'll never go wrong. I think that's pretty good advice. World Class Princess Magazine: Any modeling or acting experience? I have modeled for a few photographers and some local boutiques. Modeling is so much fun and it is definitely something I want to pursue when I get older. World Class Princess Magazine: What are your plans for 2020 as a Queen? My plans are to represent my title to the best of my abilities for the remainder of my reign. To be a constant presence in my community and to attend Nationals and make Mississippi proud. World Class Princess Magazine: What kind of legacy do you want to leave behind? I want my legacy to be empowering. I want people to know that eventhough I am only 10 years old, I can make a big difference to those around me. I took a stand and set the bar super high for my successor. Regardless of age, you can make a huge impact in your community.
