World Class Beauty Queens: Please tell us about yourself.
My name is Brittany and I was born in Cheyenne, Wyoming on the Air Force base. Both of my parents were in the military and I moved around the United States most of my childhood. I went to college in southern California at Azusa Pacific University where I received a degree in Psychology and Biblical Studies. I met my husband in college and we now have 3 beautiful children together.
World Class Beauty Queens: What does women Empowerment means to you?
Empowerment to me is being defined as being able to do hard things. There are various women empowerment movements, but I know first hand the incredibly hard task that it is being a wife and mother. After the loss of my son in my second trimester of pregnancy I was empowered to help other women through such a difficult grieving time. I went on to become a Certified Stillbirth & Bereavement Doula to support, encourage, and empower women through the difficult time of child loss.
World Class Beauty Queens: Tell us about your pageant history.
I competed in a pageant in my pre-teen days in California. Then life happened while pursuing academics and a family and I came across the opportunity to participate in the Mrs Washington for America pageant. I am currently a city queen and participating in the Mrs Washington pageant in May of 2020.
World Class Beauty Queens: What inspired you to do your first pageant?
I was inspired to use my hard-working personality and ability to relate to a diversity of people to bring positive change to my community. I wanted to use my voice as a speaker not just for my platform of supporting our police officers but to show that moms can lead busy lives but still make an impact in their communities.
World Class Beauty Queens: Why did you choose to compete for your current title?
I was really looking for an outlet to bring my community together and bridge the gap of our differences. I also wanted to give back to my community and make sure people are getting connected and aware of all types of services available to them.
World Class Beauty Queens: To those unfamiliar with your pageant system please tell us what is it about?
The Mrs Washington for America pageant is for married women of all ages who want to empower and mentor women to make a difference in their communities.
World Class Beauty Queens: What are you being judged on during the competition?
During the competition we are being judged primarily on 3 categories- interview 50%, swimsuit 25%, and formal gown 25%. There are also awards within the pageant for most community service, physical fitness, photogenic, etc
World Class Beauty Queens: Tell us about your experience during the competition.
I am an outgoing social person quite naturally, so being in a competition such as this just fueled me. I enjoy making new friends and challenging myself to improve on my skills.
World Class Beauty Queens: Tell us about your platform or what cause do you volunteer for.
My platform is about supporting law enforcement and their families, specifically after a spouse is killed in the line of duty. I support the foundation called Behind the Badge in raising funds for the families who have experienced a loss. I have seen multiple wives lose their spouse and although there is an outpouring of support the first few months, but these women are then left forgotten about. I want continued services and awareness made for this families.
World Class Beauty Queens: What appearances have you done with your title?
I have collaborated with many local businesses from volunteering in races for a soldier, story times with kids, participating in parades and volunteering for auctions and events to raise funds for various organizations.
World Class Beauty Queens: What are some of your achievements?
First and foremost I am proud of being a mother. My 3 children are my greatest achievements and hope that they are being raised well to love Jesus and His people. I am proud of graduating college on time while working full time. I am proud of the time I went on a medical missions trip as a doula to Uganda to help women and children. I hope that I am making an impact on the world and not just volunteering my time but spreading the love of Jesus.
World Class Beauty Queens: What is your on stage strategy to win the judges over?
To be myself and give the best testimony of my life and impact that I believe I can have in my community.
World Class Beauty Queens: What makes you stand out from all those other beautiful girls?
I believe that all of us are unique and bring our own story to the stage. For me specifically, I think that I bring a well rounded life experience. I have been involved with the military, law enforcement, being a wife, being a mother to multiples, experiencing late term child loss, having experienced public and private school systems, also the adaptability to conform to different situations and people. I feel that I can be relatable on many levels and bring wise life experience in my young years.
World Class Beauty Queens: Tell us about the moment your name was called out as the winner.
I was ecstatic to be given the opportunity to represent my community and city and knew that life was about to change.
World Class Beauty Queens: What does it mean to you to be a Beauty Queen?
To be a beauty queen is so much more than physical appearance. I am often complimented on my beauty, but my hope is that people will see my heart and soul that I pour into other people and my community and want to use the stage that I am on for change.
World Class Beauty Queens: How did competing in pageants helped your life?
It is too early to say since I am new in my reign this year. I think that I can see the community networking that I am able to do to bring awareness to my platform, raise funds, and bring different people together. Even if I am able to help one woman or mother feel capable to achieve their dreams or great things then I have succeeded.
World Class Beauty Queens: How did pageants helped your selfesteem and body image?
Pageants have helped my body image by wanting to be a healthy example for young women and girls. I want to show young girls that you can be a wife and a mother (of three!) and can still feel confident and great in your skin. Although pageants are not based off beauty alone, they have helped me to embrace my stretch marks and be proud of the hard work I have put in!
World Class Beauty Queens: You are an inspiration to all the girls out there. How does it feel?
It is humbling. It is a big honor to be looked up to and recognized for my work in the community, and I feel grateful for the opportunity and hope that I can inspire them to reach their goals and that they can be a mother and still make an impact outside of their home.
World Class Beauty Queens: What are your tips for learning better pageant walk?
Practice! Some women are more confident than others in walking in heels. Just be confident and practice.
World Class Beauty Queens: What are your tips for choosing right pageant dress?
I would say pick a dress that you love and feel beautiful in. Choose something that is your style and personality and instead of choosing what it is in style, you are standing out for showing your uniqueness.
World Class Beauty Queens: What are your tips for winning interview?
The interview is the best part of the competition. It is an opportunity to tell them all about you! Share your platform, be authentic in your presentation and give an honest assessment of who you are. Be yourself and confident!
World Class Beauty Queens: How did you prepare for your competition?
I do not think that I prepared out of my normal lifestyle. I already try to eat healthy and live an active lifestyle. I was already an active member in my community, did volunteer work and involved in my church. I think I had to prepare for my glam than my normal mom life, otherwise I spoke on my platform more than a typical time.
World Class Beauty Queens: What is one mistake that you've done during competing you wish you could redo and fix it?
I do not like to wallow on mistakes but see all of life's trials as opportunities for growth. I wish that I took the time to make more friends in the pageant system and do more things together!
World Class Beauty Queens: What other mistakes are made by girls during the contest?
I do not want to speak for other women, but I think a common mistake that other girls make is not monitoring their social media. People are following you or watching you on social media and we need to make sure during our reign that we are being appropriate and always having a positive impact and appropriate comments.
World Class Beauty Queens: Any modeling or acting experience?
Some modeling experience from 18-22 years old.
World Class Beauty Queens: What are your plans for 2019 as a Queen?
I will continue my work with police officers and their families and hoping to bring more awareness. I am planning on working with various community organizations, supporting local businesses, and hoping that I can make a difference for the next generation. I want people to know that they are not alone and with our generation of technology that we are able to connect more now than ever. I want mothers to know they are not alone and that we are all in this together.
World Class Beauty Queens: What kind of legacy do you want to leave behind?
I want to leave behind the legacy that you can do hard things! Women and mothers are capable of pursuing their dreams, stepping out of their comfort zones and to never give up on the things that set your soul on fire!
