Pageants promote goal setting and will surely inspire a candidate to search her soul, think about the future and make a plan on how to get there. Sometimes, the pageant itself is a stepping stone to achieving their dream and goals.

The number one of a million reasons to enter a beauty pageant is to build self confidence and to express one self and share Gods given talent and to become an inspiration to other kids.
