I want to encourage you today in what you’re doing. I teach musical theater, private voice, stage deportment as a career. But, even in my field, nothing asks for more polish than pageantry. It’s a place where girls have to care about their posture, about saying, “um/yeah”, about gliding in a gown, about shaping their views on politics and religion where they can be truthful but not alienate everyone within a two-mile radius! It knocks off the rough edges and helps these girls become their best selves – if they work hard enough.
Keep on keepin’ on – regardless of the general population view of pageantry, it is a GREAT thing that is unique – nothing else can do what pageantry does.
So, drive on – we appreciate you!
Hello to all of you at the national office:
My name is Leslie and was the 1994 Miss NH National Teenager state queen. I am currently a RN, happily married with two children. I still volunteer, because National Teenager taught me at a young age how vital it is to give. I remember nationals like it was yesterday. The best week of my life and year of my life. I will never forget that amazing experience. My fellow 1994 Miss NH Jr. National Teenager and I are still great friends. She was in my wedding and vice versa. We actually are having a ladies weekend in November of this year to catch up, spa and shop! Thought you would love to know that the friendships born in this pageant can last a long time, almost 20 years for us! And we both actually keep in touch with other state titleholders from that year at nationals. God Bless to all in the national office for keeping this experience alive and well for all.
I am thankful that I was able to compete in, win, and now help such an amazing organization! I love ANTSO- everything it stands for, the opportunities and experiences I have had, and especially all the people involved =]. I could not imagine my life without all of you and ANTSO
It is because of people like you that my graduation day was possible. You have been such an influential woman to me these past four years. I’m so thankful I found ANTSO because it has truly developed me into who I am today.
Thank you for so much for being a great and supportive pageant director! I love all your pageant stories!
Thank you for letting me be apart of ANTSO. I grew so much by participating in your program. I just went and auditioned for Oklahoma City University’s dance department. The scholarship to OCU definitely helps! I miss you! And thanks for all ANTSO has done for me!
