Let me tell you a story about a shy, socially awkward introverted Tomboy that won a modeling pageant.
Okay maybe I exaggerated just a little, but everyone will tell you how shy I am before I get comfortable with you. I rarely start conversations and I always take the window seat when traveling- I prefer keeping to myself. So doing this was taking a leap out of my comfort zone. I had to go for what I’ve always wanted.
How did this start? I know people will tell you “I always knew it was in me” whenever asked about their journey. It was different with me. I’d always look at models on billboards or in pageants and never imagined myself doing something like that. This was not because I didn’t want to, I just believed it was for other people. My mind was already convinced somewhere out there people born for this and who am I to try something like that. So I nurtured the negativity and self doubt.
We had a mini pageant at school when I was thirteen. It was really small and just for fun. If it wasn’t compulsory for juniors trust me you wouldn’t see me there. I competed and won the title Miss Dorm 1. The handwritten certificate I got then might have not been important but then came the realization that I enjoy doing this and I wanna pursue modeling.
A couple of times people stopped me to ask if I was a model. Friends said I looked like a model and a lot of people told me to be serious. One person (name withheld for no reason at all) told me to audition for Miss Elite and I thought it’s not a bad idea. When I got there I also met one of the people that randomly asked if I was a model in town.
To cut the long story short I competed for the Miss Elite Supermodel 2020 title and I won. I cannot explain how happy I was and how happy I am even to this day. At some point I wanted to write a whole post on how happy I am but I cannot put it on paper. ( just pretend you’re reading a paper 😂)
So some people ask me what it’s all about. Elite Supermodel is a pageant that aims to prepare models for the business world through critical thinking, focus, discipline, communication and competitive skills.
Now I am learning all I have to know and what I need to go where I see myself. I am learning to believe in myself and I see my potential. I am truly grateful for everyone who believed in me. Thank you
How are you ? We winning over here:)
