What is your passion? Is there a cause that you choose to volunteer your time towards? Have you brought awareness to, raised money for, or implemented a program that will help address a specific problem?
If so, it may aid in developing YOUR platform! Your pageant platform is an integral part of being a contestant and reigning as queen once you win the title. Being a contestant and a titleholder for a pageant gives you a stage to shine a light on your specific cause or issue.
Your platform can shine a light on an existing charity, or you could take a totally new path and create your own organization. Whatever you decide, spending the time carving out your own place in the organization, based on your desire to give back, will serve a great benefit not only in your pageant journey, but more importantly in your life.
Participating in pageantry is about more than just the crown and sash. It is about how your voice and your actions can influence and help people. There is no question that a sparkly crown and sash can help to amplify the cause or issue that you want to bring to light. Nonetheless, whether you already have obtained a title, or are currently on your personal “quest for the crown”, CA Image Consulting will help to cultivate, create AND guide you through the process, along with the intricate details of establishing your passion’s personalized platform. With solid, clean, and concise paperwork that aligns with your pageant’s requirements and guidelines, you will feel confident knowing the necessary groundwork has been laid. Thus, allowing you to forge ahead and continue to build upon your passion, and further developing your personalized platform.
The way that your pageant platform is implemented can take on many shapes and forms. Ultimately, it is up to you on how you want your year(s) as a contestant or as a titleholder to be spent, and thus remembered. Volunteer work has always been at the forefront of the pageantry system, so be prepared to do as much work as possible!
In the words of Martin Luther King, Jr...
“Everybody can be great. Because anybody can serve. You don’t have to have a college degree to serve. You don’t have to make your subject and your verb agree to serve…. You don’t have to know the second theory of thermodynamics in physics to serve. You only need a heart full of grace. A soul generated by love.”
~Martin Luther King, Jr. (Feb.4th, 1968)
