My Pageantry Backstory

I have been asked how I ended up competing in pageants, why I decided to do it and how was the experience. .

.

In 2008 and 2009 my daughter @satkinsongrier competed in the Miss Maryland Teen USA Pageant. One of the directors thought she was my sister and suggested for me to compete in the Ms. Pageant. Once she found out I was her mom she suggested we compete together and I would compete in the Mrs. Division. I immediately said no because I was not interested. Somehow my daughter convinced me to compete because I was already involved in mentoring and working with charitable organizations.

.

.

She went off to college and made me promise to compete😢❤️ At 47 years old, I stepped out of my comfort zone to compete in my first pageant. I was Runner Up for Mrs Maryland USA 2010 and did it a second time and was crowned Mrs Maryland International 2011. I have met some amazing accomplished women along the way and friends with them to this day with the pageantry sisterhood that runs deep and goes around the world. It takes a lot of commitment and preparation to compete at a state and national level. Everyone sees the end result but don’t understand the never ending work that goes on behind the scenes. The support system and directors who were in my corner were all phenomenal and I could not have done it without them❤️ .

.

The opportunity allowed me to use my title to promote mentoring, girls and women empowerment and importance of community involvement.

Asked if I would do it again and the answer is not likely. I will let others have all the fun❤️✨🌟 👸🏽
