  2. The purpose of the arlicte was to give a pageant insiders perspective on how the pageant industry has been evolving from a stereotypical beauty showcase to a scholarship opportunity for young women who are passionate about a cause to become leaders in their community. The arlicte also touched on benefits of pageanty which seem hidden to many pageant skeptics (including my mother). The arlicte was written from a titleholders perspective on why I participate in pageants and what I have given to the pageant system as well as what it has given me.
