Character. Compassion. Caring. These are values that all parents want to instill in their children. But how do you teach your kids the value of selflessness, hard work, and generosity ? The beautiful Ellie Malcolm, who won the title of USA National Miss South Carolina Teen in october, created a platform called “Give me F.I.V.E Today.” It stands for F-Find your passion, I- Initiate, V-Volunteer- Encourage and inspire others. The goal is to teach young kids ways to volunteer for at least 5 hours a month.

Ellie's mother put her in her first beauty pageant when she was just 4 years old - "At the time I really did not understand what was going on so I just smiled and waved!. As years went by though, I continued to do pageants almost on a weekly basis. I started doing natural pageants, which soon led to glitz (which was my personal favorite). Each pageant I did, I set a personal goal and it made me feel great on the inside every time I reached it" - she explained.

Ellie will have the opportunity to represent the state of South Carolina in the USA National Miss Teen Pageant later this year, lets know a little more about her through this interview!

Winning the title doesn’t just mean that you get to walk around looking pretty with a crown on your head (although, the crown is a nice perk). Winning the title is so much more than that.

Contrary to popular belief, beauty pageants do not necessarily prioritise only physical appearances but also empower women. The gorgeous Holly Legge, who placed 6th at Mrs Globe in China this past December, has been coaching and managing women before she joined pageantry - "I will continue to empower and inspire women to be the best versions of themselves long after as well. Pageantry gives me a really large platform to stand on and I feel like it allows me to reach further and it gives me strength in myself when I am walking women through hard situations" - she explained.

Did you know ? The Mrs Canada Globe title is a prestigious title held by a woman who embodies professionalism, sophistication and beauty. It does not discriminate against age or your relationship status.

Here we bring you the untold facts about Holly’s life and also her ideas, objectives and opinions… Have a look!

The military family has been part of the fabric of the United States since the Revolutionary War. Since the earliest days of the nation, the service and sacrifice of military members has, by necessity, involved the service and sacrifice of the members of their families.

According to the National Military Family Association (NMFA) 14% of American households rely on food banks, but when it comes to the military, that number is 25%. The reigning Mrs. California US America, Andrea McClew is a military spouse of 14 years and mother to two kids - "Me and my husband have survived 4 deployments together in our own way. Its very difficult trying to convey to people what the military lifestyle is like for both the spouses and families and pageantry was my way to explain a lot of unanswered questions" - she explained.

It also helped her introduce to pageantry an organization that she is very passionate about which is the ASYMCA-Armed Services YMCA. A free to low cost program designed to help military families in need. As an optician Andrea would like to start a program that will allow low income military families to receive high quality eyewear at little to no cost.

Many surveys show that significant numbers of students experience this type of bullying and sexual harassment each year, especially girls and LGBT students. But when it comes to reporting specific incidences of bullying and harassment based on sex, all too many school districts “see no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil.” That’s a mistake with potentially tragic and far reaching consequences.

The gorgeous Theresa DeMayo, who'll be competing for the crown of Miss Houston Teen USA 2018, was a victim of extensive bullying and sexual harassment in public school - "I made the decision that I needed to be the one to speak up for change in public schools. I withdrew from public school as a sophomore and officially enrolled as a full time college student at the age of 16" - she explained.

Theresa is now the Texas Student State Representative for Be Strong, she works with this organization in order to prevent bullying by introducing the program into Texas public schools.

In addition of this, her recent hobbies include ballroom dancing. She has recently become a certified makeup artist. Currently she hopes to be working soon as a professional model and actor with Page Parkes Modeling Agency.
