Miss New York International Pageant

Community Pageantry

This last Saturday, I was lucky enough to be able to attend the 2012 Teen, Miss, and Mrs New York International Pageant, held at the Villa Roma resort in Callicoon, New York. Even though it is not the MAO system that I compete in, I am still very happy that I was able to go watch, and support some pageant sisters. Watching it opened my eyes so some improvements I could make in my own pageant career, but also I was able to support THREE MAO sisters!

Originally I planned to go and support Amanda, who competed in Empire Rose last year. She has been working very hard this year as Miss Albany Int’l, promoting her platform of Stopping Assault on College Campuses. Although I personally cannot say I have been assaulted at college, and I am very grateful, I went to a college where rape and assault was a lot more common than it was reported. I watched countless freshmen over my time there engage in activities they hadn’t in high school, put themselves in dangerous situations, and older students take advantage. All in all, her platform is very, very important.

The day before the pageant, I found out that Jesse was competing as well. Although I have not competed with her, she was the reining Miss Western NY, in the MAO system, and competed at the Miss New York pageant a few times. She came and supported us at the Miss Thousand Islands Pageant, sporting a sockbun (my favorite quick up-do/easy curl-do). I was excited to have two MAO sisters to support.

But then… when Lauren and I arrived, we saw that Vicky was also competing! I don’t think I competed with her, maybe my first Miss Finger Lakes Pageant, but she volunteers with the Finger Lakes pageant and choreographs opening number and helps out a lot. She is the nicest person I have met.
