Albany- Much controversy has surrounded pageants in recent years. Many critics say they only focus on extrinsic qualities like beauty, but Miss Albany 2003, Kelly Bradshaw, has a different story.
Bradshaw says, "Pageants have changed. In the Miss America system, girls are more well-rounded and they have goals of giving back to the community through their platforms."
Bradshaw is new to the world of pageant, and she says when she looks in the mirror she sees the reflection of her mother, Shay who is a former beauty queen. Bradshaw says, "My mother was a queen in the past, and she helped me with my walk, interview skills, just to help me do will in the pageant."
Kelly and Miss Teen Albany, Carolyn Kimbrel, agree that the hard work starts now. They are beginning to implement their platforms, hoping to touch and change lives.
Miss Teen Albany, Carolyn Kimbrel, says, " I want to get out their help my community and hopefully make a great impact."
But most of all, they want other young girls to know that anything is possible, if you believe.
Kelly Bradshaw is a freshman pre-Med major at Mercer University, and Carolyn Kimbrel is a sophomore at Lee County High School. The both will compete in state level pageants in June.
