I participated in the Southwest Michigan Pre-Teen Program 2015 and let me tell you if you ask anyone who knows me doing a pageant isn't something you would catch a girl like me doing. I would never trade that experience for anything. It was so much fun and I can gladly say I made lots of new friends some of whom I still keep in contact with 9 months later! It's amazing that I thought walking in this is just gonna be some stupid beauty pageant that is all about looks, but boy oh boy was I wrong! Everyone that works for the Southwest Michigan Scholarship Program looks for the good on the inside, not the beauty of the outside. I've requested Southwest Program to so many girls and I'm glad to say one of them is going out for 2016!! This truly is a life changing experience, I'm very glad I got the courage to go out for it! One last thing I would like to personally thank everyone of the southwest board members for being so kind and helpful the entire way through, especially Frederic, Kimberly, and Renee also anyone else I made contact with throughout the journey! Thank you for making this an experience I will never ever forget!
