Social Media & Pageantry

As the pageant inches closer and closer everyday, the time has come for me to talk about social media and you as a contestant in this pageant. As we all know social media is a huge part of many of our lives and it can have it’s benefits, but of course it can also have it’s drawbacks.

Our social media accounts say a lot about us and what we choose to post can affect someone’s view of us. Depending on the language that you use or the way that you dress, other people make assumptions about your moral character. And when it comes to social media it’s best to stay on the safe side because anyone could be looking at your posts, including your judge.

The judges aren’t just looking for a cute or bubbly teen girl to represent this pageant system, but a classy and sophisticated young lady. So now its time to ask yourself… is that what your social media accounts portray?

If your Twitter account is littered with inappropriate tweets or your Instagram account is filled with unladylike photographs you just might be doing it wrong.

Here is a list of things to go by if you aren’t quite sure…
  • Don’t use inappropriate language or talk about inappropriate things
  • Dress modestly
  • If it’s illegal the answer is NO
  • Any and all drinking/smoking/drugs is a big fat NO
Basically, if you wouldn’t show it to your judges, don’t post is on the Internet.

So really, all you have to do is act like a queen would and you’re good to go! (After all, that is what you’re trying to achieve.)

All my love,
