Failure in Pageantry

Believe it or not failure is important. It is part of the success journey because in the pain of defeat you learn the skills of success. This is especially true in pageantry.

Only one lucky lady is going to take home the crown and it’s important for you to remember that. But don’t let that take away from the amazing things you have achieved already! Whether it’s your work with your platform or just being on the International Pageant stage, you have already done amazing things.

And the truth of the matter is, it doesn’t have to be the end.

The beauty of the International system is that we believe in second chances and that’s why we allow contestants to come back and compete a second time. Some of the greatest International titleholders were girls who didn’t give up and came back to compete the next year.

So, if you don’t win the crown, don’t worry! Because we all know that you did amazing and that you were a wonderful representation of the International Pageant System.

Much love,

Haley Pontius 
Miss Teen International
