Hello there!! How are you guys doing?
Thank you for coming (back?) to read my posts. It is well appreciated.
What are we talking about today? Well, let’s talk about risk, stepping out of my comfort zone and pageantry! An awful lot some would think but really in this case, they are all linked.
In May this year, a picture about a pageant (Mr and Miss West Indies UK) came up on my Insta explorer page. Looked at it, considered it but moved on. Days later, it came back up so I asked a friend what she thought of it. As my hype girl, she did what she knows best: she hyped me up. Anyways, I ended up applying. By the next morning, I had an e-mail saying I was accepted in the competition and of course, I got well excited…. why wouldn’t I?!
Fast forward to our first meeting then the second one etc…
Before and after each meeting, I start thinking about the “hows” and “whys” and “what ifs”. When I saw the other contestants and what they had done in the past, when I considered the fact that some have already done pageants before, I doubted myself but by God’s grace, I have been able to complete the tasks and I’m learning and growing.
“For the Spirit God gave us does not make us timid, but gives us power, love and self-discipline.”

As you may have guessed, I will be representing HAITI *woop woop*
I feel sooooooooo honoured to be able to do so. I have been teaching the other contestants about Haiti since then.
Starting this pageant helped me get in touch with members of the Haitian community in the UK and oh my the support is sooooooo real!!
As I said, it is something way out of my comfort zone, because I have to convince people, I have people judging what I do and how I do things. I try not to think about the stressful part too much: I need to secure sponsors, I am looking at outfits to wear, I need to consider how best to represent Haiti!!!
Below are some of the other contestants!
Even if I did not win the pageant, knowing that I tried and tried my hardest would be good enough for me. Of course, I am there to win because it would be a good start for what I want to do in the near future. I trust God to make a way!
