I was curious.
When I met Sierra (Miss Florida 2008) a few years ago, I quietly wondered…
What was it like for her to win a pageant?
Did it impact her self-image, and if so, how?
What did she learn from the experience?
I have to admit, I didn’t see the Miss America pageant last night, but it popped up all over Facebook and my CNN phone app. (Go New York!) As I scrolled through Facebook’s newsfeed last night, I was reminded of Sierra.
Last year she so kindly recorded a video for The Insatiable Quest for Beauty, sharing her memories as Miss Florida and thoughts on media awareness — answering the questions I’ve been curious about.
