“I think sometimes girls who compete continuously in pageants can get caught up in what “winning the title” means, and forget how to simply “win at life.” When pageantry loses its luster, where will you be? What’s next? LEAP is not a just a leadership program, it’s an experience; one that will challenge and change you in many ways.

I’ve grown so much as a person since first participating in LEAP. It challenged me emotionally and helped me develop into the strong, confident woman I am. I encourage any young woman in the pageant industry to attend LEAP. The skills taught here will certainly help you on stage, but they will then transcend pageantry and “crown” you with success for the rest of your life.”
