Women like Tori Cowen, make pageants look easy.
She’s drop dead gorgeous, dances beautifully, and has an incredible amount of poise on stage. However, Tori didn’t just “wake up” one day and become a pageant winner… In the Pageant Junkies Podcast with MAOTeen 2009 and Miss Alabama 2014 Caitlin Brunell, Caitlin talks about meeting Tori when they were both young and participating in the Cinderella Pageant System (hear Caitlin’s podcast here).
Tori’s goal was always the Miss America stage – and in an article inside PanamaCityLiving.com, Tori talks about how Miss America changed her life…
“I am very fortunate, the Miss America program has provided me with the opportunity to earn more than $35,000 in scholarships that will allow me to graduate from FSU debt-free, as well as the possibility of studying abroad or completing my master’s degree. I wouldn’t be the woman I am today without this organization. It has shaped me and helped me realize my dreams.”
Tori certainly made her mark at Miss America – earning a preliminary swimsuit award and placing as the 3rd runner up. In the same article mentioned above, Tori reflects on her year as Miss Florida and the potential impact each titleholder has available to them…
“The crown and title doesn’t really change you as a person; it just gives you a bigger voice and helps you reach more people. You have to have a servant’s heart! I want to make a difference and leave a legacy and inspire little girls as they dream of growing up and becoming Miss America.”
I’d have to say – Mission Accomplished Tori… Well Done.
