PASSION TO BEAUTY PAGEANT

Oliver loves sports and has recently played basketball on her university Queens team. She enjoys fitness, public speaking, volunteering, and modeling.
BODY, BEAUTY AND BRAIN
Pageantry is overly directed to ‘body and beauty.’ I believe ‘brains’ come first as a beauty queen’s work goes beyond how the body looks but mostly comes with great ethics, empathy, discipline, and dignity to serve and fulfill causes that are dear to them and, most importantly, give back to the world.
