There was a time when I thought, "I'm going to be in a beauty pageant." Miss Teen All American Pageant to be exact. Clearly that didn't work out too well for me, considering I am here and not wearing a crown.

Side note, I did win one award. The Amity Award, also known as the "Miss Congeniality Award", so better than nothing I suppose!

Nowadays, pageants seem more focused on positivity, success, and passion. This is a nice change from the "who has the best makeup and tan" days. With that being said, lets meet Mrs. Montana Earth, Quinlynn Wood.

The passion Mrs. Wood has for the environment, her family, and her hobbies it one to be noted. She will compete in January 2022 at the Mrs. Earth USA Pageant where we will all be cheering for her along the way.
