Getting To Know LEAH LAWSON - Miss South Carolina USA 2016



If there were no rules in your life for one day and you could be outrageous, what would you do? 
I would throw a concert featuring all of my favorite artists on the front lawn of the White House!

What would you like to read as the headline in tomorrow's newspaper? 

“Cure for cancer has finally been found!”

Describe your dream house. 
I would love to live in a house by the sea on some tropical island, but more importantly my dream home would have a full time cook to make me food whenever I am hungry, which is like every 5 minutes.

In a bouquet of flowers, what flower would you be and why?
A wildflower. I am a free spirit and I feel that a wildflower matches my personality. Wildflowers also remind me of my childhood and the memories of playing in the fields beside my grandmother’s house.
 

How would you introduce yourself if you were a guest speaker? 
I think that all depends on the event at which I am speaking. I would definitely introduce myself differently if I was speaking to the United Nations versus a charity fundraiser. But I do always like to throw a little humor in my introduction and make people laugh.

Who do you want to be the next U.S. President and why? 
As of right now, with it being so early in the race, I am still undecided. However, my hope is that the next commander and chief of our country realizes the responsibility they have to protect the lives and freedoms of ALL Americans, regardless of the color of their skin or religious beliefs. 

If you could be great at one thing, what would it be and why?
Being a super translator and having the capability to speak every language! I love to travel, so being able to speak the language for every country I visit would be amazing!

What do you like to do for fun? 
Going to concerts with friends and attending sporting events especially football!

If you had one message to the world, what would it be? 
Equality. A challenge that women today face is making sure that ALL women, regardless of their age, race, or where they live, are appreciated. In the United States, women continue to earn considerably less than men. However, that is nothing compared to the challenges women face in other countries that do not recognize female rights, intelligence, or their value as human beings. Being Miss USA and Miss Universe would give me a chance to champion this cause globally.
Why should you be the next Miss USA? 
Miss USA should be relatable. Being the daughter of a high school football coach, growing up in a small southern town, and standing at 5’6 with an average “womanly” body type, I like to think I am relatable to the American woman. I want women to realize that body ideals, like everything else in pop culture, are a trend. Rather than chase a laundry list of physical attributes, embrace what your momma gave you! And always remember: The media’s idea of beauty is subjective and changes, but CONFIDENCE is always in style.

End Of The Year Review - Pageantry In 2021

Runners-up include Miss Apartheid Universe and Miss Covid World.         2021 pageantry was characterized by a gradual return to normalcy as pageant competitions – which had been cancelled or postponed in 2020 due to the Coronavirus pandemic – succeeded in staging physical productions while paying close attention to universal safety guidelines.

Miss Universe and Miss Grand International held two editions (one each for 2020 and 2021), The Miss World finals was postponed for March 2022 after several contestants had tested positive for COVID-19 in Puerto Rico which hosts the pageant.

DAHAM DIAS, Mister Global Teen 2015, in a scandalous selfie with a Thai transgender and with Christian Daniel Ortiz, the current Mister Universal Ambassador 2015. Pradit Pradinunt , chairman of Mister Global Limited, issued an official statement yesterday announcing that the current Mister Global Teen 2015, Daham Dias from Sri Lanka, will not be dethroned following the release of a controversial topless selfie of him lying next to a Thai "lady boy" (pre-op transgendered woman) and Christian Daniel Ortiz , the current Mister Universal Ambassador 2015 from Puerto Rico.
