This is a video of two different clips from Showbiz Tonight where AJ Hammer and our favorite Inside Edition correspondent, Megan Alexander :-), are talking about the issue girls face today with body image. It's great to have someone out there in the media giving us some positive press about this topic - too often I feel like the message given to girls today is that they have to look a certain way to be successful; so not true!
I received a phone call just yesterday from a young lady who was interested in doing one of the National American Miss state events this year; she was worried that we would not allow her to compete because she has facial acne. On one hand it's hard to get those phone calls because it reminds me of the pressure girls face; on the other hand I'm glad to get those calls because I get to tell girls like her that no, you don't have to look a certain way to be in the NAM program! It's great to be able to tell girls that you are great just the way you are, don't change, be confident in who you are and how you look.
Take a listen and hear what Megan had to say during these interviews:
