The Royal International Pageant offers a unique blend of glamor and elegance to the traditional world of pageantry and today 13-year-old Tillie Nall of Stuttgart will showcase her personal ambition representing Arkansas as the Royal International Miss Diamond State Pre Teen in Orlando, Florida.
With competitors from the entire United States, Nall hopes to make Stuttgart proud as she competes in the introduction, interview, fun fashion and evening gown portions of the pageant.
“My favorite competition is fun fashion because I get to spin and have fun showing my personality,” said Nall who began competing at the age of two.
Nall said she began to take pageantry serious about two years ago and was inspired by all her friends at the Grand Prairie Job Center in Stuttgart and the Reynolds Center in Pine Bluff.
“They always cheer me on and their determination and love makes me feel like I can do absolutely anything,” said Nall.
Competition begins today, Monday, July 6 with personal one-on-one interviews with each judge. Nall will participate in a week-long schedule of events and activities.
Besides her interview, Nall will also deliver a personal introduction on stage.
During the fashion portion of the pageant, contestants will model a fashion-forward outfit of their choice. The evening gown portion will display beautiful floor-length gowns in glamorous variations of embellishments.
Nall’s platform is TEAM- Together Everyone Achieves More.
She has completed over 100 hours of community service in the past year and will be presented with the Presidential Service Award during the pageant.
“I’m so excited about that,” said Nall.
