When I heard of this pageant created by Tonya Giddens, immediately I thought that this program and event would be cool and I had to share. Created to be a “springboard to nurture and empower young plus size women at Historically Black Colleges and Universities,” anything that empowers I am here for!
SO let me share with you more information about The Ms Full Figured HBCU Pageant:
“The mission of The Ms Full Figured HBCU Pageant™ is to progressively nurture exceptional catalysts for change for plus size women attending historically Black colleges and universities by empowering them to embrace their physical attributes, reaffirm their self-worth, and impact their communities.”
With its debut event for March 2014, Tonya’s goal is to fashion the Ms. Full Figured HBCU Pageant™ as the premiere plus size pageant for college women attending HBCUs. What a cool opportunity to be recognized for your accomplishments and earn scholarship money to complete YOUR education!
So what does this mean for you?
Well, if you are a plus size student currently attending an HBCU, you have the chance to win scholarship money and prizes spread the word! This month, applications are now being accepted on the website!
