Amanda Lanning, Pure American Miss Ohio State

Q. How did you get into pageantry?
A. I originally started to practice being on stage for singing and dancing. It also gave me a chance to promote community service.

Q. What awards and titles do you currently hold?
A. Currently: Miss Ohio State, Academic Achievement Award, Role Model Award, and Presidential Community Service Gold Award.
A. Previous titles held: No titles, but I have been awarded The Commitment to Community Service and Interview award in 2009.

Q. What was the experience like for you when you won your title?
A. It was overwhelming. I felt humbled by God to be given an opportunity to speak in my community and promote my platform. Having the title gave me confidence in the fact that I can help others, because God has called me to help others.

Q. If you could only name one thing, what do you wish you had known prior to competing in pageants that would have helped you?
A. That I can ask for help. The pageant community wants to see people succeed. I felt like I was in this journey alone, not realizing there were so many people who could have helped me prepare.

Q. How has pageantry benefited you in your personal life?
A. Pageantry has helped every aspect of my life. I feel confident; give better speeches; know my self worth; am closer to my fiancé, family, and God; and find more ways to help the abused.

Q. Why did you choose the pageant system you are part of?
A. Pure American Pageant System is Christian based. I believe God should be the foundation of everything we do; that is why I do Pure. I also love that I get the chance to network with people of all ages.

Q. What is your platform and how did you choose it?
A. “Transforming Victims of Abuse and Trauma into Survivors” is my platform. I myself know what it is like to be a victim of abuse and a survivor. My life goal is to help other people become survivors and receive freedom. Ultimately, I want to open a rehab center, called “Safe Place”, for young women and children who have been abused to heal.

Q. Who inspires you the most? Why?
A. My pastor, Leanne Goff, inspires me the most. She is a strong woman of God, fearless, travels the world preaching, shows what Jesus is all about, dreams big, and loves all.

Q. What advice would you give anyone who might read this article?
A. You can do anything! If you have a dream, never give up. God placed that dream in you and has equipped you to do it. Let Him guide you and listen to Him. Also, if you need advice, never be afraid to contact me.

Q. What is the biggest obstacle you have encountered and how have you overcome it?
A. Going through abuse was hard, but the biggest obstacle was the after effect. I had to learn to forgive myself, and others, as the first step. In addition to that, I had to seek outside help; I went to counseling, saw doctors, and told my parents about everything. Silence can be the barrier that stops the healing process. Once I spoke out, I started becoming a survivor.

Saryna Ritter,Today’s American Woman Petite Ms. 2015

Q. How did you get into pageantry?
A. I received a letter in the mail about a pageant and it intrigued me. I never dreamed I could have the confidence to get onstage and compete in a pageant! So I called the number and got more information. After I found out that the girls had a platform or cause you could stand for, I made the conscious decision that I wanted to make a difference. I had a friend in my life that was severely abused by her parents so I did this for her. She did not have a voice for the abuse she was going through so I wanted to be her voice!

Q. What awards and titles do you currently hold?
A. Currently: Today’s American Woman Petite Ms. 2015
A. Previous titles held: Miss Royalty International 2014, Miss Midwest Galaxy 2013, National U.S. Miss 2013, Miss Illinois International 2012, America’s Ultimate Queen 2010, Miss Midwest U.S. International 2010, Miss Illinois U.S. International 2009 and Illinois’ Perfect Miss 2008.

Q. What was the experience like for you when you won your title?
A. Well my heart was racing and my cheeks were shaking waiting for the results! Once they called my name it hit me…I WON…OMG!!!! I wanted to do a cart wheel! I was surrounded by the most driven, accomplished and hard working men and women I have ever met. I was so humbled to be among these brave and empowered men and women. It truly is an honor to represent this system.

Q. If you could only name one thing, what do you wish you had known prior to competing in pageants that would have helped you?
A. Honestly, I did not know anything except what I saw on tv, so I wish I would have known at least the basics. However, pageantry has really shaped me and I am truly thankful for all the experiences I have gained from competing.

Q. How has pageantry benefited you in your personal life?
A. Pageantry has strengthen my life in every single way! Every job I have gotten I credit to the interview skills I leaned through pageantry. I have no problem speaking in public now. Never would I say I was a sky person but pageantry really brought me put of my shell.

Q. Why did you choose the pageant system you are part of?
A. This was my first pageant competing in the MS division so I scoured through over 30 different systems before I made my final choice. It was months of reading through websites, fan pages and inquiries. I choose Today’s American Woman because they are a platform driven pageant system. They have STRONG leadership, amazing communication, fantastic national royalty and the director was so welcoming.

Q. What is your platform and how did you choose it?
A. My platform started forming in 2008 when I signed up for “Big Brothers/ Big Sisters.” I was a “Big” to a sweet 7 year old named Taylor. The journey I shared with her brought me face to face with serious struggles in her family such as: illiteracy, alcoholism, drug abuse and child neglect. These are serious issues I was determined to find ways to help others at an early age. So I joined “Alphabet Kids” and became their National Spokesperson. We teach multicultural tolerance and understanding through literature. The base of all the issues I encountered with Taylor’s family stemmed from a lack of education.

Q. Who inspires you the most? Why?
A. The person I admire/inspires me most is Uncle Walt. He was my neighbor growing up and the person the entire neighborhood looked to for leadership and advice. I spent a lot of my childhood helping with his massive garden, learning life lessons from his struggles with war and poverty. He showed me how to be a great person with love and compassion with everything I do in life. He was always there for me, my family and neighborhood in times of joy and hardship. Uncle Walt was and is my foundation.

Q. What advice would you give anyone who might read this article?
A. My advice has always been to follow your heart and dreams. NEVER EVER GIVE UP!!!!! Big or small you can accomplish what you set your heart and mind to do. You are not too short, too old, too young to anything…just go and DO IT!

Q. What is the biggest obstacle you have encountered and how have you overcome it?
A. The biggest obstacle in my life that I have had to over come has been being bullied when I was younger. This is something that I only recently started talking about because it was so painful. I overcame being bullied by completely getting rid of anything negative in my life. It was not easy but I just kept telling myself one day at a time. I have always had a bright outlook on life so I was not going to let anyone ruin my life or future by putting me down.
